Financial Aid / 2L scholarships
« on: May 12, 2009, 02:19:43 PM »
So here is the situation.  Due to life and financial situations I was not able to get my application in until pretty much the last moment.  So funding pretty much went out to everyone and I was left with just loan offers since my app wasn't early enough. 

Say I take the loans for this year, since I don't really have another choice.  Does this screw up my possibilities for funding in 2L and 3L? 

Current Law Students / JAG questions
« on: April 28, 2009, 12:02:44 PM »
I have been considering the possibility of JAG, but am not sure if it would be the right choice, so I thought I would seek out some insight. 

Firstly, from my reading it seems that JAG mostly deals with criminal cases.  I know that this is a pretty big thing and needed on bases, but are you pretty much locked into doing criminal law?  For the most part, I am not really into this part of the law.

Secondly, I am married and very supportive of my wife's education goals.  Entering into active duty and moving around seems like that would squash any aspirations she might have, is this the case or are there ways in which she would be able to pursue her higher education while I serve?

These are my main questions, I have an idea of what the life might be like and I do also know that different branches of the military have different policies.  If anyone has any good information I would appreciate it, or if I need to be more direct and clear, please let me know.
