Information About Selection

Roger. I'll assure I Get the PQS book for their EXW qual on day one. No, I'll be back from this deployment in February to my Parent command NRD New England. Between then and my transfer date of may I plan on getting an LOR from my O-5 NRD CO who is a SWO, a reserve O-5 SUPPO, taking the ASTB with with the local OR who is my DIVO. Degree will be conferred by June with between 2.9-3.0 on the button gpa in Business Administration. Going to study ASTB information as best as I can find online for now. Then the lastly the hope will be my new CO endorsement at a logistics command who will be a SUPPO O-5/O-6.
Some standout material I hope to offset the average gpa will be two NAMs/1 COM/MOVSM/diversity from taking both a recruiting tour and Individual Augmentee assignments/business acumen from being a yeoman/and consistent EP and MP evals.

If those stats stay as planned, do you see a chance for selection possible/likely?
A 2.9 to 3.0 for Supply is very low, SWO might be a better chance, if you medically qualify for NFO I would go for that.

Agreed with @NavyOffRec. We just had a YN2 from my local NRD get PROREC NO with similar stats, perhaps a slightly higher GPA. I recommend SWO or even NFO if you can make the cut.

I was planning on including NFO and SWO as top 1 and 2 until I saw the FY 17 board schedule. I'm seeing that the schedule goes out to August 2018, and with conferring my degree in June 2017/Arriving to my new command the same month, I wouldn't be able to get a full application through routing until most likely the beginning of July at the earliest. It shows all the NFO boards will have happened earlier in the year than I will have been able to apply for. It shows the only SWO only pro board from the July 2017 timeframe to the end of the schedule listed is that October 2017 one. If an NFO board popped up between July and say February that would be ideal. I would definitely apply.

Would being on a blood pressure med be a DQ for NFO? I was scrolling through the MANMED I believe at one point and saw that certain types of BP meds can be DQ for tactical aircraft but maybe that doesn't include P-8s/E-2s. Or I can always just get myself right and get off it all together :)

Regardless, I appreciate both of your input and guidance!

Most things are "history of" so it is possible you would not get cleared for any officer programs since any history of high blood pressure is disqualifying, but see what N3M says, you would know that before the boards.

I realize to a new applicant going through meps this is disqualifying, but I didn't think it would be for my situation since I was put on the medication and cleared for sea/duty deployment and this scenario occurred while on active duty. I was under the impression that since my pre-commissioning physical would be with a Military treatment facility rather than meps and if I was cleared for enlisted duty already that I wouldn't be DQ for officer for the same reason. And that I fall under different standards than a new accession non-active applicant? Any input on that?

I would like to be able to confirm if I am not qualified for that reason alone before going through the work to apply.

I just had an active duty AF get DQ from N3M for medication, even though the Doctor at the AF Hospital said he was fine.

Some things if you are on AD are looked past, others are not. Several years ago there was a sailor in my department who was picked up SNA, then during the medical review he was found to be NPQ not just for SNA but for ALL commissioning programs, no CWO, no LDO, nothing, he was told he would be able to continue on as enlisted until retirement but that was it. We had another who was found NPQ for SWO and all OCS programs but ok for CWO and LDO, he commissioned later as an LDO.

The most interesting was a HM at a local Naval Hospital who N3M said was not eligible to commission, the CO of the NH called N3M and the result of the O-6 to O-6 conversation was the HM was still NPQ even though the HM was fine medically to continue on as enlisted.

There is no Pilot/NFO board for the 17th. Also, you can find your own answer by searching previous board threads.

My recruiter told me the same thing. Almost verbatim; "The board convenes the week after 16 Dec 2016 and you should know the results early to mid January." I sent my package off on November. Good to know though.

NRC is on holiday standdown around 18 Dec - 4 Jan, meaning staff is at limited capacity. No boards are convening around that time because folks are gone for holiday leave.

I've seen the same as the latter, RDML in charge of all medical of the west coast calling the N3M captain. Same deal no dice.

If selected a year in advance of graduation from school, is there an average wait time before receiving orders?
