    I know that there are some limited opportunities for graduate school for USNA graduates, what about law school?

    On the best day, none. There were zero law school appointments. There are some lawyers on here and they should confirm. If you wanna be an atty ... USNA is not the place to go ... UNLESS you're interested first in being a first-rate Navy or USMC officer and willing to wait at least 5 football seasons or so before you commence law school.:eek::thumbdown::wink:

    There have been a number of threads on this forum discussing this issue. A search will give you tons of info.

    Readers' Digest version: You can't go to law school straight out of USNA. There are some VERY limited slots during your first 5 years of active duty that put you into the JAG Corps. Most who still have the desire to be an attorney get out after their initial commitment and go to law school on their own.
