    Hey everyone!  New to this whole thing, so bear with me.  I'm currently a cyber intel analyst looking to get a little more out of my time on this planet, and make more of a difference in LE and homeland security.  At 36, my options for getting in are rather limited, so I'm applying to the DCIO program, as well as the Reserves.  I just got cleared on medical and am waiting to hear back on a DEPOT and A-School dates (going in as a BM for the Reserves).  

    My question for anyone out there who may be familiar with my kind of situation:

    Would the whole Reserves / DEPOT / A-School route affect my DCIO application process at all?  I want to go active duty, and the DCIO is my only option for that, but I was told that I could also join as a Reservist in the event I don't get accepted in DCIO and still keep applying while at least "getting my foot in the door" as a Reserve BM.


    Hope that makes sense.



    Thanks!

    Haven't decided if I'm going back to the future, or to the past.  Maybe the 1800's.

    That was remarkably helpful...... Or not

    If I read your post correctly, you've submitted a DCIO package and are processing for the Reserves at the same time.  If you don't get selected on this go round for DCIO, the Reserve enlistment process will continue and you'll attend boot camp, A School, and then off to your unit.  Should you get selected for DCIO, you'll have a decision to make, accept the DCIO appointment, or continue the Reserve enlistment process. Also, should you not get selected for DCIO this time, your enlisted Reserve experience can do nothing but help the next time you apply, as it will give you some CG experience before you become an officer.

    Thanks CPORJM.  I would rather go active duty in a field that I have education and experience in, hence the DCIO package, but if I'm going to do Reserves, I figured a break from intel would be more interesting - hence the BM rating.  My recruiter told me last week that he's going to schedule me for the October DEPOT and the Jan '18 BM A-school.    

    Good to hear that at least the Reserves will help my ultimate goal of becoming an officer!  Hopefully sooner than later!
