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.

Indeed, spoken like a true jarhead.

1. the grace period will be 6-9 months after u graduate law school, depending on your lender.

2. hmm, this is tricky, your law school, mine did anyways last year when i started, refused to fill out the deferrment form for me until they got my loan money, which wasn't until July or August.

The rates are:

In-school, grace, and deferment status = 4.75%, up from 2.875%
Repayment status = 5.37%, up from 3.37%

Your law school's registrar and financial aid offices deal with this crap every year, so im sure they know. i would give them a call.

actually, now that i think about it, im sure you can consolidate before your deferrment is processed, and while you may lose your grace period, im sure you could, when you graduate law school, request a forbearance/another deferrment.

Again, call your lender, they'll know the deal. Also, which i forgot to say in my prior post, call your law school's financial aid office and ask about the losing grace period-consolidation question.

fill out an in-school deferrment form. then u dont have to pay them off until after u graduate law school. U dont lose your grace period either. If u want to consolidate them, do this AFTER your in-school deferrment has been processed, and your loans are actually in deferrment. If u consolidate them BEFORE you defer, then you lose your grace period. so once u graduate law school, you will automatically have to pay them off.

Call your lender, or go to their website. i think u can just print a deferrment form off a pdf file they should have on their site. Then, u have to give this to your law school's registrar's office, so they can verify that you are enrolled. I think they send it out to your lender then.

I was in the same boat as you, and had no idea. I just called my lender and they sorted it all out, told me what to do.

Good Luck!

when u write ur addendum about these, dont give excuses. yes, u are in a rare situation where actually ur reason seems justified, however, i wouldn't say, "i was standing up for my rights" or "curled into fetal position", rather explain the circumstances surrounding what happened. The thing is, u want the adcoms who read it, to come to the conclusion that you were standing up for your rights; don't just say it outright.
