Default What are the chances?

I was arrested for domestic battery
Domestic assault
(Dismissed)

Trespassing
(Dismissed)

I was reprimanded for trespassing once and sexual harassment twice in my community college.

I was also reprimanded for sexual harassment twice at my new school.

But I have a 3.7 gpa. And lost of volunteer work and extra curricular activities under my belt.
What are my chances of:
Getting into law school and or passing Character and Fitness if I just tell them about all this in my applications?

Depends on the law school.

Depends on the questions.

All you can do is answer the questions truthfully, with an explanation if necessary, and hope for the best.

You are not required to explain your past if there is no specific questions regarding your character.

Those things will not help you but likely will not PREVENT you from entering the BAR.

Of course once a member you would be held to a high standard of conduct and they could disbar you for ethical charges, so clean up your act if need be.

If all of this were to come up in any law school or Bar interview it COULD be a problem based on what I have seen happen to other students. Multiple reprimands often shows an inability to learn from the situation.

I would say it is more them a possible problem, it IS going to b a problem.
You should have counsel talk to you about what the odds are of successful admission, no sense in wasting three years of school if you can't into the Bar.
