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!
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.
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.
