JAG

Postby hoogs23 » Mon Oct 15, 2012 10:02 pm

Does anyone know if you join the JAG Corps for any branch, if they offer tuition assistance or under a LRAP program?

The Army JAG pays up to $60k over three years. This is entirely separate from LRAP I think.

It's a beast of a thread now, but it contains most everything you could want to know.

Makes you wish there was a "Show All Pages" function on the forums because it really is full of excellent information, you just have to dig through it.

As for law schools, I'd think it's the same as every other job--go to the best one available.

Apparently school has little to no bearing for JAG. Even Cooley is supposedly one of the higher represented schools in JAG according to the military thread. All and any ABA accredited law school is fair game basically, although AF is supposedly pickier. JAG takes a whole person approach. I would go to a school that combines a balance of rep and less debt. You may want to consider your school prestige for when/if you exit the JAG after the required period. But even then it might not matter that much since you have actual years of practice under your belt. Who knows.
