  • Looking to be in OCS

    I was looking to join OCS and will be finishing my Bachelors the end of this year. However I have two big concerns:

    1) I have a misdemeanor theft from 2006, my guess is this will be an issue but is it an automatic disqualifier?

    2) I have a lot of student loan debt, none of which has been defaulted but as long as I can defer it, should it be an issue?

    Anything else I can know about OCS please let me know.

    Best thing for you to do is to talk to a recruiter about this stuff. Not just your everyday recruiter either -- talk to officer recruiters. Call the enlisted recruiting office and ask them to route you to the officer office.

    As far as I know, student loan debt shouldn't be a big deal. People join all the time with student loan debt. To be honest, there's actually a program that pays your debt off. Ask the recruiter about it. Also, as far as the misdemeanor goes, I'm pretty sure all you have to do is get a waiver approved for it. As long as it isn't anything horrible, you should be good.

    But again -- talk to an officer recruiter.
