    I am 46 & have been told by the Army Reserve recruiter that I can still apply with an age waiver so 36 should be no problem I think the cut off without a waiver is 42.

    What the age limit today is can change by the time you are done with your BSN. Right now no one really knows what's going to happen with the federal budget which will dictate what the end strength and mix of the military will be. Right now waivers of any type are hard to come by because it is so competitive. I do not want to discourage you, I only want you to know what is going on. If you never try you will never get in. One way to make your self competitive is by keeping your GPA as I as possible.
