My name is Kumar and I am a rising sophomore at UCD. I want to apply to OCS as soon as I am eligible, simply because I have wanted to join the Coast Guard since I started high school in 2008. I just joined this forum for advice on how to apply and to get some feedback on my chances of either OCS or DCE.
A little about myself:
I am a Aerospace Engineering Major with a 3.00 GPA
I am a rower on the varsity crew team, and sit on the team leadership council
I am a member of the American Red Cross Club and have been CPR certified
I intern at a local engineering company
In high school, I was a Sea Cadet, which allowed me to attend several leadership trainings at TRACEN Petaluma, and Seamanship training at Camp Pendleton's ACU-5 facility
I am an assistant freshman football coach
I have volunteered at my hometown homeless shelter since 2007
I got a 2030 on the SAT and a 32 on the ACT
Thank you for your time and feedback.
