OCS The Average OCS Supply Applicant

Just out of curiosity, has anyone heard of a Supply applicant being accepted with a GPA waiver?

I have scanned through the average supply applicant excel file and didn’t see any. I’m just curious to know if it has been done before as I know the GPA is a minimum of 3 and they have added in the required calculus classes.
Well, I just applied to this most recent board in May and I had both a GPA and an age waiver despite the fact that I'm prior active duty so I guess we'll see and use me as the lab rat lol

Supply is so competitive they often look for any reason to give a Pro-N, with the recent change to the aviation age I would look at SNA or SNFO.

Please allow me to clarify the math requirements for Supply Corps eligibility. The Program Authorization (PA) is in route to reflect this. The minimum math requirements are two college level math classes with a B average or better. When we wrote the PA, the language was for a calculus class with a C or two pre-calc classes with a B average. The term pre-calc was very confusing for recruiters and applicants so we simplified it. Good luck!

Professional Recommendation rates ebb and flow for all officer communities. In the past the Supply community ratio of applicants vs. available slots caused the board to be quite competitive. This is not the case right now. I encourage everyone to put your package together and apply to the board if you’re interested.

The NRC used to be very good about getting out the selection rates of all the designators, when they did some organizational changes it became spotty at best, I feel that is more due to the communication from NRC down to the the OR's than anything else.

I would say competitive rates due vary but also what is considered competitive from one person to another will vary, I would consider competitive to be anything under 30% selection rate. The boards were quite brutal when the selection rate was running around 20%, if there was a reason to cut an applicant to make the selections easier it happened, that is how SWO became so popular lol.
