Harvard has been very generous to veterans over the last few years, and they've told me it's probably going to be that way. So, it's out of question. HLS for free (worst case $60K). Who would refuse such a thing if you want to be a lawyer?

Unless I become insane or die (I hope not, I survived in Afghanistan) back home (I leave tomorrow morning), I will be at Boston this Fall. Thank you guys. I'm about to enjoy the sweetest 3 months of my life. Thank you all for advice.

wow, what an incredible deal. congrats.

Yeah, thank you. I mean, HLS for free tuition + stipends, just couldn't resist it. Yes, I want to be home longer, but HLS for free just made me say "I'll suck it up." Like I said, I receive more from America than what I gave to America. It's really American dream come true in 6 years. I'll still have to make it to biglaw, but I'm sure I have very decent chance. I'll be so happy tomorrow when I land at home (haven't been there for 6 years) and be able to tell the news to my old friends.

Thank God, between your two threads I was starting to think you were going to make a stupid decision.

If law school admissions were an exam, you just got a 100%. Congrats.

Enjoying my sweet home. My parents are not that happy that I'm not staying with them a year, but Harvard COA 0 made them happy. I actually was asked to interview with my undergrad for getting into Harvard...I knew Asians were crazy with Harvard but this is kind a crazy~

Anyways, enjoying my sweet time and hope the best of you all!
