I think there's a way forward with this if you are serious - but I think a very good place to start would be enlisting in the navy reserve as intel specialist. And don't be close to the Army - the Army is big. What the Navy says no to - the Army says yes routinely. They just need more people.AW,
A quick update...
I took the OAR and got a 53. That was not a fun experience... I believe this score still qualifies me for Intel, even though it may not be super competitive. I'll try to get a strong package together and see how it goes in March!
I haven't ruled out the reserve options. It might be the perfect way to move forward if I run out of time for selection.
