I graduated law school in December and was recently admitted to practice. My enlistment in the AF Reserve is ending soon, so I think I'll get out to spend some time focusing on my civilian career before giving it another try. Probably in the Reserve.
Thank you to those of you who have provided advice on this forum. Congratulations to those of you who made it this year. And good luck to those of you still applying.
Sorry to hear that Rambo. I understand it is more difficult for Navy DA applicants than SP applicants. There are more ways to serve other than jag of course, but still if you want jag I think you should keep at it with the Navy. They are growing apparently and application are down. Keep your head up brother it'll work out.
Any interest in Coast Guard, Marines, or the Army?
Technically I was an SP, since when I applied I had not taken the bar yet. I'm not sure whether they grouped me with the DA's or the 3L's though since I'm pretty much ready to immediately enter active duty (security clearance and all).
I'll likely be giving it a few more tries down the road. In the meantime, I'm going to get some experience being a civilian attorney. I don't think I'll leave my employer without putting in a full year at least. It just seems like bad form.
I'm still (relatively) young so a commission is possible for a few more years. I'll likely be trying with all of the branches. It would seem wasteful to not use all the knowledge I gained from this thread. The Coast Guard seems especially interesting.
