I hope for your sake you do not go to law school this cycle. You have a lot to gain by taking several cycles off...

Called and texted a girl non - stop.

You need help.

You do not respect boundaries, and now you are making excuses for stalker behavior.

Plus, you are not telling the full story. You probably showed up at her house, her job, or even worse her parents house.

You are a true and genuine fawk up, and good for that girl for obtaining that restraining order. Even more disgusting your are not one bit apologetic and you feel justified.

Fucking sick....

Serious question, Rascal: have you ever been diagnosed with any kind of psychological/behavioral/personality disorder? Aspergers? Anything?

I'm not saying you were going to Buffalo Bill her or anything. You just seem very prone to wild swings, insane optimism vs. complete despair, and now the stalking...

By the way, I really think you're going to have problems at the bar. Taking some years off might go from being a really good idea to an absolute necessity if you ever want to practice law.

Since you will be well below both medians anyway, I can see adcomms taking a different URM, with lower numbers, as "safer."

Neither of you will help their medians or numbers, but at least the other doesn't have indications that they may do something to embarrass the school/be difficult to find employment for.



Well ok, but how much would the (most likely) disorderly persons harassment offense affect me if I were to apply again to Notre Dame? I got in off the WL last year but my application wasn't spectacular and, if I can't get into a T14, I'd definitely want to go to Notre Dame. Would I have to raise my LSAT now because of this offense? I think I'd write much stronger essays now that I have a more defined purpose but I feel like this offense is going to put a really bad stigma on my applications.

This really sucks. I'm not a bad guy or a criminal, I just pursued something I thought (and still think) was real and I really screwed up. :(


Contact the bar in the state(s) you want to practice in and see if you'll pass in 3.5 years. Going to law school makes no sense if you can't become a lawyer.

You should go watch the Alex Johnson video on the Admissions forum - he talks specifically about LSAT scores & URMs. My take is that basically you will not getting the score bump as a URM you might think you should, and applying below the 25th percentile is probably not going to work.

Not the news you wanted... but best of luck.

Hey buddy.

You sound upset.

I would hate to have been the cause of that.

Wanna talk about it?

Tell us how you feel.
