    To all that have made it I would inform your supervisors very soon that you have been picked up for the Army. When you do tell them let them know that you do not know when you will be leaving for OBLC. It is always best to keep your employer informed about you leaving and put in your offical notice as soon as you get your orders. Also, even if you think that you will be making the Army a career do not quit your job and take military leave. The reason for this is if you get out before 5 years you will still have a job with that employer. You just do not know what might happen, you could decide that the Army is not your you, the military downsizes some more or you get injuried and get medically discharged. Some employers might try to make you quit but when you put in your notice have in it that you are taking military leave. It is your right under federal law and use it.

    Thank you for this info Jeck. Question, when would you be eligible to board for major? If you are a Majr, just wondering how long you were captain? 6-8 years?

    I am still waiting to be scrolled too. Last week my recruiter told me it could take 1-2 weeks, but today he said it could take 30-90 days! Uh!! I am not waiting on any waivers, so I'm not sure what the hold up is.

    IrishLiz, thanks I'm really hoping that is the case too! I am rooting for you and VT to hear something good about the oml...the Army would be better for it!

    - Maybe since I am still a student and don't have any work experience it took a shorter amount of time?

    Regarding giving notice to employers, I agree with jeckrn -- it's best to be up-front with your employers about it and let them know now. My managers wrote my letters of recommendation, so they knew the whole time what my goals were, and they were supportive. I realize not all situations will be the same, but the sooner they know, the better. Chances are you'll be leaving for BOLC in March. I personally didn't get my orders until March, but put in my notice anyway -- at least at my fulltime job, I held on to my PRN job a little longer just in case. Hopefully your employers will be very proud of you, as being selected speaks to the quality of their choice of employee, especially in times that are so competitive.

    MTB, If you are not on the OML and you were not a non-select then you are one of the ten selects. There are only three options... The known lists are non-select and OML. If you are not on one of those then there is only one other option.

    DaniRN, i am on the same boat. My recruiter told me i was selected but with pending waivers. I am currently active duty soldier. When i asked them what the waiver was for. He told me that it could just be scrolling, he did not tell me what specific waiver it was. Can scrolling be considered as a waiver? Since, I am already enlisted, most of my stuff should be good (at least that's what i assume). He told me to call back sometimes next week to find out more. And also i guess nobody knows how long does this scrolling takes. Other than that i am ready for San Antonio. Its beautiful out there.

    VT, that its true but until I have a confirmation I'm not going to say I'm in. I'm most likely selected for the program and excited as all heck, though! I'm pending further confirmation or whatever they are doing with my app at this point, so I'm just waiting for the final word until I go out and celebrate.
