With a DUI it's easy to make an "I made a stupid mistake and I won't let it happen again" argument. You're alcohol-impaired, you can try to portray it as a valuable learning experiences about the choices you should make while you're still sober. Or you can claim that time passed between the DUI and the application to law school, and in that time you've grown and matured.
What are you supposed to say to LSAT misconduct? "I'm sorry I cheated during my law school application process, I won't do it once I'm actually in law school"? You can't say "I was too drunk to make a rational decision, and next time I know I need to make that decision while I'm still sober"...
upon what assumption does your argument rest---haha, j/k.
I am eagerly awaiting the anonymous newbie that asks for advice after taking the LSAT drunk.
I knew a LSAT prep teacher that used to take every single practice LSAT completely baked. Rat bastard got a 165+ every time and a 170+ on the real thing sober.
