No, that's perfectly fine and everyone will understand that at the end of the day you need to get a job and make a living (and how the job market sucks right now). Just be ready to answer why you're interested in that certain branch over others, when you're at that particular interview.
I've applied to all and I ended up getting into one. Many, if not all, people do that. Maximize your chances.
+1 to this. My interviewers took it as a given that I would be applying to the other services. It's really not that different from applying to firms and other types of jobs.
By the way, does anyone have a sense of how long it actually takes for Navy JAG Corps results to be posted? I know it says within 2 months on the website, but I'm hoping (perhaps foolishly) that it'll actually be quicker in practice. I do recall that my interviewer said something about Thanksgiving though, so maybe that's the best I can hope for...
