I have my package with my chain of command. They probably sent it out this week, i am yet to verify. So my age waiver has not been approved yet. Have you sent your package up?

Has anybody had any experience yet with the 34/35yo age waivers and how long they are taking? CNRC said there are a lot coming in, but I am keeping my hopes up. Would love to hear if any of yours got processed and how long it took!

It's good to see that there are others in this age group. I am just hoping it is not too late for them to process waivers for age for packages that were sent in last week. I guess we will see!

My waiver took 7 1/2 weeks to come back. I am 34 turning 35 next month. Remember it's all a case-by-case basis, so your experience could be different from mine. I was waiting on the waiver during the August board, heard back a week after it convened.

The good news is that they are apparently taking a ton of age waivers right now for SWO. I have a prior-service friend who just completed OCS. He said that there were several folks in their early to late 30s in SWO slots. So even if you have to wait, given the current trends, you are likely to get good news on a waiver.

Good luck to y'all. Stay motivated.
