Which Army program offers loan repayment?  That's pretty nice.  The military only offers that stuff in areas they have trouble staffing and to the best of my knowledge,  they don't have a problem staffing professional and admin positions, which of course includes JAG lawyers.  Very interesting, regardless.

You've got a good handle on this.  In the past, it was hard to fill JAG vacancies, but they're pretty competitive these days.  However, it's not unusual to get loan forgiveness on various programs.  Worth taking a good look at.

Also, for those not sure they want to make a full-time committment, national guard and reserves sometimes offer loan forgiveness and signing bonuses.  Just keep in mind that national guard and reserves are two different programs with two different sets of recruiters.

When I was in the army a few years ago, people with a BA or more would go in as an E-4 instead of officer to get it ALL paid off. Just do a tour, get out as a Sgt, reup if you want to be an officer, take lifetime veterans benefits either way if not.

Not hard guys.

The GI Bill does not apply 1) retroactively and 2) to professional schools.

While you are correct that the GI Bill would not pay retroactively. If, on the other hand, you go into the service and do your time, you can then use your GI Bill towards graduate programs to include Law or Business.

More to the military than just the GI bills guys. I don't know how long you've been out, but here is some info from the horse's mouth.

When it doubt, ask the source. It always amazes me how little "lawstudents" and "lawyers" know about simple research.

I never said that the GI Bill was the only source available, but in most cases it is the centerpiece of the educational benefits available to veterans, also military.com is not what I would consider as "from the horse's mouth."

Just because idiots exist within the field of law, does not mean this is the level that one should aspire to.
