This thread is a week or so old, but I'm a Marine officer on a JA contract and I'm willing to answer questions. I attended OCS last summer between my 2L and 3L year, graduated and commissioned in August. I'm studying for the bar now, and after that I will hopefully go on temporary orders (if there's funding) until TBS. If you are thinking about USMC in any capacity, law, air or ground, I highly recommend going the PLC route. OCC is stupid competitive right now (in fact there were no OCC Air slots for this summer), and PLC is no joke either because the USMC has met its end strength goal of 202,000. There are more candidates right now than slots available. If you want accurate information on what the process and OCS are like, I can help you. I have several friends who are currently active duty JAs as well so if you have questions about active duty service I may be able to help as well.
