The growing number of veterans admitted to the Stanford Law School is the focus of the following Stanford Review article posted by the Huffington Post:

Due to the new Post 9/11 G.I. Bill, universities across the country are seeing an increase in veterans on their campuses. These campuses are consequently adapting to provide communities and resources for the veterans.

The effects of the bill have been pronounced at Stanford's graduate schools, which have seen their veteran populations expand significantly in the last year. The Stanford Law School Class of 2013 has about twice as many military veterans as did the class before it, an increase from four to eight in a class of only 170. Similar can be seen in the first-year class at the Graduate School of Business.
