Per the U.S. Army JAG Corps recruiting Twitter account (20 minutes ago):

"We hope to post results for our Active Duty, Reserve, and Internship selection boards late next week. Be sure to check back for updates!"

Yeah they just posted the same thing on their Facebook. We'll probably hear from them Thursday or Friday of next week.

Nothing here. I've emailed and I left a voice mail on Wednesday. No response to either.

I'm interested in applying for the Army Reserve JAG next year. How competitive is the selection process compared to the active duty selection?

Can't really put a number on it but my sense is less competitive than the Active board but still not a gimme. A large part of it, at least the interview, is showing that you've done your research and understand the Army Reserve. Like, you actually have a sense of what you're committing to and what it's all about.

Congrats on getting a call from the Army JAG! Do you think calls will be made for reserve applicants or just active-duty applicants who are selected? Thanks!

If we didn't get the call for army jag at this point, does that mean we weren't professionally recommended for active duty?

Good question. I hope the answer is "no" (I'm still waiting on a call myself), and I'll note three things while I'm here:

1. Army doesn't traditionally call; at least that's what my read of this forum shows.
2. There's only been one non-Anon post about calls, and it was generic ("FYI AF calls coming out today") - no one using their own name has confirmed any call.
3. Even if Army is calling, and they are calling today, there were 179 folks on last years' AD primary selection list (i.e. in addition to alternates) and it may take JARO staff some time to make all of the calls.

I'm also suspicious that any calls for Army have gone out - I have been told in the past that no one outside of the board sees the list before it is published. Also, If it helps, the year I got selected I did not receive a call - further the Army is on holiday schedule this week, so if calls actually are going out, it is hit and miss which recruiters are actually in the office to make the calls.

Call came from my FSO, not JARO.

A good classmate and friend of mine got a call today from Army, primary, and I know that probably doesn't help your impressive amount of suspicion any. But it is true.
