    The will average all GPA's together by adding up all GPA credits earned then divide by GPA credits attempted.

    You are an MC with a good GPA so you are probably one of the better qualified people here that has said they were going to try for PAO.

    Since you are USN AD you must have degree in hand before submitting, only non-AD USN, non-reserve USN, can apply before graduation.

    Awesome. Well my GPA will likely go down a little with that average but hopefully I can maintain my BA GPA high and then keep it up throughout my Master's. Stufying for the OAR now, so at least I have some time to dissect the gouges. I think math will be my weak point, so hopefully studies will help! I know it's been asked a zillion times, but what do you think would be a good base OAR score to shoot for with a higher gpa. I know higher is better, but I'm not the best math guru. Would a 50 be safe, or is that just the norm?

    The OAR just really gets you to the dance, if they need to look at OAR they are digging deep.

    PAO will look at your experience, your GPA, your background, etc..... OAR is a small part.
