I wanted to know if my softs have the possibility of pushing me into HYS.

As for ROTC, I'm trying to decide whether I should commission into the active duty Army or request an educational delay to attend law school first. Where I could get in would be a factor in this decision.


You are fucking with us, but everywhere but Yale and Stanford, at those schools you merely have a good shot.

In all honesty, you're a lock everywhere but YLS (aside from the schools that YP you). You seem to have decent enough softs for SLS, but to be honest, I didn't read the OP.

It doesn't.

Here is your list of schools you're going to apply to:
Yale
Harvard
Stanford
NYU
Columbia
Chicago

You want to go to school for free? Apply to a couple of these:
Berkeley
Penn
Michigan
Northwestern
UVA
Duke

Do not apply to any school not on this list.

Schools actually love ROTC/members of the military (especially if you've served abroad). I don't know what ideal career track you're looking at, but you are going to have a ton of options.

PM me if you have any questions.

Egregious NYU trolling.

A prominent poster here who is going to a T14 school actually did two tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and he said it had absolutely no effect on his cycle whatsoever. So take that as you will.

Lol. Placing NYU above Columbia and Chicago on the list was unintentional-my bad.

Regarding military service, I guess I should rephrase my previous comments to say that-in the past-it has been shown to help certain applicants, just like any other soft that will enable the applicant to "contribute to the diversity of the law school atmosphere."

Having ROTC on your resume is definitely not a bad thing, but it is also not a free pass to YLS.

I don't even think olympic gold medals and nobel peace prizes are free passes to YLS. They just put 3.9+/176+ applicants in a hat and choose randomly.

WUSTL isn't a degree mill but it's certainly an overrated, rankings-gaming UG.


I assume its full of kids from the east, who couldn't get Ivy? (sorta like NU)

NU is full of Ivy rejects, while WUSTL is full of Ivy+NU rejects.
