I've not been able to find any solid gouge on this for NFOs specifically. Does anyone know when the best time to apply to NPS is? Ive heard that 1st shore tour is best if you're getting a degree elsewhere but from my understanding NPS is like a tour in itself where it doesn't have to be balanced with regular duty so I'm not sure when the best time to go would be. Also, which masters degrees do well to set one up well for advancement later down the road? I'm not an engineer so I was thinking MBA in finance would be valuable knowledge at the senior end of my career in the navy. Much Thanks!
