I don't think we get those until after we start training. Thats typically how the Army operates. Enlisted kids don't find out their assignments until the last few days before graduating Basic. Kids out of BOLC don't find out their assignments until they're most of the way through. If I remember correctly, you get a dream sheet during JAG school, and put down your top three choices. They consider that ( I don't know how much) and then make their decisions and get back to you. The CPTs I worked for this summer made it sound like all of that happened at JAG school, but who knows. Plus they like to know that you're actually going to be working, or theres a good chance that you will, before they fill their slots. They don't even know if most of us are medically qualified, can pass PT tests, are eligible for security clearances, etc. yet. Long story short, get used to not knowing where you're going to be until you're almost there. It will be your life for at least the next four years.
Nope. All the above is wrong.
You get your location list a month or two before you start OBC. Medical is done before commission. Official PT tests are done like a month into OBC. Security clearance issues are handled during OBC but started prior.
If you just got your AD acceptance letter and are still a 3L, search my posts for a timeline. Someone nice should post a summary of it.
