Too many LORS submit with only 2-3 (the ones who actually know you and can speak to you, not just the highest rank)I have a similar question that was asked in a previous submission, I'm going for the SWO board in November.
I have a masters GPA of 3.125 (not to impressive)
As well as 5+ recommendations one from a prior SWO who was a CO, a president of a large pharmaceutical company, a congressman, a judge, two volunteer directors from reputable NGO's, a past coach, a church pastor, and awaiting one from a active duty Captain.
With all that and a strong person statement what would my chances be realistically since it was stated the community is backed up at the moment with applicants? I'm also currently active duty enlisted with less than 1 year of experience.
SWO is incredibly random with acceptances, some boards borderline single digit acceptance and others >50%.
SWO is not the only designator backed up right now, they all are and that includes great lakes.
Regardless, start studying, because BDOC,JOOD,ADOC all have increasingly high attrition rates.
