I'm a college sophomore enrolled in a national guard SMP program within my state. I'm not committed to serving with the Guard since I haven't taken the Guard's 100 percent scholarship and I still plan on competing for active duty. I would love to go JAG corps but I know how incredibly competitive it is to do that in an active duty slot. My question is this; if I commit to the Guard and decide to become a Guard officer, will the National Guard allow me to go to law school (assuming I am accepted to a solid law school) and help me financially? Getting a JD is a priority for me for both my service and post-service career so I'd really like to go to law school and serve my country at the same time. Will going Guard facilitate this dream easier than trying to go active duty?
