Yeah, but you still don't think you did anything wrong enough to warrant expulsion. There's no humility in your attitude. It doesn't sound like you want to go to any decent law school so you can practice law; instead it sounds like you think you deserve to go to HYS so you can 1) prove the expulsion was wrong and unfair and 2) "reclaim" the prestige that you think was stolen from you.
You already have a great day job and career. Focus on that.
You are correct on all accounts. If I did get a HYS degree I may just go back to same job I have now. About 1/3rd of my colleagues are non practicing attorneys from top tier LSs.
Re humility? Yes, Yes. I am sorry for what I did. It was wrong. Fullstop.
But what’s illogical about the possibility that a transgression was not handled equitably. There is injustice in this world. Life ain’t fair. Most people who have seen the details of this situation agree. I am sure that others have no sympathy.
In your personal statement, you can write about your expulsion for cheating (and having to bear through your great, well-paying job next to HYS law grads) as a prime example of all the injustice in the world. That will go over well with the admissions committees.
