  1. Yeah, I don't think ArmyOCS.com really likes to hear about anything outside of the OCS program, so I didn't post on there. From what I was told I have to pick 5 jobs/branches. My performance dictates whether or not I get my 1st choice or my last. At least that is my understanding anyway. I would think that you are guaranteed a commission. I can't see why they would accept you in the program, spending a lot of time and resources, and then not offer a commission. Then again, I could be wrong and it's definitely going to be a question I ask when I talk to them again this week. As for AV,
  2. Yeah, 30 days is what the Lt. I talked to told me as well. According to what he said they are ranked in the top 10% too and that LTC was like basic on steroids. Is LDAC the course you go through after your final semester before you graduate with a degree (senior year does sound like it would fit for me lol)? The branch I'm hoping to get is MP.
  3. I'm not really looking for a scholarship to be truthful. I got a small scholarship, due to my grades, from the University. My real interest is getting the degree and a commission at the same time. I'll be okay with student loans for the rest of the tuition I think. On a side note, I heard LTC is tough. Looking forward to it though. I'm excited about the whole thing really. Can't wait until June/July lol. How old were your friends? I'm asking because I was wondering how often someone has gone through the program at my age.
  4. I know this is not WOFT related, but I thought this would be helpful for anyone that might be interested in a commission as an Army Officer and did not know that ROTC is an option after 26. I recently contacted the Department of Military Science at a University in my area and found out at age 29, with a bachelors degree, I could still attend ROTC for my Masters, get a commission, and serve active. It came as a huge surprise to me and I have to say I'm excited to get started. I took their PT test for entry, pasted all except the run. I got 1.5 miles in 13 mins before I couldn't run any mo
  5. I was leaning towards getting all 6 letters. I want at least 2 of the 6 to come from CWO's or CO's if I can get them. I'm still working on getting a LOR from the Helms School of Government Dean at Liberty, but no reply yet. I think my next 1, or 2 depending on what happens with the Dean, will come from individuals in the Law Enforcement field. One is a Deputy Sheriff that I have worked with and known for 13 yrs or so. The other guy I have known for 10 yrs and he is the Chief of Police. I think they know me well enough to describe my qualities, good or bad, pretty well.
  6. I got 2 LOR's completed today. Both are from previous professors at Liberty University. 4 more to go. I also got the typed version of my essay completed. The hand written portion is more difficult than I thought it would be, mainly because I am never happy with my penmanship. Wanted to get some thoughts about getting the maximum amount of LORs compared to the required 3.
  7. Great thread! These videos are absolutely phenomenal!
  8. Just wanted to check in and say progress is still going slow. The recruiting station in my area is not willing to let me get started on the packet until I reach the weight requirements. I personally feel that is a waste of valuable time that could be used for making progress in 2 areas at once, but that's me. Current weight is now 199lb. So I am pretty close. Been hitting the cycling hard to burn those cals (5hrs worth yesterday no joke). I have started working on acquiring my LOR's and Essay. I asked a recruiter on how I could go about setting up an interview with a Warrant Officer or
  9. Thank you for your suggestions, information, and opinions. Hey Lindsey, thanks for steering me in the direction of this site. I have started working on the SF-86 form today. Man that form is long lol. I know my PT is pretty weak at the moment. I am working hard to try and get to where I need to be physically. My goal is to make the Jan 2013 Board. Not sure on how realistic that expectation is, but that is what I am shooting for. I have a few individuals lined up for the LOR's. The one thing that I am unsure of is how to go through the proper channels to set up an interview with a Seni
