Read the SWO program authorization to find out.Just out of curiosity and because I was reading the 1420.1b. Has anyone ever commissioned with a OAR score of 35 or anything less then that?
Also, SWO community are there age waivers for active duty that of selected would be 35 when they go to OCS??
It’s very rare, but the whole purpose of a PA is to enforce the applicant quality pool. If a certain community wanted folks with lower OAR scores they would have done so.I am asking if anyone has ever commissioned with a low score like that. And it has been known that not everyone that has a high score and has commissioned is great at their job. Good test takers are not all great leaders.
Which ones? The PAs are in the process of being revised and I don’t remember seeing one mentioning that you must be single.Threadjack - some of the PAs list marital status as criteria. Was there ever a time where you were ineligible for a program if not single?
Several, including SPEWAR, Intel, PAO, have it listed under 4.g. as "Marital status: no restrictions." USNA aside, wondering why such criteria is still listed.Which ones? The PAs are in the process of being revised and I don’t remember seeing one mentioning that you must be single.
USNA is the only commissioning program I know of where you can’t be married.
And I understand that test are the backbone of the Navy and with out them people would not be able to advance in the Enlisted world. However, I just wanted to see if anyone has ever seen this first hand and not just tell me that they think people that are taking the OAR and cannot advance have some type of issue with themselves. Anyway thank you for the information . It was just a question .It’s very rare, but the whole purpose of a PA is to enforce the applicant quality pool.

Also, tests are the backbone in the Navy. For enlisted advancement you need to pass a test. For schooling, you take tons of tests. If you don’t have the skills to pass tests it doesn’t matter how “good” of a Navy leader you are. You need to pass academic tests at OCS and throughout your Navy schooling as an officer.
