    It’s usally a detractor, but the write up can counter. Showing progression is important. Ultimately it will also come down to your rates opportunity to move up. Good luck on the test.

    No. Your exam score is based on the number of questions answered correctly. The purpose of the exam is to measure general rating knowledge, and scores are a numerical representation of how well you did compared to peers taking the same exam. Candidates who answer the most questions correctly, in each rating, get a Standard Score of 80.

    The selection board section in my continuity report in BOL no longer shows MSC, I assume the board has adjourned. Hopefully we can see the quotas shortly.

    Hello everyone, Been following this forum for years now, so I finally got the courage to create a profile lol. I've been in the Navy 12.5 years now and just submitted my package for the first time (FY 18 HCA). The process was grueling, but luckily one of my good friends over the years made it off of the FY 17 MSC IPP selection for HCA. I'm going for direct with a Bachelor's in HCM from SIU, currently working on my MHA from VCU and MHI from University of Cincinnati. I was able to get three 0-6 interview appraisals, Medical Logistics Specialty Leader, one Assistant Specialty leader HCA, and an XO of a large hospital. For the LORs, Optometry Specialty leader, XO of FHCC Great Lakes, and another Asst Specialty leader in Optometry that is now assigned to BUMED. All Optometrist who I worked under before, yes I'm a Navy Optician, hope I didn't write too much.

    The Navy Advancement Center is on schedule to provide the Chief of Naval Personnel with E4-E6 advancement planning data for the Reserve Cycle 101 and Active Duty Cycle 236 quota builds. At this time, results are scheduled to be released during the week of Thanksgiving. Total Force E4-E6 advancement cycle results will first be released to Triads, then published to individual Profile Sheets and All Hands the following day.

    This is just a repost from FY18 DA HCA thread.. but I just wanted to share my experience once I got selected in Feb 2017 now that I have gone through ODS and finally stationed. In terms of the other HCAs who I met at ODS who were selected.. some were very clever and they were prior enlisted who applied for both IPP and DA which took up slots for both programs which I believe contributes to some alternates getting picked up later down the road and the alternate list moving up fast once the Navy figures these things out. The other interesting thing was how experienced a lot of the selectees were. I think out of all the HCAs I met only 1 had a bachelors and that person was a prior the rest all had Masters. Some were former Senior chiefs or Chiefs with lots of service ribbons which were very impressive. Another was a former Airforce guy that transferred into the Navy and another was a Navy Seal. When you talk to people you realize that the interviews, personal letters of recommendation from people who are well connected in the Navy aka CAPTs and CDRs seemed to hold a lot of weight in differentiating all the good applicants. So I would really focus on doing really well on those things or coming across very accomplished with lots of quality healthcare admin leadership experience on paper. You cant be like I was a Assistant secretary to the director who helped the director file paperwork. It needs to be like I was the Assistant secretary who researched and drafted the 65 page policy directive which was signed by Councilman XYZ for low-income people and I Co-chaired the townhall meetings on XYZ . Another thing I would say is that it is better to come in as a lower rank (ENS or LTJG) because you get time to make your self look good for the LTCDR Board Promotion which is the promotion everyone has trouble getting because it isnt guaranteed.
