Your GPA is low, and it doesn’t help that it was from a liberal arts degree. The only sub 2.5 person (out of the streets) I’ve seen selected was for pilot and the applicant had an engineering degree, a very high ASTB score, and the gpa was around a 2.48.Currently in DEP. I also have a BA in Psych, GPA is 2.3. I eventually want to commission. Enlisting now because I want to serve and GPA is too low for OCS. Would being enlisted give me a better chance at being accepted to go to OCS? If not, what would be the best step for my situation?
You forgot to tell him that he's looking at years and at least a second enlistment before he's eligible to apply for LDO. Plus the fact that LDO is highly competitive and if he's not selected, he's still obligated to finish his enlistment. Probably a minimum of 10 years enlisted before eligible to apply and another 3 or 4 years minimum until commissioning after that.Probably your best option would be to excel in your rate and try for LDO as they look at what you have done in your job more than anything.
It would be at least 2 enlistments as they have to have 8 years by the time the FY starts for that board, if the person is selected at the board they are commissioned in that FY. The competitiveness can vary I have seen people pickup LDO but not selected repeatedly for CPO or SCPO.You forgot to tell him that he's looking at years and at least a second enlistment before he's eligible to apply for LDO.

A big part of it I think was how fast I moved up in the division with quals and becoming a supervisor. And how well I did with interviews for the job. My ships XO was one of them and just seeing his signature of approval in green ink helped I’m sure.Besides your scores what do you think got you accepted?
I'd consider the limitless opportunities at the Florabama at least a fringe benefit.Title says it all. My recruiter said there are no bonuses available. I have my bachelors degree in Kinesiology with no prior flight experience. I read online enlistment bonus with bachelors is 8,000. So are there any bonuses available or is that basically absorbed by the huge cost it takes to train new pilots?
They have done that before with the PA, while it did not give a minimum GPA the board itself would make a cut, sometimes the info is passed down a cut was made, often it isn't, the IWC board made the cut at one board of 3.0 where everyone below it was auto Pro-N."I just did OHARP at an Officer Recruiting station and I don’t think your GPA disqualifies you from the new requirements to apply for Pilot/Naval Flight Officer. That being said you would need to score really high on the ASTB since your GPA is so low an average score of 6/6/6 likely wouldn’t get you accepted. I would assume you’d need 7/7/7 or higher to be considered. I was told while working there that recently the navy took down a GPA req for pilot/NFO you just need any bachelors degree from an accredited college/university, an average OAR score and a high ASTB score.
- I just did OHARP as well and can confirm this information is true. Navy has removed GPA requirements on some jobs. That being said, my LT would more than likely pass up on a 2.3 GPA and would give it to the enlisted recruiters to work as a potential contract."
Originally, I was I was planning on just doing enlisted but I posted on reddit and someone commented saying what's in quotations up top. Thats why I came back here. Studying is no problem for me I just didnt apply my self before. I am now. Is there any truth from what was commented?
