I have applied for 2L internships with both the Air Force and Army, and have began my application for the Navy Feb. Board. I tried to look into applying to be an actual JAG in the Air Force, but it looks like the program for 2Ls required me to do an interview in the fall semester of my 2L year. So my question is really just to clarify with those that know info about the Army and Air Force application processes. It looks like I will have to wait until my third year to apply to the Air Force, but there are three boards that meet in that year, thus three chances to get in, correct? Also, it looks like the Army meets twice a year, and I don't know if I have found a source that has anything a 2L can do to apply. Am I correct in saying that I will not be able to apply anything Army JAG related until third year?
Thanks for all the great info already and any future responses.
I wouldn't count on getting student loan repayment from the Army. It looks like the program is currently under review, due to budget restrictions. --LinkRemoved--
But keep in mind the federal program that offers 10 year loan forgiveness for military members, if you're wanting to make a career out of JAG service.
Do you get the tax bomb with the 10 year discharge for public service? I forget...
