I've noted the officer training begins within a couple weeks of when results get posted, and then again several months later (5-6). Would we have to ship off to training within days or plan our lives for several months?
For the Air Force:
I know I posted my exact timeline on this forum several years ago (2009 or so) and other JAGs have as well. As always, do your research on the forum before posting.
The answer depends on your status (3L or already a licensed attorney).
If you are a law student: there will be some lag time as you wait for your medical clearance through MEPS. Once you pass the bar, you will then take your oath, get an officer training class date, receive your orders, etc.
If you are already licensed: you will still have some lag time waiting for MEPS, your commissioning, orders, and waiting for a class date and assignment. In no universe would you be going to training within days or even weeks after you got accepted.
