Evening everyone,

I’m currently working with an AMEDD Recruiter to put my 70B direct commission packet together before the first FY19 board in August. I was wondering, at a glance, what my chances of getting selected may be. Here are my stats:

-127 GT Score
-Bachelor’s in Health Services Admin. 3.58 GPA, Cum Laude (2012)
-270 APFT
-3.5 years of active duty service (ongoing) as a 35S2OM7
-3 strong LOR from O-5’s

I feel my lack of experience in Health Admin. may hinder me. I was a banker for Quicken Loans after college for a couple years before I decided to join the Army in the drawdown. I decided to go MI as enlisted until I decided if I wanted to make it a career as an officer.

If there’s anything that you think I can do to increase my odds, please let me know.

Hey,
Any updates on this? I'm in a similar situation to you, and I'm looking for the best path to commissioning. I have my bachelors in HA, and all of my work experience is in healthcare; nursing, paramedic, administration... That being said I want to be in MS corps. I started an OCS packet, but with OCS you can't do MS anymore. I was wondering what other options were out there, and who you had to talk to for information. Can you do green to gold for a graduate degree? How has your path been going?

Board was canceled. I applied to Green to Gold: Active Duty Option and was 1 of 370 to make it out of 650+ applicants. Pursuing masters degree in Fall 19’ on GI Bill, while still getting paid active duty wage. Commissioning in May 21’ hopefully as a MSC Officer if I place high enough on the OML.

1LT (Join to see) I’m not sure. I’ve applied to Green to Gold. I’m going to take my chances at getting a branch I want with this program (if I’m selected).
