Today is the day!!!!! FY 2013 AMEDD AD RN

  1. 0 November 5, 2012. The board should be convening today. Good luck to all that have applied. My wife is so nervous and very worried. They are only taking a very few, and she has super high hopes. They are boarding her as a 1st Lt. as we finally found out. I hope that if anyone has news from the board they just start posting it here, so we can all know. From what I hear there are only 20 over all being selected, but my wifes recruiter said "Remember, they can select as many as they want!". Not sure exactly what that means, except that the 20 is a guideline of how many they "need" and if they want to grab more they can.

    Well once again good luck to all that have applied. As a veteran myself, I can say the Army was good to me, and I had the time of my life while i was in.

    I had heard low numbers of 25-40 but not only 20. Did this info come from your recruiter? I am glad I am already in with numbers like that.

    yes the official numbers were, 10 candidates with less than 2 years exp, and 10 with more than 2 years. Of course they can take more, but yes those were the numbers. I think the 10 with less than 2 years experience is really just a nice way of saying, we need 10 young nurses, but will also take 10 older ones lol. I am not sure of that just saying lol.

    Wow...I truly didn't have insight into those numbers. I am starting to believe after reading these forums I may have better odds of winning the lottery! Well...I guess we wait and see what happens...wish everyone the absolute best of luck down this path!!!

    How will being selected for COT play into USAGPAN? Will you simply leave active duty, complete school, and return to active duty? Good luck to you as well...

    Anyone got anymore insight into the board? I also got in to USAGPAN for 2013 but was told I just made the OML and was not selected. I am VERY disappointed to say the least. It is actually very depressing for me because I wanted this more than anything. As a prior service infantryman with 2 combat tours the Army is something that I am extremely passionate about. I wanted the chance to serve again. Now it is a waiting game because I was told the only way I will get to attend the school is if someone on the list decides they do not want to join and then I can be moved up. I was told by my recruiter that they selected 10 and 3 made the OML. They do not release what number you are on the OML however. Anyway, hope everyone got better news than I did.
