All I meant was his career past, unless he was a legal secretary or something in the Marines, is irrelevant to law school. Will an admissions board look upon it differently than any other job, say a fire fighter or police officer? You may think it is cool, but has no bearing on the law, unless like I said he worked in military law while he was in the military.
I'm not trying to put anyone down, just looking at the facts. Because you want it to be a relevant factor is not enough to make it a relevant factor. OP, by all means try, but don't think because you were in the military you have a leg up in law school. That is a logical fallacy. With your numbers you don't need soft factors like that anyways. 170 on the LSAT is enough alone to get you into a decent school. Good luck.
