Is there usually a waiting list for the administrative clerk MOS in the marine corps reserve?

Or any other personnel and administration MOS for that matter?

    That is totally dependent on the needs of the local USMCR Unit(s). Unlike the Active Marine Corps. the USMCR recruits people that live within 50 miles and a 1 hour drive from the local unit(s). If there are no vacancies for the desired MOS and they cannot double slot you, then there is no waiting list, as they have no real idea when a vacancy might open up.

    If you are interested in an FBI career it is very important to decide what capacity you wish to train in to serve the FBI. From your question I can only assume you want to enter Internal Affairs as a lawyer. The FBI is an Intelligence Agency, if you are pursuing a military path there you need to enter the Air Force or Army Reserve in a field such as communications. This will get you a fairly solid security clearance which will be instrumental in showing your ability to maintain confidentiality. The Marine Reserves are more combat oriented and often deployed more frequently than other US troops. It appears that you are not interested in combat deployment, so they would definitely not be for you. By the way, accountants and financial personnel are often deployed. On a more concerned note, it seems to me that you are using the military for your own private sector ambitions. Military personnel exist to be deployed, so trying to find a cushy desk job is a risky propostition at best.

    It depends on the unit. If they have an open slot, then no wait. No open slot, you wait or enlist as something else.
