Are there any schools in the DC area that allow you to start in the winter/spring January "ish" term??

If there are, they aren't law schools you would want ever to attend.

This depends on your own personnel situation. I know this is TLS but not everyone desires to go to yale.

But neither should you seriously consider attending a TTT school. There are very, very few situations that might justify such a choice. (Obviously I don't know what your reasons are, but this is the rule of thumb)

Who would live in New Haven for three years when they could live near Boston?

I totally disagree. Someone who has a 100% free ride where ever they go, has veteran status, desires to work in JAG or the federal government, has 8 years of paralegal work with ties to the feds, is older and doesn't want to take three years off of work, and wants to be happy in a certain geographical location, with minimal interest in big law could very well consider a TTT school.

The reason it is a rule of thumb is because I would guesstimate 3/4 off all law school applicants really don't understand what TTT is, why it matters or what they are really attempting to get into.....I do.
