Current Law Students / Re: How competitive is the JAG Corps?
« on: March 01, 2006, 06:07:19 AM »
Bro, I have been to OCS so don't sit here and tell me how it works.  Before leaving for OCS I had the luxury of talking to a handful of JAGs.  A nice percentage of them had trigger time.  JAGs do go on convoys.  Marine officers are Rifle Platoon Commanders first, JAGs second.  They emphasized that for all MOS's at OCS.  They don't send every officer through OCS and TBS (basic infantry training for officers) for nothing before sending them on to their follow on schools.

Will a JAG be leading men into battle?  Odds are, no.  Will he be along and take an active officer role IN the battle?  It is likely.  Convoys are regularly attacked.  JAGs are often part of these convoys.  Furthermore, Marine Officers are expected to have the ability to lead in battle IF necessary.  That is exclusive to the Marine Corps and what drew me to it.

Not sure if you are prior service or what but considering I have gone down the OCS route and you haven't, quit talking where you don't know what you are saying.

You are an idiot. I suggest you read the post you are criticizing before writing a dumba$$ response. haha, typical jarhead.

i just had an informational interview with an air force JAG. what Jacy said is pretty on point. It is very competative, although grades are not everything. They like moot court, journal, etc. If ur grades aren't great, and cant be on a journal, or do moot court, be involved! get a firm job during the year, do a clinic at ur school, etc. They want people who are go-getters! I thought this was odd, but the air force JAG, also requires you to hand in a copy of your LSDAS report with your LSAT score. Finally, I do not think the JAG corps is concerned at all, if you did not do a summer internship with them. They want people who want to serve. who want to do public service. and who want to be in the courtroom. If u cant get an intern with any of the JAGs, do a DA's internship, a Public Defender's internship, etc. Most of the info. I have is air force specific, although im sure, generally, this info applies to all services.

im sure this has been said on this thread somewhere but -

HOLY SHEET ALOHA!! HOW ARE YOU SO IGNORANT AND BLIND?!?!?! if you go to an online law school you are cheating yourself out of a wonderful experience. The thing about law school is, it doesn't teach you how to BE a lawyer. It teaches you how to THINK like a lawyer. When you get out of school, then you learn the law. The law that we learn in law school is a generalized law, taken from all juridictions. The socratic method only reinforces this concept of thinking like a lawyer. By going to an online law school, you are robbing yourself of something valuable. what about oral arguments? Moot court? All things that are just not feasible with an online law school. By not participating in these, you are not only cheating yourself, but your prospective clients as well.

I'm sure this is hard to take, as i can tell from your demeanor on here, you think you know everything. But trust me, being a lawyer is more than being able to draft motions, complaints, answers, etc. Who cares if the format is correct(which is what we dont learn in law school), if the actual substance is a pile of cow dung. Further, law school also teaches how to build legal arguments, something that is begun by reading/briefing cases, but is mastered in the classroom.

I guess an online law school can get away with a decent legal writing course - as you could email your work, to get comments and a grade back - but beyond that, an online property or contracts course?? I dunno, i wouldn't want to work with anyone who hasn't gone through and completed what I've been through.

wow - u are an arrogant prick. It seriously has gotta be awful walking around life having the issues you have. Your posts say a lot about you. nobody cares how much you make, what you did in the military, or how much your pension is. people are giving you constructive criticism(sp?), advice, etc. and you go off like a bat outta hell, ranting and raving about your accomplishments.

wow, i really do not like people like you.
