Disciplinary Reprimand Impact on Application

Postby tdevereux » Sat Apr 21, 2012 1:53 am

My freshman year I stupidly shoplifted several items of small value from the campus book store. I was caught and put on disciplinary reprimand (not even disciplinary probation), and have kept a clean record ever since.

I have a 3.6 GPA trending up, and a 174 on the LSAT. Do you think I'll still be able to get into T14 law schools, or will my freshman year disciplinary action sink me?

Oh, and I'm a triple major. Will that make any kind of difference?

With a solid addendum you should get t14.

No. Those majors will not hurt you. :wink:
