Also waiting on orders for Sept. 11.

I want to get the USAA career starter loan, but can't until we get orders! Ugh!


And for preparation, just going to the gym, running, lifting, etc. What about you?

I emailed USAA yesterday actually haha I am supposed to speak with them tomorrow but betting I will need orders as well. I am doing the same. I researched some reading materials and am reading "Newly Commissioned Naval Officer's Guide." I have bought most of the items needed/suggested for ODS as well. I have to call Millington tomorrow so I will ask about orders.

I've researched it a bit. Here is the link from the Navy with stuff to bring and then I found some blogs from people who went previously.

It has been pretty helpful. Expensive, but helpful.

I just called Millington. They are having a meeting this afternoon and are going over everything. Hopefully, that means orders soon.

As of 11ish central, I received my orders by email to the 11 Sept ODS and 17 Oct NJS class.

Also, like other folks, I had my detailing conversation a couple weeks ago. We got our first choice and will have to brush up on some chopstick skills because we're going to Yokuska, Japan :) Incredibly excited, as an international tour at some point in my time in JAG was one big draw :)

Wow congrats guys! When did you all fill out your dream sheets? I am commissioning shortly (at the beginning of my 3L year) and I'm just curious of the timeline.

I haven't received anything yet either. Although I just signed so mine will probably come out last. Thank you for the update as well. Congrats!

Quick question, what do your travel arrangements look like? Are you flying in September 10 or 11 and do you stay those 3 days until NJS or do you fly back home and then fly back again? Also, how does thanksgiving and Christmas work with NJS during it?

You probably won't get the dream sheet for awhile. I commissioned between 2L and 3L year, and I didn't get a dream sheet until I had already graduated; about 2 months ago or so.

I see, thanks!

And what about what NJS you go to? I assume that is contingent on when they expect you to have your bar results?

Yes, ODS and NJS class assignments are based on when you get your bar results.

My orders came in by email at about 0900 central.

For everyone with their tentative duty station, here is a link that helps calculate what you can expect for BAH at your location. It's more than I expected.

I haven't gotten ODS orders yet. But apparently the orders for NJS, and our duty stations have been completed, I got a copy of those! Which is good enough for the USAA career started loan!

They didn't send them, I had to call and ask. I got the orders from Shannon. Maybe call tomorrow and see if they have yours too?

You're telling me! Things were getting pretty lean in the funds dept. since school ended. lol Once you get the orders they process the loan and you will get the loan proceeds in about two days!
