Thanks for the responses everyone, I think the recruiter was trying to do the typical "let's see if I can meet my quota by talking someone into enlisting". I hope he continues to warm up to me but I'm definitely not going to rely on him to help me out. I do have a B.A in History, graduated with a 2.992 (officially from my transcript) Can't get much closer than that. I'm currently 1 course away from my MBA with a gpa of 3.42, but I really don't want to wait and apply next summer once I have graduated. I'm nearly 28 and would like to get a career started. Despite the recruiter's negative feedback I'm going to push forward and give it everything I have. I'll keep everyone posted on my progress and provide any feedback that might be helpful to others. Thanks again for the replies!
Hello, I'm pleased to be writing this after I received advice from member Lindsey that this forum is a much better resource than my last location. So, I met with a recruiter this morning about applying for WOFT and of course I was given the it's easier from the enlisted side speech. He even gave that after I handed him a copy of the article written by CW5 Reese. http://www.quad-a.or...ese_1211p12.pdf I gave him my stats which aren't super impressive but he insisted that I needed a 3.5 or higher undergrad just to get in. GPA - 2.99 undergrad one course from MBA with 3.42 GPA AFAST - 128 QT - 93 GT- 132 APFT - 267 Letters from Active Duty Ltn Col. Aviation Active Duty Major Aviation Active Duty Major Acquisitions College professor/Dean of college Retired E8 - Ranger No waivers of any kind and yet he made it sound like I didn't have a chance. Then I told him that I understand that these packets are a lot of work and he started to back peddle and say that it was "part of his job" and that it was no problem. Most of my packet is already in the system from when I applied to OCS (non select at the USAREC level) so he doesn't even have to do the normal work load. He also said that the USAREC board is made up of E6's and up for the WOCS selection. Is this true? I was under the impression that WO's and O's sat on that board? Any advice or answers to the above question are greatly appreciated.
