First off, I love this forum. I've pored through it for months and it's been tremendously helpful. I'll be putting in an Aviation/NFO/SWO package in September, and I'm planning to take my first ASTB attempt in July. I'm not at all troubled about areas I can improve, like my grades and aptitude test scores and fitness. I'm more concerned about a lack of extracurricular participation in my past. I'm about to graduate with a journalism (lol) degree and a nearly 3.9 GPA. Assuming I do super well on the ASTB, I don't think my non-sciency degree will be too big a deal (so I've read), but I'm a little concerned about leadership experience. A great many of the OCS packages I've seen included experience in sports/Eagle Scouts/etc. I can think of only a few things that would qualify as volunteer experience, and the majority of them don't really entail leadership: Played music in my chapel team during senior year of high school (volunteer) Served multiple editor positions (including editor-in-chief) on one college newspaper for two years, then more editor work on a magazine for a year, and then more editor work at my next college for half a year Volunteered editing work for quarterly newsletter targeted to Huntington's disease community The news/magazine editor stuff (especially EIC) was definitely a taste of leadership, but that's about it. Nothing really off-campus or sporty or anything like that. Have any of you been accepted to OCS with this much (or less) leadership experience to tout?
