Criminal Record effects on acceptance to Top Law school

Postby Charlie95 » Wed Oct 19, 2016 11:49 pm

Hello all,

I have always wanted to go to law school and the time for applications is upon me. I am excited to say that I have a pretty good LSAT(174) and a decent GPA in economics (3.75). However my circumstances are not entirely great.

The summer after high school I got into some trouble (two seperate instances) with the law. The first charge was for possession of marijuana, and it was eventually dropped after I competed some conditions. The second was for minor in possession of alcohol, for that charge adjudication was withheld and I paid a fine.

With all that in mind, do I have a shot at T14?

Yes. Neither of these will have an impact on your admission decision. Just disclose them on the application.
