School Rep / Personal Statement

Postby JDLaf » Mon Jan 18, 2010 11:27 am

A couple questions for everyone. Be honest as well.

I am currently in the process of applying to law schools and the Air Force's law program (I am active duty currently). Seeing as I would already have a job upon graduation from law school (AF JAG) how big of a factor should I place on the school's reputation? Obviously it is a big factor if I wasn't guarenteed a job upon graduation.

Also, how much of an emphasis should I place in my personal statement that I am actve duty military, having completed 3 deployments to OIF at the time of application? From what I understand most schools want a diverse population of students and I believe being active duty military with multiple deployments could help my out my case but please correct me if I am wrong.

Any insights/comments would be appreciated. Thanks!

I would definitely emphasis that. I think some applications I did even indicated that being in the military was a diversity characteristic (don't quote me on that).
