I posted earlier about the snail mail regarding our intent to accept or reject our commission. Of course I opted to accept. Today we got email correspondence requesting information they need for the scrolling of our names for Congressional approval of our commissions. The person in charge of dealing with us is currently placing us in classes and we will start dealing with medical stuff in March.
What do you mean being place in classes? Shouldn't all Dec. applicants be in the same class (i.e., 192nd) in ~February 2014?
Are there some that could be in the 193rd in ~July 2014?
Here is an exact quote from the email "I am currently placing you in classes and do not have a list yet. I will have your class assignments ready for dissemination by mid-March." Beyond that, I am not privy to any additional info. I am going in right from law school and predict I'll probably be going in the Feb. class, but perhaps people w/law degree and bar acceptance could go earlier, and I guess it's possible we could go in July '14 as well. Surely, nothing is certain at this point. I will try to continue providing little updates as the info trickles in.
Applicants selected by an AD board are generally divided into separate JAOBC classes. Several factors influence JARO's decisions in assigning applicants to JAOBC classes. Applicants who are selected while in law school must pass the bar, receive medical clearance, and turn in certain required documentation before reporting to JAOBC. I think consideration is also given to the needs of USAR and Guard units -- their JAs attend the same training with AD JAs.
I applied in December 2011, was accepted off the alternate list in June 2012, and was assigned to the 191st JAOBC. The 191st JAOBC is scheduled to start on June 16, 2013 at Fort Benning.
I know several others who graduated law school around the same time I did and were assigned to the 190th JAOBC. At least one of these people took the bar in a state that posted bar results much earlier than my state did. At least two of these people completed internships with the Army JAGC and were "primary selects" from the AD board, not an alternate like I was. These points are probably factors that put the others higher on the Order of Merit List for assignment to a JAOBC class. But then again, I don't really know what goes on at JARO.
