im a 2L at Albany. any questions - just ask.
The Marines are Marine Officers first and JAGs second, get it right . "The Best" depends on what you want. For me, the Chair Force is the bottom, but that is because I wanted to be a Marine and a leader first. However, in terms of standards of living, quality of life, etc.... The Air Force has it made.
With the Air Force it is much more likely that you are going to get to see your child's Birth, be home for her 16th birthday, etc.... With the Marine Corps its very likely that you will miss those things because you will be living in a tent in the Middle East advising a General on War Crimes or riding on a convoy that could likely get attacked. However, when all that is said and done you will have the pride of being a Marine.
If that pride doesn't mean anything to you (and to many it doesn't, so its not necessarily a bad thing, its just not for them) then choose a different service.
