That's an important question for me because if GLP acceptance were notably easier, I probably would have ruled out the one school on my list that doesn't have either program (W&M). Given that the chances are no better, I don't necessarily need to cross it off my list. Thanks again!
If I could offer some advice, I would't rule out a school based on their compatibility/incompatibility with some JAG requirements. For a frame of reference, the last Air Force board had an 11% acceptance rate, up from the usual 1-2% acceptance rate. There are many people on this board who went to law school with plan A being the JAG corp. and are striking out over and over (like me). The process is just way too idiosyncratic and unpredictable to make such a huge decision based on it alone. Some schools, like William and Mary or ND, do place more into the JAG. But the toughest thing about applying is that you don't ever get a definitive "no," and the closest you get is after every other kind of employment is no longer meaningfully available.
Thanks for the advice. I only would have made that type of decision if the GLP acceptance was something like 25% vs. 10% for DAP. Given that there seems to be little or no positives with regard to increasing your chances, there's no reason for me to rule it out. And I'm glad because I like W&M. I know Hampton Roads is a huge Navy area, but I was surprised to find no ROTC detachment in the area.
