So it's been a few months since I got medically NPQ'd from nuke school and I'll be sending in a redesignation package to a POCR board probably around JAN/FEB timeframe when my medical paperwork comes back from BUMED. I'm really interested in transferring to IW, and have been since I was a midshipman. I ended up getting picked up for subs during ROTC, but it didn't seem to work out for me (I'm still a first year ENS).
I'm asking what my chances would look like for getting picked up by the IW community around that timeframe in 2014?
I reached out to the IW community manager, but he said they're not allowed to discuss quotas, and didn't have a lot of advice for me in general. Unfortunately I don't have a degree in anything computer related. I graduated with a 3.9 GPA in a tier 2 science major, and I'm a prior enlisted Marine with experience working EW systems against the IED threat in Iraq. Those are about the only things I have going for me aside from some solid LORs and my awards from my enlisted time (including combat awards). My number two pick on the wish list is Intel, but I feel like either of those designators is hard to get I imagine, especially with all the downsizing going on. Any advice or input? Thanks!
