I'm currently trying to apply to OCS for Special Warfare, however, I may not be able to take a PST in time for the March 1, 2012 deadline due to a recent PRK vision correction in November. Rather than wait around until the next application deadline, which could be March 2013 as my recruiter told me, I have been thinking of just enlisting.
I have not talked to my recruiter about this yet due to the holiday season, but I was wondering what other factors affect an candidate who is put into the so called monthly draft for SO contracts. To my knowledge, once a mentor thinks your PST scores are sufficient he submits you package to the selection committee, however do they only look at PST scores or can a college education play any determing factor over someone with similar scores etc?
Thank you for cooperation,
