the darned lsac website said that statistically I would most likely get into akron for sure...that didn't happen. I really need CleveSt. or Case now. They are the closest to my home without me having to move. Toledo would be my next choice.

Well, it looks like you've still got a great chance at Toledo and Capital, and Cleveland State is still a reasonable target!  It just sucks that your first response was a rejection, because it lowers your confidence, but your numbers are good, and you'll get into at least one of those three schools, if not all of them.

even with a pretty bad criminal record? about 11 misdemeanors

Well, that honestly depends. How good is your addendum? And how bad were your crimes?

How on earth do you have 11 misdemeanors?!?! How olds are you? I hope that you didn't commit the same crime over and over- in that case its reasonable for adcomms to hold it against you.

BTW- when did you send in your apps. I sent all of mine in 10/31 and have heard NOTHING.....

I applied to 17 schools, all in by the end of october (EA on a bunch of em) and still not a single word from any of them. I think this is a bad omen, I'd better start looking for work in a temp agency or something.
