Yup, mine's been changed too. "Not Professionally Recommended."

Third application here too :( . Looks like I am on to round 4.

I checked this morning and it said Not Professionally Recommended. I received an email this afternoon saying that I have been Professionally Recommended and my status on the JAG status checked changed! I am certain that I didn't misread it this morning. I don't know what happened, but I'll take it.

Congrats!

Sorry to the rest of the Navy folk :(

If it makes you feel any better, us AF hopefuls are still waiting (though some calls have already gone out)... :(

Also not recommended, thought my 1L Navy JAG Internship might have helped, but apparently not. First rejection for me.

Got my AF letter today. That makes me a combined 0-4 on my JAG applications (between AF and Navy). Let's see what Army has to say.

Will be filing my letter of reconsideration. Hopefully a semester's worth of strong grades will be worth looking at :(

Best of luck to everyone else out there!

Anyone who was professionally recommended mind posting their stats? LS GPA, vet status, LS approximate tier, etc? I gave up hope on Navy after a couple times and still waiting to hear from Army but hey...

Will the Army call if you are selected or just post the results on the website? Also, since they cancelled the Spring board, are they picking more people for this board?

They called to let the most recent reserve board selectees know, but I think that might just have been because JARO was down and it was the only way to notify people. I never got a clear answer on whether they call active duty slectees when I was applying last year.

Good luck and don't give up hope. I was also 0-4 on Army and Navy active duty applications and finally got selected for Army Reserve this summer.

Thanks everyone for posting your stats. I'm prior enlisted starting LS in the fall. I'm shooting for Navy Jag and it's great to see what I need to shoot for. Keep the stats coming if possible!
