GM interested in DCO options

hello!
I am a GM in the reserves. I have a bachelors degree and my Masters degree in the field of social sciences. My bachelors GPA was a 3.8 and my Masters was a 3.9. I am currently a 2nd year PhD student, and my current GPA for my PhD is a 3.9. Since I want to stay on the reserve side and my degrees aren't directly in a specific Navy field (e.g. Medical officers or engineering), I was looking at DCO programs such as supply, public affairs, or even being a reserve human services officer.

I don't really care with what community I commission with, I just want to become an officer. I also want to remain in the reserves because I am on a full ride scholarship for my PhD at a pretty highly recognized school, so that would be too good to give up. I absolutely love being a GM in the Navy reserves, but I am interested in commissioning if it's possible.

Anyone have any insight, advice, or experiences? My NOSC is wonderful, but unfornately it is very small and we don't have a lot of officers. And the officers we do have are in medical and were never enlisted, so they aren't real familiar with the programs I am looking into.

Thanks!
