Anyone else on the fence about applying again after receiving a string of ‘Non-selects’?  If any 6330/7331 LDOs or CWOs would like to look at my last few packages I’d appreciate the feedback :)    Thanks!

I’m on the fence and leaning greatly towards not applying. This was my 4th “N” for 7331, with 4 other previous applications for 6330 & 1520.

This was my 3rd 7331 with a previous 3 6330 packages and then a STA-21 package a few years back as well...I’m thinking it might be a sign lol.  1520 was rough this year, I heard they had over 120 applicants for 4 spots

This was my first time applying for 633X. Hopefully this next one I’ll have more to offer in my package. Just gotta keep trying.

Thinking this may be my first year. Looking at nuke as it is my only choice. Very streamlined process for the application though.

I love the idea of being a warrant and continuing to serve in the wardroom, but frankly the benefits are no longer outweighing the cost. When I started my string of Ns I was coming back on sea duty, but now FY20 is the year I rotate back to shore after this sea tour... I don’t think I’m interested in dong this sea tour and then going right back to sea for another 5 years guaranteed. Hell, I’d be adding 3 years obliserv past what I can retire at now. Call me what you will, but being a mustang won’t be as fun when I continue to miss life events at home...

I'd be honored to look through any 6330/7330 applications and provide you with some grounded feedback about your package.  Send PM with your email address, and ill shoot you an email via NMCI with what I'd like to you to email over.

And @T56ADCS, every year you don't apply is an opportunity lost.  If its your goal, let the Navy tell you no until you cannot apply any longer.  Just my unsolicited $0.02.

Thank you kindly for that. This is the kind of motivation that keeps this forum going. BBb)

@osiris0107, @Teaguemonie, @AMCSTack, @H60ATC

I should be caught up on PM's; all of you received an encrypted email on the NMCI side of the house.  When you get a chance, shoot me the requested paperwork.

Has anyone heard anything about the release of the number of applicants for each designator yet? they normally put it out after the results.

It’ll generally come out whenever the applicant brief comes out.

@McMustang6330 do you have the results for the SELRES/FTS board? I've always had a hard time finding the data for that.

Sorry for the delay here, been out for a few.  I don't have it, but I will see if I can track it down.

This should be what you are looking for @Tytanium.  I pulled them from the FTS/Reserve Applicant Brief, which has additional information you might be interested  in as well

First time applicant for the 681X designator. Been in 8 years and four of those are NSW, with at least two more left. Korean Linguist with time served on the watch floor in Korea. Really excited to begin this journey toward LDO and to learn from everyone on this site.

I would encourage anyone who wants to be a LDO/CWO to submit a package. Do not be discouraged at previous "N's." I was passed over for Chief six times, DIRCOM twice, and LDO twice. I reached out to those that were selected, asked Chiefs, CWOs, and Officers from various disciplines to review my package, and by the 50th rewrite, submitted a package I thought could still use some fine tuning and was asking for a huge TIS waiver. Just when I was ready to start updating my information for the next year's application, the Admiral called me to his office to inform me of my selection.

INTEL lost it's LDO program this year. Other LDO programs seem likely to follow that trend in the near future. Some CWO programs are on shaky ground too. Fellow First Classes that decided to wait another year before applying, have missed out because his/her program cancelled the following year. You lose nothing by applying.

If I can be of assistance, one more filter to look things over, I will gladly offer what I can. Send me a message and we'll take it off-line.

Does anyone know where it states that a member has to formally request to apply for the LDO program. My last command every year made me submit a request chit to CO. My new command is asking me if this is even necessary. Just looking for it in black and white.

I would like to apply but I am an NC (CRF) now and we dont have a LDO/CWO path. Plus I am at 15 years so last year was it for me. I have looked at OCS paths but due to age (35) PAO and Intel are the only ones available and I dont have the experience or proper degree for Intel, and PAO is a long-shot.

Even looked into the HR community until I found out they only have a reserve HR commissioning available and I am active duty.
