0/1 for me as well. I'll be using the winter break to hopefully improve my application. I wish we had more direction our deficiencies though, bit hard to revise blind but looking forward to another chance at it all.

Guesses as to when AF DAP calls start to go out? Crossing my fingers for this week... unrealistic?

Hopefully this is the week for AF DAP. Does anyone know whether the board has met yet?

Board met last week.

Based on how quickly the Oct board results came out, it is possible results will drop for the Dec board this week. Keep in mind that all of the active duty officer assignments for summer 2013 are in the process of being worked, so this is not the only thing on JAX's plate. Both the officer assignments and DAP selections are approved by TJAG, so that is a lot of paper that has to get staffed up to a three star that is working any number of high level issues.

Thanks for that!! I was just about to ask Commissioner Gordon to light up the Bateman signal but you already replied. And congratulations to all of the Army Interns and Navy selectees.

Has anyone here participated in the Army internship?

I was selected for the 2L internship this year and I'm trying to figure out which location I should request. Are there any locations that people particularly enjoyed and are the overseas locations financially feasible?

Thanks! Congrats to the other interns and good luck to all those still waiting!

Another way of figuring out which base(s) you would like to request is what kind of work is done at the base and what kind of recommendations you can get while there. A classmate made her decision solely about this, and it certainly paid off for her. I'm not of much help with which bases will actually do this for you. It's just that one of the top reasons for doing the internship is to set yourself up for selection later. That being said, there's nothing wrong with accomplishing your goals in great and/or cheap locations.

I realize this doesn't add much to the body of information regarding Army AD decisions, but my FSO (who is typically very candid) cautioned against reading too much into the intern results dropping last week. He said AD results could come anytime now, but that his guess is that it will still be early in January. With the possibility of AF DA results this week or next, I don't mind having a little gap. Good luck all.

No experience with the internship but I'm active duty. The nicest locations are going to be those in the Maryland/Virginia area, as well as Carson, Lewis, Sam Houston, and Bragg. But if you're looking for good legal experience you might want somewhere with more UCMJ issues like Polk or Hood.

For the Navy applicants whose statuses still read "Pending," I feel like this is the Navy/Law version of Panda Watch.

If there are any FLEP applicants looking, a little birdie told me they will be posted on JAGCNET either this afternoon or tomorrow morning.

Do your internship at a big base. You'll get a good amount of military experience to talk about in your AD application personal statement. You'll also likely get better recommendations from around the office. You need O4 and up recommendations. O3s just won't cut it. At smaller bases, they're mostly O3s.

Hawaii is a good pick. It's a great location and a high speed base. Carson, Lewis, and Stewart are also picks in a good location. Stewart is near Savannah. Don't do Germany. It's not an internship experience that will give you a good idea of how the Army works.

I don't know if this applies to anyone currently waiting for results, but I thought I'd post it here just in case:

A friend of mine was a Naval Flight Officer and wanted to transition to JAG via the LEP program. She was initially rejected, but when she called the LEP coordinator and let them know that she had been offered a full-ride scholarship to one of the schools she'd applied to, they went ahead and admitted her to the LEP program anyway. I think they reconsidered once they knew that it wouldn't cost the Navy anything to admit her except for the PCS move from where she was currently stationed to where she'd be going to school.
