Does anyone know the requirements to get into officer school? Also, does a sailor have to be active or can they be a reservist? My son has his bachelors degree, one masters and is almost finished with his second master degree. Unfortunately when he was at DEP, the Leiutenant (I know the spelling is wrong), left 1/2 way through the process and another Leiutenant was assign to my son. However, my sons ship date was 11/16 and this new Leiutenant said that they needed to get everything completed by 11/24. Obviously, this was an issue and bc of that my son didn't even get to begin the process! I would love any information regarding Officer Candidate School.
