Since I am already fully funded through voc rehab does this play a roll in admissions decision? Is it something I should be letting schools know? I hope they don't get mad at me for posting this in another forum. I got pointed to this thread after I posted it.
I saw your other thread. No big deal man, they won't care.
To answer your question: yes, it COULD matter. I had one acceptance for sure where the dean of admissions called me and mentioned the Yellow Ribbon Program and that I would pay nothing in tuition. I was way way below their typical GPA floor.
Where I think it could really help is getting off waitlists with a LOCI, or with a requested additional letter of interest the school might request. You don't want to bash them over the head with it, but you can make a subtle mention with a "if offered a spot off the waitlist, I would unhesitatingly accept. My status as a disabled veteran allows me to choose a law school without concern over funding...blah blah blah." I just threw those words together, but you get the idea. I think it could help on the margins, and just take one more thing out of the adcomm's decision matrix.
