I was wondering if I should even bother applying right now. I’m 27 YO with two years experience as a civilian mechanical engineer for the Navy and a half year of project management at a civil engineering company. I’m still early in my career. I have a bachelors in mechanical engineering and a masters in systems engineering with roughly 3.3 GPAs in both. I’m also currently working on a masters in computer science because work is paying for it and I enjoy the subject matter.
Good skills and education...why not try? Are you at NAVAIR in your civ job?

Yes I am! I’ll try and start the application process once I find a recruiter. Hopefully i can find someone to respond now that the New Year has passed.

You should talk to some of the AEDO/AMDO DCOs that are civvies at NAVAIR. They'll have the real gouge, having suffered through the process of getting in.

Making Recruiting Great Again
Greetings all! I’m new to the board and am a AEDO/AMDO hopeful. I was wondering if I should even bother applying right now. I’m 27 YO with two years experience as a civilian mechanical engineer for the Navy and a half year of project management at a civil engineering company. I’m still early in my career. I have a bachelors in mechanical engineering and a masters in systems engineering with roughly 3.3 GPAs in both. I’m also currently working on a masters in computer science because work is paying for it and I enjoy the subject matter.

I’m still waiting to hear back from the right OR (so far it’s been phone tag and voice mails due to the new year). I’m sure they can give me a better idea of where I stand... If I can ever get the right POC for my region. I just wanted to get an opinion from those who have experience in applying.
DCO AMDO/AEDO is competitive enough as is. Being that you have limited experience it might shy away recruiters willing to work with you.

Quiet lately, anybody else kicking in for this year's board?
I've considered applying again but it was quite the experience last time with all of my recruiters. On a positive note, I just finished my masters in mechanical engineering to be "competitive". I wonder what the allocations are looking like nowadays. Is there a demand for EDOs in the fleet right now?

EDO has a higher selection rate than AMDO/AEDO DCO right now...

New to this forum. I'm submitting a AEDO/AMDO package this year. Has anybody else heard that the board has been delayed until 17 May?

I am also new to this forum. My DCO kit for AMDO has been submitted April 3rd. At that point, I had not heard that it has been postponed. Then again, my recruiter has been less than stellar.

AwBooth, my recruiter gave me another update today saying that the board is meeting on 3 May. Can anyone confirm?
