I do not see LDOs included in that number. As far as I know a CT can go through... Academy - 2 (if you are RL) STA- 6 OCS- 18 ROTC- I must admit im not sure how it works. 24/28 at least for a direct accession. Sounds like plenty of wiggle room for CTs to get in or I am grossly misunderstanding. USN...

Only 18 slots for all the OCS applicants, both in-fleet and from the civilian side? Wow. That doesn't leave much room for the in-fleet enlisted sailor looking to leverage his CT experience in the IW community. We've all heard about the "problems" at the O-4/O-5 level supposedly caused by the fact th...

Thanks for the great reply! ... info straight from the source is always nice. DLI is a great opportunity and literally was the most difficult thing I've ever done. Korean 7 or 8 hours a day (plus homework) was stressful, but definitely rewarding. The experience would probably be different as an offi...

Regional Studies at NPS

I've been hearing about Regional Studies billets at NPS opening for IW for a while now, but no one seems to know one way or another if that's been officially approved and billets alloted. Anyone here have any info about it? I saw a power point slide recently with some numbers, but there wasn't much ...

I think those experiences need to be better defined. What do you mean by detailing ourselves? I had a department head sit me down before I went to OCS to explain to me the difference between specializing and remaining a general IW officer and some of the advantages and disadvantages of doing each. ...

The flexibility in the detailing process and our ability to detail ourselves and still get the experience to be competitive come promotion time is one of the biggest advantages to being an IW officer, in my opinion. I'm not sure I really want very clear and "required" wickets.

I've heard that too... in addition to the more traditional "9-12 months out" mentality. That's why I figured I'd ask and see what everyone thought. I had a nice sit-down with a prior enlisted LCDR from the War College while I was at OCS. He was on the "talk to the detailer asap if you want something...

Great advice from the webmaster! I'd also offer that you should address two things when communicating with the detailer... 1) How is your desired billet good for the Navy (e.g. My experiences at NIOC HI have familiarized me with Fleet IW/Cryptology and the Pacific AOR, which uniquely prepares me to...
