But in the first few weeks of LS I was arrested for class 4 misdemeanor public intox. charge. Truly regret this, obviously. Also will obviously disclose---since this info will come out through the school anyway, just trust me on this. How bad does this hurt me? Do you think Chicago ED is out? Is all of T6 out? Is GULC out? Anyway go through something similar?



Obviously, as you mentioned, you have got to disclose. However, I do not see a one time public intox charge as a huge deal or hindrance. Do you have anything else on your record that would make that charge appear more serious?

I doubt it will make a difference... What is that? A $50 dollar fine? Apply everywhere in the T14.

Think the fact that you're ranked #1 shows that you can't be spending that much time wandering around the streets drunk, and so I really doubt they're going to care. I guarantee some of the T14s would claw and bite for the chance to get a rank 1 student from a T1 school, which usually goes to HYS or CCN.

Won't affect you at all. Just disclose, and don't go any unnecessary detail about it. I had a PI right before I applied to schools and it didn't matter.

If I were adcomm I'd be even more likely to admit you. A #1 ranked student who likes to party? A rarity in the law school world. :lol:

And then I'll have to stay out of 0L threads because instead of annoying me with their pre-gunning they'll be annoying me with their lame playlists. Thanks. :roll:


Seriously though, good luck and enjoy T6.
