For what it's worth - it took me two boards to select for Intel. I had 4-5 previous attempts for active duty JAG without success too starting as far back as 2011-2012. Apply early and apply often. Apply boards are a painfully slow process. My current CO - who is also a direct commission officer told me he had to apply six times before finally being selected. I had a previous CO that had very similar story. These spots are extremely competitive. Both these CO's I'm mentioning made 0-6, so don't let a few bumps along the selection high way make you think you will not succeed.
