I cannot say about the other services but at least with the Air Force, there are no traditional recruiters. As noted throughout this thread, JAX is the Gatekeeper/Keymaster (depending on your Ghostbusters preferance) for JA recruiting. Air Force JAG accessions are not run through the Air Force Personnel Center and the traditional recruiters have absolutely zero idea how we operate. Based on my memory of applying as an intern with the Army, their system of Field Screening Officers (FSO) is similarly unique.
I'm not going to quibble in regard to the information you are seeking being on this board or not. That said, in that some of us have been posting here for four years, there are not many of the "tell me about JAG" questions that have not been covered in detail from multiple services.
And as Shock correctly noted, all the services have their own JAG specific recruiting sites. For example:
You'll see just about every possible applicant category on there. Your ROTC confusion should be cleared up with a few minutes exploring this site.
The regulars on this thread have put in a ton of time and knowledge into this board. There is a general expectation that folks will do their homework first - a good lesson for anyone aspiring to earn their officer's commission. So pardon the snark. That said, I will not apologize for referencing possibly the greatest pop song of the 21st century.
