Thanks for the feedback! I ended up changing my statement drastically anyway... put a lot more focus into SWO than anything else, just like what you suggested for CW. Apparently my recruiter got permission to send my package through at my current age of 29. Maybe the new PA’s allowed age waivers or they just expanded the age range. Congrats on CW pickup, when are you going to OCS?I was just selected for CW and I went extremely heavy into why I specifically wanted to do CW in my personal statement. I see you put that you want to go CW in your bio. Unlike the other boards, the IWC board actually looks at and dissects your personal statement. It obviously isn't more important than a high GPA/OAR score but it is weighted more than if you were applying for any of the other communities. It can be the thing that puts you over the top.
There's some fluff in your statement that can be cut which can then be replaced with why you would be a good CW officer. Have you ever briefed a principal? Managed a team of people? Made complicated subjects discernible to someone who isn't good with that particular issue? Worked with computers or done any academic related work with things that are relevant to CW?
I would say my personal statement was 2/3rds why I would be good at CW, 1/3 why I would be a good officer/talking about the Navy values. Maybe my strategy wasn't correct but I had a slightly above average GPA with a non-stem degree and an above average OAR score so my personal statement is what I think made the difference.
