I apologize ahead of time, as I know that this has been posted and answered several times on this board. But I wanted to throw out my own thread to give my personal background.
I don't go to a particularly good law school (tier IV...which is why I'm sporting the anonymous post
). My grades place me in the middle of the class, primarily because I've spent a majority of my time trying to get the best grades in my writing classes, as that is one of my passions (In other words, I spend most of my time researching and making my papers as perfect as possible, to the detriment of my doctrinal courses...I hardly read or did any work on classes...just enough to get by if I was called on in class, then crammed for finals). My grades in my legal writing/appellate advocacy classes are very good. Also, my law school has a nasty curve, so my grades look lower than what they would be if I attended a different law school.
I am on my school's national Moot Court Team and served as the primary brief-writer (I did the oral arguments as well though), I'm on the Moot Court Honors Board, in Phi Delta Phi, and I'm a teacher's assistant for Appellate Advocacy as well. I have completed a ton of community service during my time in law school, as well as undergrad.
I went to undergrad at a very good Jesuit college, and had a decent GPA.
I have family members who were in the Air Force (don't know if they pay any attention to this)
I am physically fit (I wouldn't anticipate having any sort of problems with the fitness tests)
As far as the letters of recommendation, I've got two law professors who can attest to my writing abilities and my work ethic, and I was also thinking of asking a Jesuit from undergrad with whom I am very close to attest to morality and things of that sort. Also was considering maybe asking some former coaches (I was captain of my high school football team, played college ball...so they can attest to leadership etc.)
Also, I've never taken any drugs I wasn't prescribed. EVER. haha
I know it's hard, but I'm relatively unfamiliar with the process aside from what I've read in the sources that I've been able to find. I really don't want any smart a$$ remarks, so if you don't have any useful feedback, then please don't leave a comment. If you don't think I have a chance, then by all means tell me...but I know how some of the people on here are with the sarcasm/insults etc.
But I would really love to get into the Air Force Jag. My fiance is all for it, and it seems like a perfect fit for me, personally. I'm going to go all out in trying to get in, but I've convinced myself that I don't really stand much of a chance given the law school I attend and being in the middle of the class.
