^ Gator - that may have been how it worked. I just remember that the ROTC guys ended up with lineal numbers after the Academy guys. My commissioning from AOCS was 1 week before the Academy. I pinned on LCDR a year earlier than my friend who commissioned via ROTC 1 week after me and 1 day before the Academy. He was after all the earlier ROTC grads who were after the Academy grads. Of course this was also when Academy was USN and ROTC/AOCS were USNR.

....(although I would guess their lineal numbers were lower, if they had them)
I know you were guessing, but this is not true. A YG98 ROTC guy in my squadron has a lineal number senior to me. He graduated and commissioned during the regular time frame.

Anyone know the "authorized to select" number for the board, the number of Captains the board can name? In other words, knowing my lineal number, how likely am I to be promoted?...
Looking at the stats from previous boards, they were authorized to select 100% of eligible 1stLts. 98% + were promoted-including ALL eligible pilots. Looking at the stats the least likely MOS to promote was infantry (still 98% promotion rate).

Look, don't stress about making Captain. I can pretty well gaurentee you that the folks who didn't get selected for Captain knew it before hand and that nobody who knew them were the least bit surprised.

Unless you have a serious problem, you're just fine.

I may not have written it clearly. I was referring to two ensigns, one a USNA guy, one a ROTC guy. IF O-1s had lineal numbers (which I'm pretty sure you don't get until O-2), THEN I was guessing that the USNA guy's number would be higher, given same date of commission.

Then again, maybe you just sucked and he was better than you? Smiles, of course.

Most of it's already been discussed, but here's a link from MMPR to a document called "Keeping Your Record Current". It has a big section on how to correct date gaps and some other good stuff.

The way I was taught to keep up with it and have done it since, is to get a copy of my OMPF/MBS every year in the month that I came in. So every August I fire off a request. Obviously I might give a month or so either way if something big is going on, or if I'm expecting a fitrep to show up in the system. I'd rather wait a couple of weeks and have a copy of it on the CD.

Don't be in too much of a hurry to get promoted. Believe me, it happens a lot faster than it seems, and when you're up for it, most of the time you'll find yourself thinking "I'm not done being a XXX yet".
