"A few alcohol-related discipline actions, and was caught with a fake ID."

What exactly were the "few" alcohol-related incidents? DUI or like a minor in possession?

The fact you have not 1 or 2, but a few won't look great, but it won't keep you out of the T6.

As someone who has had my fair share of alcohol-related incidents, having a few makes it seem like you may have a problem. It only took me getting in trouble once to wake up and stop fucking around.

You might find it advantageous to look into a reputable admissions consulting firm to help you craft an addendum, though.

You have an amazing LSAT score that probably <20 AA males applying have. You're going to do just fine if you stay out of trouble!

Like drinking in my dorm room/playing beer pong. Nothing criminal.


You're good money, brother. Still, look into professional help with crafting addendum. 7sage has great prices and does good work.

It sounds like the actions were less serious than a DUI-type incident given that OP said that no criminal charges were filed.
That being said, we need a bit more information to understand the scope and gravity of these incidents. If there were indeed no criminal charges filed for any of these incidents, then being suspended from your school is probably the biggest red flag here.
Please give us a bit more info so we can give you better advice.
O'Drama is correct that you will need to write a strong addendum that shows how you accepted responsibility for this pattern of poor decision-making and matured as a result WITHOUT minimizing, downplaying, or making excuses for your past behavior.
I'm not sure that you need to hire a consultant to help with the addendum, but again, that is slightly dependent on the nature of these offenses.

Please stay out of trouble going forward because you have a fantastic LSAT and a decent enough GPA that you should have fantastic options if you can properly navigate this C&F issue


ETA: Okay, so the charges themselves are not that bad. However, being suspended from your school could be an issue (not 100% sure how severe it is - I'll defer to more experienced posters here) that you will need to cogently address.
