Where are you looking to apply? Are you going to retake the LSAT?

Tuesday, July 17 2018 at 06:37 PM

Hey, sorry, I know this post is super old. I'm doing a scattershot and applying to way more schools than most because I want to leverage offers and take the best available. I'm trying to go JAG and stay active duty for a career, so where I go matters less than total cost.

Tuesday, July 17 2018 at 06:37 PM

Also, no, due to time in grade and flying regs, this is my only shot to apply under the active duty program, so I will not have time. However, I scored 1 point above my study average after 4 months prep and about 15 tests, so short of being able to take a full month off, I wouldn't have been able to improve much anyway. I also underwent 2 knee surgeries, narcotics, and PT during my study period, so that hamstrung me a bit. If I am not picked up this year, I have 2 years left on my commitment before I'll separate and take another shot at law schools. I'll retest at that point and hopefully score somewhere in the 160's, which I think is closer to my true ability if I had been able to study full time and not while working.

Military Fee Waivers
Tuesday, July 17 2018 at 06:37 PM

All Schools on my list except Harvard offered me a service based application fee waiver when I emailed their admissions offices and asked nicely after informing them I was an active duty military member. 5 or 6 schools had special fee waiver forms I had to fill out, but only Yale, Vanderbilt, and Emory required that I actually submit proof of service (assuming the rest were able to see this on the application and my LSAC account). I scanned a photo of my military ID, attached it to an email and sent it. This was considered acceptable at all 3 of these schools. I did NOT have an LSAC fee waiver. I still had to pay the $45 per school for my LSAC report to be sent.

A Note on In-State, Non-Resident Militar
Tuesday, July 17 2018 at 06:37 PM

Almost every public school on my list offered me in-state tuition even though I am a non-resident due to the fact I would be an active duty military member stationed in that state should I matriculate. My aid offers were largely based off this; Some schools initially offered resident tuition fees as part of my aid packages until I informed them the in-state tuition rates would apply to me simply because this is not a situation they see very often- most military students are prior service vets and are using GI Bill benefits. I will not be on GI Bill and I will not be discharged before starting school.

For all Veteran/Military Applicants

Check out service2school.org They paired me with an advisor who matched my profile almost exactly (Academy grad from georgia with similar time in service/rank) who was able to help me out a lot. I learned a ton from him that helped during the applications process.

Many apps

Nice to see someone applying to as many schools as me lmao

Tuesday, July 17 2018 at 06:37 PM

Haha. Told you I'm a weirdo. Goal was to get in with the best deal possible. So far I've already succeeded in receiving a couple of scholarship increases just based on conversations. I hope to negotiate further based on other scholarship offers as well.

Where did you decide to attend? NE seems to be the no brainer here. Did LSU ever get back to you and are you trying to go JAG?
