I'm applying to law schools now and I've gotten fee waivers from some T14 schools like (Duke, Vanderbilt, Penn State) but I'm a realist I have a GPA of 3.65 and an LSAT of 157 (though I plan on retaking it). But do those fee waivers mean anything or is it just false hope?
I'm also African-American if that helps at all.

Schools loved my military experience...it surely wasn't my GPA.
So basically what your saying is I have a virtually zero chance of getting into SOCOM if I plan on staying in the Army for only about 6-9 years? Though I wouldnt really mind if I just went to Ranger School and was put in an Airborne Unit like the 101st or 82nd.

If money isn't an issue right now, honestly I wouldn't bother with ROTC. You can go through OCS after graduation and you will not have to sacrifice your summers now as well as missing out on the military science classes and the FTXs that always seem to occur when you have something better to do.
Yea money isnt really that big an issue, basically my goals in the Army would to become an Infantry Officer and hopefully get promoted so I could join a Ranger Regiment or Special Forces. So would you say OCS would be better off for me than ROTC? Also what does one actually do in ROTC I know about the 4 week training thing I would have to do in the summer if I joined now, but what does one do at your school?
Oh and one Ivy League schools think of you favorably if youve had military service and a good GPA?

Seriously how important are they for example if I were to have a 3.8 GPA and maybe a 165 LSAT but absoulutely no extracurricular activities, would my chances of getting into a good school be lower as opposed to someone with lower grades but is more active?

So right now I'm a sophmore at a pretty good college and I definetly want to goto Law School and eventually become a lawyer but I also really have a passion for joining the military specifically the Army. So my question is should I goto Law School first then join the Army or goto the Army first then Law School?
Now please note I do not want to become a JAG or anything like that I'd like to go in probably through OCS and become a real officer you know the ones that get shot at. Also here a couple of questions that would help make the decision easier for me:
For one while money isnt really a big problem would the Army pay off my student loans if I went to Law School first then joined?
Say I get denied from a good Law School would they take a better look at me if I was in the Army?
And how would employers look at me if I went to the military after LS?
