3.59/175/Military Officer/non-URM

Curious about what my expectations should be for law school applications,

I have a 3.59 GPA in History from West Point and a 175 on the LSAT. My grades were 3.65/3.2/3.7/3.75 for the 4 years, so there is an upward trend. For softs, I have military experience (one deployment to Afghanistan). Non-URM

Looking to apply to all the t14 in fall 2013. Also very curious about whether there is a boost to GPAs from military academies because of grade deflation there.

You'll get Columbia on down. Apply to HYS. You have some chance and you won't know unless you try.

Apply everywhere. Military officer is the kind of soft that can move needles with a less than stellar LSAT or GPA, so that and your 175 should get you some solid acceptances, maybe even one of HYS. You have a good shot. Good luck.
