"This problem deserves rapt attention because getting the quality of the force wrong—unknowingly keeping in less capable leaders while losing the best and brightest talent—could have debilitating effects on fighting and winning the complex wars of the future."

"Uncounted numbers of junior officers leave the military because they simply see a career pipeline that will force them down a path where they do not want to go—or force their spouse to give up a valued job or even a career in order to move. Even those who want to command and move to the top of the force are confronted with the unalterable long climb through years of unrelated assignments with little prospect for accelerated promotions, no matter how talented."

"...many of the best and brightest must leave the military in order to receive the best graduate education that this country has to offer."

Never even heard of that program, nor have I seen instructions from the IDC on applying, but saw that today as I was going through NAVADMINs.
