I'm 100% GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon eligible. I will be practicing at a family firm (small law), after graduation.
Michigan - I'm a Michigan resident and will definitely be practicing in Michigan after graduation. I most likely plan on applying ED. GI Bill would pay 100%, no YRP apps req'd. I don't feel entirely confident about getting in, which is why I want to use my ED here to try and give me a boost, hoping my residency will also help.
Northwestern - This is a close 2nd to Michigan due to family ties to the law school. I also really like the fact that their accepted students tend to have more WE and thus make for a more mature class. There have been days where I consider applying ED to NU instead. I would have to apply for YRP here though. I feel better about getting in here than U of M because of their preference for work experience, but by no means consider myself a guarantee.
UVA and Berkeley. Have to apply to all the top public law schools and get that free tuition.
