How much time have you given for a response? They could be on leave or TAD.
Depends on from which region you are applying.
If you live in the Washington, DC area, then I feel for you. That board is notorious only because Washington, DC has a very large population of overqualified people applying to the DCO program.
RUMINT... I am prior Enlisted and had to apply twice.
I wasn't referring to the applicants I was referring to the board members, you can have the best applicant in the world but if the board members give you an average score you are done.
Some of the questions board members have asked our applicants include "How is a division set up", "what would you be doing on your dril..l weekends", "what would an Intel officer do for their active time", "what would you look for when reviewing an eval", basically questions that really could be answered by a person that was prior enlisted.
Hmmm...well I submitted my completed app on Wednesday and then asked him about MEPS (I turned
my medicals in about 2 weeks ago because he said I could start that process now) but I didn't receive any
confirmation or response. My younger brother is enlisting and I wanted to go to MEPS at the same time
as him. I'm just paranoid. The wait is killing me!
UPDATE: Welp, looks like I've been cut off. Haven't heard from Chief in 4 weeks, emails/calls
go unreturned. BLAH! Thanks for all the input advice! Go Navy!
Given some of the info put out to recruiters many are taking leave as there isn't much work unless a person is qualified for Nuke or Pilot. NRC is recommending no active Intel selections at the April board and on the reserve side some info we rec'd on Friday is they may now only select 4 or 5 nationwide.
No active Intel selections in April?? Please tell me that's not the final word on this...
Anyway don't get too discouraged, the officer recruiters (at least in my area) are very busy, you'll usually have more luck contacting him directly at the office or just dropping in. Mine has been working very hard to help with getting my packet in for the April Intel board.
As far as SWO, you must be commissioned before your 29th birthday, age waivers are only accepted for prior enlisted. Unfortunatly this is the case with most of the rankings now apparently due to cutbacks they are becoming much more selective.
That is what it is looking like, evidently the overall Intel accessions from all sources this year was about 30 over, and the OCS selections were over so many have slid to FY13 so there are only about 10 spots left, that is why NRC is recommending no Intel selections at the May board, it was April.
