military make me happy

Her law degree would actually get Lucy promoted faster initially (though 6 years older and a Major still works perfectly). Assuming she went to law school straight after West Point, she'd go into the Army as a First Lieutenant (O-2), then become a Captain (O-3) only 6 months later. Then it's 4 years min time in grade, 7 max, to become a Major. Then there's 4 -7 TIG again to become a Lt Col.

See, this is why I said I don’t actually know how it works, because I clearly very much do not.

I haven’t actually thought of when she goes to Harvard, if it’s right after West Point or a few years later.  Again, I don’t actually know the policy on that.

So, assuming she went right after West Point, at 22, she would graduate from Harvard at 25.

Make Captain at 25/26

Major between 29-32

Lt Col between 33-39

…if my math is right

Sweet

Thank you so much
