Believe it or not, 10 is not a horrific number assuming that is 10 for JUST the law school. (Not great, but not as bad as it sounds.) Apply early and you will likely be one of the first ten AND 10 vets per class is quite a few for a single school. I know there are 14 total in the 2/3L classes here and we have class sizes larger than 400....
I was thinking that too in my post from last week - for all I know, ten slots at SMU may be more than enough to provide YR benefits to everyone who's eligible.
The one thing I've never understood about the advertised number of YR slots is whether that's the number of slots available for a particular class
(say, the class of 2015), or if those slots are divided up among all three
classes that are currently attending at any given time.
In other words, let's say a school is accepting applications from prospective class of 2015 members, but the class of 2014 / class of 2013 students who are already attending have ten students between them who are receiving YR benefits. Does that mean that the class of 2015 vets are out of luck during their 1L year, and have to wait until a veteran upperclassman graduates? Or does each entering class get its own ten slots?
