Law school admissions and criminal record
I have 3 misdeamenor convictions which include prostitution, poss of drug paraohernilia, and bad checks from 2001, and I was charged about 10 times for bad checks that resulted in dismissals based on the fact that I paid them off before the court date.
These charges are a result of 15 years of active substance abuse.
I got clean in 2003, and have not gotten in any trouble since then.
I am going into my senior year of college, and am interested in attending law school next year. I am an adult student, 34 years of age. I have a GPA of 3.69 and have not taken my LSAT yet. I estimate a school of 154+
What are my chances of getting into a decent law school with this kind of criminal record?
I have really worked hard in trying to change my life, but putting these charges on paper has really made me skeptical of my chances of being accepted to a good school

Re: Law school admissions and criminal record
You are going to have a very difficult time being admitted to law school and an even more difficult time
passing the ethics review for purposes of being admitted to the bar as an attorney.
