Does a high school suspension matter when applying to LS?

Postby Steve2207 » Sun Jun 03, 2012 7:11 pm

When asked on a law school application if youve ever been suspended or expelled, are they meaning from colleges or universities? Or every school youve attended from kindergarden on?

....

I have so many responses I don't even know where to begin to this question. The real response is no: you were under 18 and were a juvenile. Unless you did some sort of horrific, bloody stupid thing like piledrive your brother through a trampoline and kill him, no.

(not a lawyer, not legal advice blah blah blah)

Now stop being paranoid and go out and have a drink or something ffs. Sheesh! :shock:

Be safe rather than sorry. Disclose.

The thing is, I was literally suspended far more times than I can possibly remember between the grades of 6-9. Do I just say yes, and not write an amendum?

Can I conclude that the lack of activity on this thread is a sign that I am going to have a hard time getting into law school because of this?

damn it, I was afraid of that. I was hoping what I did as a minor wouldnt have mattered. Anyone know of any schools that are lenient about this sort of thing? Would I even have a shot at TTT schools?

Even if I had to admit it, I have no problem being honest, its just how do I expliain that I have so many that I cant remember? Im not even sure if I contacted my old HS, and middle school if they would even have a record of it! I am now 27 years old, so it has been several years.

what makes it hard to believe? Just because I screwed up alot between the ages of 12 to 15, doesnt mean I couldnt have turned it around and got my shit together once I matured!

This guy is pretty convincing. Though, editing your early post to include the TTT part was a dead giveaway.

If you dont believe it, dont post, I have better shit to do than sit here and make up shit for attention. Thankfully, Ive had a couple of PM's that have reassurred me that I stll have a good chance if I do well on the LSAT and keep my GPA up.

Bro, this guy is obviously not a troll (or else he's just a terrible one at that).

Its funny how almost every time a new poster comes on TLS and asks something that sounds ridiculous (to us veterans), people just automatically assume its a troll. Get real.

Sorry man, I got booted off TLS for a bit!

It seems the trolls found this thread before I could tell you no big deal. Sorry. -.-

Anyways, avatar size...I just found a big avatar and plugged it in. I don't really remember.

Best of luck. Ignore the idiots. TLS has some good information if you can delve through the bullshit.

Thanks! when I tried to put the avatar in it said it had to be 62 pix, so i went here, http://www.shrinkpictures.com/ , and it made this avatar this size when I typed in 62. Seems kinda tiny! (Please no one come in with any "Is that what she said" jokes)

Choose one with a bigger size lol I think the maximum it can be is roughly 300x300.

when would law schools ever see your HS transcripts or disciplinary record short of police arrests/violations?

Never

it depends on the law school. Some want this sort of thing (Ohio State); others don't. If in doubt, I'd go ahead and tell them.
