This question would be for those who already have someone at OCS. How long after the officer application is complete & where it needs to be does it take to hear back whether a commission has been granted? My son's officer recruiter said he received confirmation that his application for SWO was received by the board or in cue for review by the board on Feb 7th so it's been 2 weeks now. Is there an average wait time? Thanks!
Do you mean it was being reviewed by the Feb 7th board or that it was received by the board on Feb 7th? Packages are due to the board about a month before the board meets. If he was good for the Feb board he should hear any day. If it was received on the 7th he will go to the next board, which should be in April.
Thanks for the reply Mary. We were told that his packet would be reviewed by the Feb board. He had to have his packet to his officer recruiter by Jan 16th & then the text from his OR on Feb 7th was that my son's packet was confirmed received wherever it was supposed to be for the Feb 10th board. His OR told us we should hear mid-Feb so we're going a bit stir crazy waiting to hear. :)
My daughter graduated from OCS January 24th.. and it took almost a year from start of application before she was selected and swore in.. she is in Supply which takes longer than SWO.
Good Luck to your son... Maria
