Hello everyone!I'm new to the board. I'm posting concerning my application and my situation. My overall gpa is a 3.71 and LSAT is 169. I'm wondering if I should even apply of have a chance to get into law school nonetheless sit the bar. You see, I have charges from 6 years ago when I was dumb and 16 for felonies! That's right 2 felonies, 1 was nolle p. and dismissed because that was deemed a case that me and my friend did not participate in. ( We got caught, the store then tried to pin a string of other shoplifting incidents on us, with no evidence). For the other charge my lawyer advised me to take a plea deal, which I did. I ended up pleading "no contest" to 1 count of fel. concealment ( concealing items in a store valued at $220.00) , in return I did community service and shoplifting reduction & rehabilitation class under "the first offender status". After completion of my pre-trial diversion, my case was dismissed and there was no finding. I understand NOW that because I plead "no contolo" that's a technicality of admission of guilt and pretty much a conviction for purposes of law school. Keep in mind these are juvenile charges, that did NOT go to circuit court. Do I have a chance of even passing the ethics portion? I'd like to practice in Maryland, North Carolina, and Virginia if possible. Any thoughts?
