Making Recruiting Great Again
Hope to revive this thread here.

I'm putting together my application now and it has some highs and lows. Trying to see if they can counterbalance one another.

Applying: NFO
GPA: 2.9, Physics Major
ASTB: 67 8/7/7
LORs: Ret. Marine General, Current Supervisor who is a Captain in the Army Guard. 3rd LOR pending.
Waivers: Legal. I was drinking underage and had a Fake ID (18yo, 6.5 years ago). Record has been expunged.
Vision: 20/60

OR and I are working on gathering all the material on my citations. I've given him a PDF of the citation, my written account, a background check from when the records were visible, receipt of community service, and the expungement order. Both were misdemeanors. It's a weird situation because no official docs exist that prove the crime happened, but I was unaware the record was expunged so I disclosed it to my OR. Also my lawyer said even though it was expunged, it should always be disclosed to gov't.
There’s already an ACTIVE stats/chances thread. See signature line...

OAR\ASTB=51 5,6,6
Waiting on medical to sign off -> then can get CO's endorsement -> then LOR's
2.6 GPA from CSU-Pueblo in Computer Information of Systems

How do I stack up???

From my research and looking around for a few hours my GPA is a little worrisome. I am applying for the Pilot and NFO billets and being that they are somewhat open, I am thinking I should be OK, but wanted another option.

Things like airliners poaching pilots and the navy lowering their standards to the point where their is no GPA requirements on the program authorization for pilot and NFO.
