Welcome to Librarium Online!
I am considering three fleet compositions for a 1250pt tourny. Please give thoughts/comments:
Jackal squadron 1 - (3 ships)
Jackal squadron 2 - (3 ships)
Dirge squadron 1 - (4 ships)
Dirge squadron 2 - (4 ships)
Total - 1245
Jackal squadron 1 - (4 ships)
Jackal squadron 2 - (4 ships)
Total - 1250
Jackal squadron 1 (4 ships)
Jackal squadron 2 (4 ships)
Jackal squadron 3 (4ships)
Total - 1225
The plan was to AAF two units of jackals around the ends and hopefully behind the opposing fleet. Leaving the Scythes and any remaining ships to move up and finish off.

First off you're going to have to modify your post- you aren't allowed to post specific points costs (tis in contravention of copyright laws, could bring legal action upon LO).
So, the lists. The second one is probably the least likely, those Scythes are just too expensive and you need to pread your cost out evenly- loose just one and it's an uphill struggle in terms of VPs (see the thread near the top which deals with this).
As for the other two, I'd say the first is probably best, for the same reasons- even Jackals are expensive (or am I confusing Jackals with something else? I'm sure there are 2 cruisers and 2 escorts, no?) I'm not entirely sure, whichever one has the most vessels in it so that the loss of one of them won't be felt as badly. So the first list would be the one I'd choose.
From, what I hear, Dirges don't get a lot of use. Why, I don't know. So yeah, go with the first list and see if conventional wisdom is really all that wise.
