Has anyone gotten results if whether they were accepted for the fall 2017 board? I know the results will be out around dec 9-10, but I wanted to know if we should be expecting an email or phone call before then if there is a chance of selection?

They seem to hold strongly to their 10-week until results window. I’d imagine next Friday calls will come out but who knows.

Applicants who are PROREC'd will receive a phone call, and results for all applicants will be updated on the online application website shortly thereafter. Once that is done, an announcement will be posted on the Navy JAGC Facebook page that results are available.

On my application portal for the status of my application it says "no professionally recommended." That must mean I didn't get it, right? I guess the results of those who did not get recommended are out pretty early.

Question for those of you that are already active duty...prior to ODS/NJS do we have to go through another medical clearance/physical of any sort? Or do we just show up at ODS good to go (or do we have medical stuff at ODS?)...worried about having to go through the whole waiver process again...Also, when do we have to do our first PFA?

Once you're at ODS the assumption is you're medically good to go. You're not going to have go through another full blown physical/screening/waiver. There's no point in giving you a waiver to commission only to do the same process again at ODS. That said, they will draw blood again and do labs along with a basic physical to make sure you're okay to participate in PT.

Your first PFA is the first week. You'll do height/weight a few days after arriving, and then do the PRT on Friday. You'll likely do them every Friday, but only the last one is an actual PRT. The first four are "mock" PRTs: you do them to track your progress, but only the last one actually counts for official purposes.

PT at ODS is not hard or anything provided you show up in halfway decent shape/not fat. You don't need to be a hardcore athlete by any means. Just make sure you're working out 2-3 times a week and you'll be more than adequately prepared.

Any chance the status change was a mistake/glitch?

I doubt it because I know people who got selected already.

Dinged for the first time. Got three more chances before graduation, so not terribly disappointed. Here's to the spring!

My first TLS post ever in ~3 years, because I've been lurking on/benefitting from this thread forever - thank you so much to everyone, and hope this is helpful to others! My stats:

PR'd 2L Fall 2017 SP, no applications to other branches
175 LSAT
Median at T14
3.8 GPA from Top 20 undergrad
1L Navy JAG summer internship
Exec position on 2 secondary journals
Exec position in 1 student org
Veterans clinic + RA for clinical prof
2 years WE prior to law school
3 LORs: 1 prof, 2 from supervisors (attorneys) at pre-law school job
I thought my interview went well
And I speak a critical language? Not sure whether/how that factored in
