Hi guys, sorry to bring this up again. I know there were a few of us here who interviewed with the Army Corps of Engineers Honors Program and with the General Counsel's honors program, and I was wondering if anyone heard anything back yet?


I'm waiting to hear back from the General Counsel's honors program. My understanding is they would make their decision early this week. Today is the first day I expected to hear anything since yesterday was a holiday.


Got a call from the OGC Honors Program; accepted the offer.


Hey guys, I just got a call too. Looks like they're taking more than one person.

Hey everyone, I'm an Active Army selectee with what I think may be a common question. Is it OK to look for and entertain offers of employment after submitting the Statement of Intent? I'm just thinking about the gap between graduation and the start of training, or looking to the aforementioned scenario where one has to wait two years after dealing with the waiver process. Thanks for any feedback.

I'm still waiting for my information to be sent over so I can start the DODMERB stuff online.

I don't know why it's taking so long

Hey, all. I have a quick question -- I was accepted into Army J.A.G. and just received a list of potential bases for active duty. Are there any advantages/disadvantages for bigger/smaller/international bases or certain locations? (i.e., would you get more experience at a bigger/smaller base, somewhere overseas, etc.). I would appreciate any information that anyone has. Thanks!

Anyone heading to March COT that has not received their base assignment? Or can anyone offer some advice on the process?

It is pretty late and I am trying to figure when I will know which base after COT and when I will be moving.

Thanks

Do you know anything about the process? I.e., when we should hear? what we need to do for that before COT?

I haven't heard anything, but you can check this out: http://www.au.af.mil/au/holmcenter/OTS/ ... orting.asp

Not sure how much of that we can do without a point of contact though.

Mine does too but it says you have to bring a packet with you and part of the packet is the JARO OPAT memo.

Does yours say that?

Hi everyone,

Few questions regarding the JAG route (aiming Army/Navy). How much weight is given to your school's pretige or ranking? Clearly grades matter, but is there weight given to T1's over T2's for example? Also, if my path is the JAG route does it really matter what location I go to school? I would make sure I was okay ending up there just in case things didn't work out. Lastly, are my chances greatly increased with 12 years prior service and a stellar record? (NCO/Special Operations)

Any advice/help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Anybody heard back from AF JAG since the Dec board? I got the last email saying that there is a delay and they are working on to forward the process but I haven't heard anything back since. I haven't even done the medical interview yet.

It a long process especially if you are a 3l. I was selected Dec 2015 as a 3l and was just finally cleared medically. Just look over the sheet and everything you check yes to, get those medical records now. That will at least help you speed up the process while you are waiting for a response.

Did you need any waivers? If so, what is the process like and how long did it take you? Lastly, do you know when you will start COT?

I actually did need a waiver, but I think my process was different. I was dq'd after medical records were sent, but MEPs still allowed me to take the physical. I took the physical and was still told I was dq'd and had to go through the surgeon generals office. But after MEPs I received the waiver in 5 days. And I'm off to March COT
