    No branch detail requests? That's the way to go.

    so word on the street is that they took 800 cadets slated for reserve/NG slots and moved them into AD slots using whatever was left over...

    doesn't effect those of us who were already going AD, as in they didn't factor into competition for branches; also doesn't effect those who got a by-name-request for reserves/NG

    Yeah, I heard that too. Maybe my buddy who wanted active and got reserve will get hooked up.

    I hate waiting, I just want to know.

    No Idea. They won't tell us until they come out. Very frustrating.

    Isn't it by contract to go reserves?

    well from what i understand, the Army places a certain number of cadets in to AD, and then a certain number in reserves and the national guard.

    this is done with the use of a formula taking into account grades, pms evals, etc.;

    the exception to this is those cadets who were already smp'd or attached to a unit who are "contracted" to serve with that unit upon commission.

    im sure there's some sarcasm there but i'm not pickin it up.
    the general idea is to have "smart ones" and "not so smart ones" equally distributed throughout not only AD/NG/Reserves but also throughout each individual branch.

    :werd: Basically, if you fall in the top 25% on the OML you will get your first choice. If you fall into the 25-50% zone, you will not get what you asked for, even if you ADSO. This is called the "oh shit" zone. The 50-100% will get what they want if they ADSO. Basically distributes the good and the bad throughout the branches. This is how it was explained to us.
