I got in to Yale and Harvard but my numbers don't seem to say I would. The same goes for my three of my buddies who are going to law school all four of us out performed are numbers (no matter if they are URM) or not.
It was not your military experience that got you into Harvard or Yale. I had better numbers and military experience - did not come close to Harvard or Yale.
What was it then? Let me guess it was bring a URM? So why didnt every URM with my numbers get in? I don't care what you think actually but I have white military friends who also outperformed their numbers just take sometimeook through lsn and see some of the military cycles.
Edit before this turns into a URM debate. Of course I got a boost but our candidates with my numbers didn't get in. When I spoke with JR he specifically talked about my military past. I think it makes a difference. If you disagree then we just have to agree to disagree.
I'm thinking about joining the Army before law school as well. If you don't mind me asking, what was your MOS and what age will you be when you start law school?
Like you, if I join, I will go in as enlisted. I have no desire to be an officer, without first being enlisted and knowing what it really means to be a soldier.
