I would highly recommend paying close attention to the feedback from last year's board -- soft break outs, milestone completion, timely command qualification completion, and Command and Flag recommendations in your FITREP. Also, recommend reviewing your own record against the convening order, which is currently available on the BUPERS IDC website.

Definitely go back and look at the feedback from previous years and read the board convening orders -- they will say in plain language what the board is told to look for.

I hate to beat a drum, but did see the following in this year's convening order (for IW O5 Command candidates) "Cross detail IDC experience and Post-graduate Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) degrees are valued."

While it is said that graduate STEM degrees are "valued" and not "required", how well does my MA in History and my MA in Legislative Affairs (that I got on my own time & dime) compete against someone with a MS in Electrical Engineering from NPS? If all things are otherwise equal -- based on that verbiage, is the STEM degree ( the "valued" degree) weighed higher?

Would love to know the answer to this, too. I finished a MBA mostly while enlisted and now have been considering post-grad work in International Relations. I tried to get NPS, but was told my APC didn't qualify me for any of our curricula. I'm about to take undergraduate calc and physics on my own, which may be a waste of time at this point, but that's the place I've reached.

Foremost: Accruing knowledge is never a waste ... Period... Degrees, APCs and AQDs aside.

I think in spite of not getting a technical degree an officer can be very competitive based on the criteria I read, am just bothered that our system -- at least in the recent past and at least in my situation seemed to be a bit shadowy. Some of my angst on this is that I tried three times (after my first, second and third tours) to go to NPS, had a high enough AQD to get into a technical program, a PRD that worked to go ... but got various answers on why I was not a candidate. If we are going to have a de facto or unwritten rule; we should just be open and upfront and publish those rules. If I am going to make a decision as an O2 that may close a door to me as an O4 or O5, I want it to be a conscious decision and not an accidental one.

I agree acquiring knowledge is never a waste. It's just prioritizing what knowledge to focus on at any given time, given future goals and current desires and considering the cost, that ends up being important. I'd rather be learning the language of the country I'm currently stationed in (free with TA), but instead I'm taking college trig and the calc series (out of pocket because I don't qualify for TA for these courses) in order to qualify to spend more off time doing a graduate-level technical certification through NPS. I'm willing to put the time in, so it's not really that big of a deal, but if I had a family or other things to occupy my time it would be more challenging.
