Does anyone have any information about obtaining medical waivers? How long does it take? How was the experience? Was it difficult or easy? Who actually decides to grant the waivers? Could anyone describe the process?

Thanks!

Anybody hear anything about the Army Active Duty Alternate list? The letter said offers would start today? Any word/idea?

Today I received an email from CPT W; she wants to schedule a teleconference to discuss alternates' status. I'm taking this as bad news.

Nice work. Current Navy JAG here, let me know if you have any questions.

Myself as well--though I'm a 2L so I don't think the program is 1L only. But still, congrats, see you this summer? Haha.

Congrats to all three of you! Way to go TLSers.

Let's hope we can score some AF internships, too, although me saying that may be somewhat self-serving. :)

Yay for TLSers. I partially credit all of the great info in this thread with my acceptance. ;)

Anyway, I'm still waiting to hear on the Air Force internship too. That one is paid, so I would probably take it over the Navy unless there are some other compelling circumstances. I just hope I hear back before my deadline to accept the Navy position. If I don't, an AF officer friend recommended I give the JAG line a call, tell them of my situation, and see if they can do anything about my app before the deadline to accept. Guessing they won't be able to, but it doesn't hurt to try.

Again, good luck to everyone!

Yea, I hear you. I actually would prefer to stay in St. Louis and do the local internship here because my school has a summer stipend program. But we'll see. It'd probably look better on a resume to go to DC for the official internship to put on my JAG apps, I'd imagine.

Good luck to everyone waiting!

Got my rejection letter from the AF OYCP. Any suggestions on how to make my application more competitive for the DAP?

Speaking of 11-Bs reclassing (from a couple pages ago)...

I graduated law school back in 2008, spent three years practicing law, and then decided that I wanted a break from the terrible job market and glut of new lawyers on the market overcrowding all the entry level positions. I enlisted 11-B and I'm now at Fort Drum. I plan to do a tour, serve my country, max my PT score, and then apply to JAG. Would I be competitive for Army Jag with a 3.2 college/law school GPA and the above resume?

We'll need more information on your stats, your SJA interview, and everything else if you are looking for input.

To improve myself for my OYCP app next year, I'm going to:

1) Start volunteering at a wounded veterans employment assistance organization
2) Start doing mock trial/moot court
3) Spend more time on my motivational statement

And then just keep doing well GPA-wise.

Any USAR JAG selects from the most recent board? I got the good news, but I'm still in the pipeline for the April USAF board. Any other Army Reserve selectees want to compare notes?

I was offered a position as an intern for the AF JAG! They gave me a couple of days to decide which base I wanted to work at. Does anyone know what the benefits or downsides are working at HQ at Andrews vs. being stationed at a regular base?

I go to Albany Law. I have decent grades and a lot of extra-curricular/volunteer experience as well as a variety of legal internships. I am currently studying international law in London and doing a legal internship with a Barrister. I will be taking a summer class to help improve my GPA and doing a government field placement during the summer. I will be working at the US Attorney's Office for both the fall and spring next year. My SJA interview went well. He responded that he was surprised that I was not selected for OYCP. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Congrats, Euro! Just wondering, when exactly did you hear? I'm hoping to hear sometime today. Thanks!
