An Armen of One!

I can honestly summarize my law school experience thus far as being like in the Army Reserves: I've only put in one weekend a month and two weeks a year of intense studying. [I really don't need some stressed out psychopath to comment anonymously while freaking out in the library about how I shouldn't post stuff like this during finals. I only write to point out all the time that I waste during the semester watching TV or mindlessly IMing. Though I leave it up to the readers to figure out where journal hours fit in all this.]

Armen, you definitely have one of the leading military fetishes at Boalt. Did you interview with JAG?

Would that service in the national guard was as 'burdensome' as your law school experience!! With the Iraqathon soon entering its third expensive year, 129,000 Army National Guard and Army Reserve troops are in Iraq defending a flawed American policy. Reservists account for 36 percent of the > 2,000 deaths there. I'll tell you what - that sounds almost as bad as law school (mon dieu!)

How many JAG lawyers have been killed or injured? I would ask about JAG summer interns as well but I think we can safely assume they get the same bait-and-switch that summers at big law firms get--a not-so-bad summer and then when you accept, it's off to Iraq!
If any Boalties actually interviewed with or accepted jobs with JAG, please comment.

Armen,

Perhaps you should refresh yourself with the new slogan of the Army Reserve:

"One weekend a month my ass!!!"

(Seen scrawled on numerous truck bumpers and latrine walls in Iraq)

Thanks Captain. I saw this a couple of years ago. I can only imagine it's gotten worse. I hope augurs well for the election with you and those you command.
