I really don't know if you get a serious bump or not, but the T14 is in your future with your resume and your numbers. Stanford might be a stretch. Thanks for doing what you do and good luck to you in the application process.

Expect to be in at least one of CCN and pretty much everywhere below that. HYS is a stretch, but you should certainly apply.

I agree with duckmoney. I'm an Iraq vet with similar stats (higher GPA but slightly lower LSAT). I attend one of CCN but also didn't apply to HYS.

Seriously though, with your numbers alone you've got a great shot at anywhere but HYS, and I see no reason why applying to all three would be a waste of your time/resources.

Thanks for your service!

Errah! Anecdotal, but I know of several Marines who've had luck getting into Harvard with numbers similar to yours. They love them some leathernecks. Also, I hope you haven't exhausted your GI benefits -- Harvard's contribution to the Yellow Ribbon program = $0 tuition for us vets.

Maybe one of HYS and Maybe two of CCN. Below that, you looking at money and a comfortable life. Thanks for serving, and hope the best of your cycle. Apply early as shit, get personalized PS, and you be looking at a very good cycle. Congrats.
