They definitely have made exceptions in the past, but I'd run this by them before you apply ED.

I'd call the office and make sure, but it sounds like you have a completely legitimate reason. Schools are generally good with scheduling around military commitments, particularly public ones.

I agree that UVA would be a more prudent first ED (though don't count on it working, they have a historical soft floor of like 2.95, and the only sub 3.0 admit on LSN this year is hispanic (not counting the 2.2 white guy who says he got in, there's no way that's true))

NU is a waste of an ED though if they keep up their ED being tied to scholarship money. They aren't opening up the wallets for a 2.7. The GI Bill support would be better at Mich too I'm guessing, and if so would probably make up for the marginally worse employment odds.

OP really wasn't asking for advice on where to ED. UVA's soft floor is more like a 3.3, their hard floor is really a 3.0. However if they were going to make an exception, OP would be the guy, 10 years out from undergrad + military + non-trad.

I do think OP should look at NU also though with that WE and LSAT. Michigan ED can be TCR though, especially if he's covered under the post 9/11 GI bill and yellow ribbon.
