What NRC considers competitive

Gentleman, I want to throw my stats out there in the hopes of answering 2 questions. First, what kind of weight does having flight hours and or a private pilots license carry in the boards decision? Secondly, how much does the OAR and AQR factor in an SNA application? From looking at previous SNA boards on here it seems that I am far under the average.

Applying for SNA

25 y/o
Prior Service Air Force
GPA 3.1 Public Safety B.A.S
OAR 49 5/7/6
Student Pilot w/30 hrs


I will be submitting for the next board regardless, however do you guys recommend taking the ASTB again?
I can’t speak for the weight of flying hours, but I’m sure it helps. As for the ASTB the SNA mins are 5/6. I would apply for the board and if you don’t get picked up, retake it and reapply. Best of luck.

First timer here looking to see where I stack up against the rest. Also have a question about medical eligibility. Spoke with Millington already and they gave me a somewhat vague answer to my question. Looking to submit for IWC Board in 16 SEP 19 for Intel (I'm an IS). Started my commissioning physical and been given the green light. However, I have an appt with the surgeon after my physical to see if I need surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff. I'm cleared medically, but surgery would take place in June, and I would be back to full duty after the board adjourns. Should I wait to submit for the next board once I get cleared medically or go forward with the 4th Quarter submission? Thanks in advance

Being a cowboys fan makes you ineligible to join. Too many of you guys already in the commissioned ranks.

Note - A CAPT (select) is still called a CDR. Only CPO selectees roll with the (select) rank.

I was almost the same boat as you. 39 y/o prior IS1. Dislocated shoulder (tore some stuff too) prior to OCS. I can't tell you what you should/shouldn't do but I definitely wouldn't show up to OCS with an injury or having just recovered from surgery.

Besides being a Cowboys fan, how does the rest of it look?

And the "SEL" is a holdover from this CAPT I used to work for who picked up his first star. Even though he didn't get promoted for another year, he had us address him as Admiral Select until he promoted.

There is medically cleared to be fit for duty and medically cleared to go to OCS, those things are not equal, for instance minor hernia surgery is a 6 month wait before you can be cleared to go to OCS, I worked with a guy who was in excellent physical shape, maxed out everything on the PRT, ended up getting a torn rotator cuff, he was cleared fit for duty several weeks later but could not do any exercises using that would involving using his arm for 6 months, wasn't back to full workout mode for 1 year.

You need to ask the surgeon how long until you can do high intensity physical fitness with no restrictions, even then it is still up to N3M how long you have to wait after surgery, you could submit, get selected, then lose the spot due to length of medical wait, and technically you are supposed to be fully fit and ready to go to OCS when you submit, so I am wonder how you are cleared medically and if N3M say that in your paperwork.

Boards don't care about your work history/resume as you're also competing against folks fresh out of college. Your GPA and degree are where they need to be, your OAR is okay... and would recommend retaking in the event you're not selected.

Your GPA and OAR score are killing you. I hope you get it though. Good luck!

I know, my first 2.5 years of college weren’t great and I couldn’t get over the chiefs in the other room talking while I was taking my OAR. Had to step out and ask them to keep it down. No excuses though, I’ll still submit for the 16SEP IWC board though.

Like I said, good luck. Surprisingly when I went through NIOBC there were no other prior IS's besides me at the schoolhouse (besides some of the instructors). Lots of CT's though.

How long ago did you go through? Quite possible that I taught one or two of your classes. I’m stationed there now
