    Nope. I still can't see results for this board on my BOL.

    Any support is always appreciated. Have you put any thought into Surface Warfare?

    You had a very little chance getting accepted to supply with a non-STEM/business degree. Similar with Intel, STEM degrees or masters degrees are key. I would consider SWO if your overall goal is Officer.

    Didn't get selected for SWO. And I've already taken the OAR 3 times, so no chance of bringing that score up.

    I thought for Intel, at least according to navy.com, they'd be looking for Internationals relations majors or something similar. But oh well

    The navy.com website is often misleading and often I defer applicants from there. Yes, you might meet the min requirements with your degree but ideally the board wants STEM majors over liberal arts.

    SWO
    Intel
    Supply
    I believe it was. I only chose Supply due to my 3rd recruiter saying I should apply to that (when my second OAR score wasn't high enough).

    I've more or less resigned myself and need to regroup

    Retake the OAR and aim for a 50/55+ score and reapply for SWO. You should be fine. Your OAR is just a little below the norm and need to tweak it up a bit.

    She said she already took it 3 times, unless one was under the old system.

    if by "old system", you mean pencil and paper..nope. funnily enough, my third score is the same as my first score, and the computer/program froze and the lady had to call the company and deal with it for 20-30 minutes.

    ha, looking back it was probably a sign
