Oh, and Boston University.
Is this for schools that put it out there on their own (like Penn) or schools that seem to be keeping it on the D/L? I ask because if it's the case that this or that school doesn't want everyone knowing they are willing to do this, I'd rather not put it out there incase too many people start asking and then maybe they become more stringent with it in the future or something.
But for the first case:
The Coast Guard has good information, but their legal department is a bit different from the other departments.
Being a JAG is a great job; however, if you're in the Army/Navy, whatever, you really CAN die on the job... although it's not at all likely.
I want to be a Coast Guard lawyer, and I'm very excited about it.
Keep in mind that your starting salary would hover around $50,000 and max out probably around $110-120,000 if you stick with it. You also get immediate experience whereas you probably wouldn't in private practice with firms. Call a recruiter or something. The more I learn about Coast Guard, the more I want to do it.
Now that it has been shortened to the summer wait list...wondering how many folks are planning on holding on until the end (after orientation), who has been accepted recently, and who has withdrawn for more stable pastures.
