Extra Curricular Information

- Currently active duty Navy (Enlisted).

- Multiple "Sailor of the Year" awards across various commands (two in four years). Competed against hundreds of other sailors for each award.

- Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Victim Advocate for military sexual assault survivors.

- safeTALK advocate for military members struggling with mental health problems. Struggled with my own mental health problems after deployments. Used my struggles to act as a support system for those who needed it.

- Over a hundred hours of volunteer work.

- Completed undergrad in between and after deployments while working 40+ hours a week.

- First student at the University of Arizona to successfully complete four accelerated courses concurrently (equivalent workload of eight regular session courses) while working a grueling schedule.

- Multiple semesters on Dean's List including Dean's List with distinction.

ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

- Horrible grades first time around. 0.6 GPA my first semester of college at the University of Arizona. After enlisting in the Navy, I utilized the University of Arizona's "second start program" and graduated magna cum laude under their BA in LAW program online. This explains the discrepancy between LSDAS GPA and degree GPA.

- Will be applying to a few schools that are definitely a reach considering my very, very, mediocre LSAT score. Hoping the overall strength of my softs will get me into a few reach schools. I figure the worst they can say is no. I understand the odds of getting into some of these schools are slim to none but I am not afraid of rejection. Writing every possible optional essay.

- Applied this year for a navy enlisted to JAG ascension program. If I don't get into this specific JAG program this year, I will apply during next years application cycle with a better LSAT score. Will continue to update and willing to answer any questions people may have. Best of luck to everyone applying this year!

I am a Navy veteran, too. I applied to the STA21 program when I was on active duty. Missed the SAT score minimum (math) by just a few points. I'm rooting for you! Don't give up. I wish you well!

Hey, fellow navy vet. You asked when I got my Seattle U decision. Got it on the 8th.
