make no mistake about it, i am definitely not scared of being deployed! i just wanted to at least finish law school...then if i get deployed, semper fi babywell, my reasoning on why to join now was because i have a year to kill before i go since im taking a defferment. also, i could use the extra money, get the training out of the way, etc.i was hoping for a 3 year deployment waiver...i am definitely going to look into jag post law school start. i thought maybe by being a reservist before i applied it would help me with the competition at least. the coast guard, i didnt mean they NEVER get deployed, but i just thought it would be safer bet to stay inland till at least im done. my theory rested simply on i have a year before i actually go now, so i just wanted to get it out of the way.i want to be a jag really bad. i went to a military college and i refused my commission at the time because i had a very lucrative business offer which i took and i dont regret it. but i want to serve and i want to put some time in, and whether im a jag or not i still want to join the marines for the reserves...but i definitely want to finish law school in the first 3 years with no intermissions.
