Chances with several red flags?

Postby user4685 » Mon Oct 16, 2017 12:34 pm

3.85 GPA from an Ivy, 173 LSAT, good post-grad work experience. However, I have been arrested twice (once for underage drinking summer after HS graduation, once for disorderly conduct summer after college graduation). Do I still have a shot at T6?

Shouldn't hold you back - you're close to a lock for Columbia and NYU with very good odds at Harvard and Chicago (which both have a smallish chance to WL you or something if they're having a tough GPA year). You'll need to write a non-stupid C&F addendum.

ETA: Yale and Stanford are in play too, of course, but aren't nearly as sure a thing.
