A few years back, the Army put out you cannot have over 10 years of active duty time and are no longer accepting waivers for it.
I think this is a slap in the face for Soldiers that were getting their degrees, while also fighting in the longest running war. It took me from 2001 - 2012 to get mine, with 5 deployments squeezed in there.
Just wanted to know advantages of not accepting candidates that have over 10 years.

There is no advantage that I can think of.  In fact, the requirement should be that you serve at least 10 years after commissioning.

This requirement sucks because I'll finish my BA when I hit 10yrs.

I just got my 10 year mark and was just told I couldn't put in my OCS packet because of my TIS. I work for a 4 star, do you think he could make a few calls so HRC could make an exception ?
