Thread: Are there any current or former active duty JAGs on RPF?

    Are there any current or former active duty JAGs on RPF?

    I am currently in my second year of ROTC and planning to attend Law School. After completing this Spring semester, I will probably take two years off and complete MLSC during L2 and L3. I can get an ROTC scholarship, but it will add time to my active duty commitment. I am unsure if I will enjoy being a JAG or hate the entire experience. What was your experience as a JAG like?

    I've never been in the military, but I can tell you you should have nothing to do with the evil organization.

    It is an extremely selective program. Lack of jobs in general and a complete and utter over saturation of lawyers has driven a lot of attorneys to look at the JAG program. It is a pretty small program and some really good attorneys are competing for the few spots that are available. Your best bet is to try and gain admission to a law school that has a history of placing individuals into the JAG program and beginning to angle that way as soon as you step on campus for 1L. You're going to want to get accepted to law school first and foremost. Bone up on the LSAT; it's not fun.

    JAG is overly glamorized. In the Air Force, we had JAG (prosecution), but we also had the ADC (Area Defense Counsel). This is where I saw an obvious conflict of interest in the TV show JAG—the same department prosecuted and defended.

    I talked to some of the people at ROTC yesterday and they said everyone who has applied for active duty JAG Corps has been selected. From what I understand, it is very difficult to become a reserve JAG but easy to become an active duty JAG.

    They aren't recruiters. They are paid an hourly wage and have no reason to lie. I definately want to serve in the Army. Marines are just Green Berets who like cute uniforms *cough* GunnyFreedom *cough*

    I reserve a special place in the depth of my bowels for a fellow like you.


    edit: eduardo the Canadian/Mexican pervert took that as an anal sex desire.

    I apologize if anyone else misconstrued my remark. Well, except HB, I can't imagine what thoughts conjured up in his depraved mind.
