Be more self flagellating. I talked about my misdemeanor reckless driving conviction, which in my state happens if you go +20mph over the speed limit (I was much faster), like it was my biggest moral failing and how, in my repentance, I realized lessons valuable to a future naval officer.I was not selected on this board and I think it was mostly due to a recent public intoxication charge( class C misdemeanor). I am reapplying for the February board and my recruiter told me that I have to write a short one paragraph statement asking to be reconsidered. Im retaking my ASTB soon and I know I will easily score above a 55 5/6/6 this time around because I only studied for a week last time. ANYWAYS, can yall help me edit my statement below?... I really dont know what to say other than I want this really fkn bad!
"To the members of the OCS selection board,
Thank you for taking for taking the time to review my packet back in August and once again on this current board. Not being selected my first time around has reconfirmed my desire to become a leader in the Navy and has honed in my focus on this goal. Over the past 6 months since hearing the news, I have improved my scores, remained in good moral standing, and continued to volunteer in my community.
Please reconsider my application and thank you again for your time."
Good luck on the ASTB! I’m sure we’ll both get accepted in February!
