General Board / Re: JAG - Info wanted!
« on: October 04, 2008, 12:19:21 AM »
I know the Army makes you do boot camp, while the AF has a more relaxed office training.

Eh, I'm not sure you can call what the Army does "boot camp." There is a 12 day orientation, JAG School, and two months of "Officer's Basic."

And you'll probably get something more or less like that everywhere.

Does JAG do OCS in the AF?

Each branch is slightly different in the training for JAG. I think the Army and Navy are pretty similar. The Marines put you through a full TBS program. I think the Air Force is somewhere in between, but I'm not sure.

No matter what, there is going to be an indoctrination course and "JAG School" somewhere in the program.

I've looked at all the websites. They are helpful, but kind of vague at the same time.

Why Army over AF?

More respectable branch.

Completely retarded advice.

For general quality of life, you want the AF if you want something like a normal life. But JAG is also a bit different from the usual military experience from what I gather.

Now THAT is retarded advice. Who joins the military to have a NORMAL life?

Law School Applications / Re: Emory versus Vandy in Atlanta placement
« on: October 02, 2008, 12:46:20 PM »
I have been searching the NALP Directory and realized that Atlanta is really a hotbed for big law firms.  I also found that nearly every single firm recruits at both Vanderbilt and Emory, so my question is this: In Atlanta, which JD would be better to have, Vandy or Emory?  Vandy has a little bit more prestige as well as a slightly higher US News Ranking, but Emory is in Atlanta, which has to mean something.  Any thoughts?

If you are somewhat competent and don't have extensive job history outside of the southeast, you will get plenty of interviews with ATL firms from Emory. I'm sure Vandy is good as well.

I see you got into Duke though. Duke is better. Go there. You will get a job in Atlanta from Duke.

I guess it would be helpful to have more specific questions. I'm not a JAG guy, but I've looked into it, so I know a little. Some people here know a lot more.

So I'm considering doing JAG. Leaning towards AF, but that's based on an hour or two's research. I'm looking for any and all information/advice on the subject. Please chime in.

Each branch's JAG Corps has its own website. They all have recruiting info, etc.

I would guess that googling for that would be quicker and more reliable than this.

Nonetheless, AF is a bad choice. You want to go Army.

Transferring / Re: how hard is it to visit?

I thought the Emory didn't allow students to visit elsewhere?

Or was the student visiting Emory?

Law Firms / Re: Are NY firms going to $190K

Hoboken is just a ferry ride away from downtown manhattan and it is cheaper and more convenient that many parts of Manhattan, and certainly better than the other boroughs.

In what sense?  You are, of course, entitled to your opinion, but this language is fairly strong.  I happen to like Brooklyn much more than any part of Jersey City or Hoboken I've ever been.  (And I was once in a band that played an ode to Hoboken from back when Maxwell's used to have good shows.)

I guess it depends where you are commuting to. But my comment is not related to likeability, i was commenting on convenience and price.

It takes much longer to get to downtown Manhattan from some parts of Queens, for example, than it would from NJ.
