Here is my character addendum relating to my criminal record, any advice is appreciated. I consider this to be the most important part of my application.

why not spruce up your "im sorry paragraph" and just list the date, county, charges, case number, and outcome? the story telling seems irrelevant. my two cents

What is marihuana? Maybe I'm just oblivious to these types of things but I've always seen it spelled with a j.

It may help if you let the law schools know that you won't be seeking a parking permit. :D

The number (11) & variety of charges may overwhelm some admissions officers. Consider applying to at least a dozen law schools.

5 misdemeanor charges & 6 violations charged resulted in only 2 convictions ? Were these charges from the same incident or from multiple incidents ?

OP, you need to delete this now.

It's spelled with an "h" in the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937.
