Hello everyone,

Just want to get some feedback on my current stats of my package. I plan on submitting my application in October. Here you go:

20/M/Caucasian

Degree: Criminal Justice and Political Science (in progress/junior year)
GPA: 2.78 (had a rough freshman year and switched majors)
ASTB: 56 6/5/5 (first attempt)
Applying for 1st: SNA 2nd: NFO
LORs: NROTC CO O-6 and XO O-5 (was in NROTC for two years but did not receive a scholarship so I was dropped), Deputy Commander of Future Operations for the Pacific Fleet O-5, Port Commissioner (retired Naval Aviator O-5 and summer job boss), current college job boss, and a family friend (retired Naval Aviator 05).

Background: I have wanted to be a Naval Aviator my entire life. I have worked my hardest to do what I can to earn that title. I was in NROTC for 2 years with excellent PT and Eval scores. I have had many awards from high school and NROTC. I am also in great standings with all my current and former employers.

Hello all!

I am a 24 year old in decent physical shape and have been trying to get a waiver for awhile for psoriasis to join and fly in the Navy! I got the good word I am cleared to apply, i got my waiver!! I was just wondering if I could get some insight on how competitive my package is and if there is anything I could do to make it better. I have already taken the ASTB twice.

GPA-3.19
Major-Agricultural Business and Business Administration
OAR-51
AQR-6
PFAR-7
FOFAR-7

I have had decent managerial and leadership work experience last two years leading and directing 70-100 direct reports and I have 6 references.
One is a retired 2 star from the Army
One a retired captain from the Marine Corps
The others are from my boss, past professors and direct co-workers

I plan to have my package submitted for the December deadline and find out the results this upcoming January but any insight to my chances or what I could do to help my chances would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Mike

FWIW, I got picked up about a year ago for SNA with a 55 6/7/6, and at the time that was pretty average I would say. Not sure if there are still peopling do this, but at the time I was selected, people had made spreadsheets from the previous boards indicating people’s scores and whether or not they were selected. It at least gives you a pretty good idea of what some competitive numbers look like.
