Much the same boat... 2.0 GPA, 173 LSAT, record
« on: April 14, 2009, 08:23:48 PM »
I saw the other thread and thought I'd ask much the same question.  I graduated with a 2.0 GPA.  Scored a 173 on the LSAT (real).  Was arrested 14 years ago for a moronic college prank (broke into the school cafeteria and absconded with some uncooked chicken) and convicted of criminal trespass.  A) What law schools should I even be thinking about applying to? and b) how big of an issue is the conviction given that it was 14 years ago but would probably be considered a breach of trust issue?

Depends on what you want to do and where you want to do it.  For an idea of your chances generally, see:

Put your chances just slightly higher than what you see there to get a very ballpark idea.  Splitters are hard to predict.

Not big at all for admission or the bar.  I know of much worse.
But how do you deal with someone who rejects your broad moral principles?
I kill them.
