    I figured I'd start a thread following those of us applying for OCS-R in this summer of 2019. Applications I know are due May 31 2019 and board will hold interviews in the first week of June 2019. This could be a good spot to house questions/updates for people in this cycle.

    It's my first time applying after waiting the long waiver period after getting PRK the previous summer of 2018. My recruiter told me applications are due at the end of this month and all interviews should be held during the first week of June. 

    Would love to hear everyone involved and their backgrounds and updates from their recruiters.

    I interviewed 1.5 yrs ago, this is the last panel my interview is good on, and the third I'm applying to. From my experience, the interview is mainly based on your previous experiences, expect the panel to be VERY familiar with your package, so you better be too. The best advice I received during my first application was "know your story", meaning not needing references to talk about your experiences. Beyond normal leadership and management questions, my questions mostly started by them referencing something in my package and asking me to elaborate or a specific question about it.

    To piggyback, the interview is about YOU. The questions are centered around what you put in your package. My recruiter wants me to interview again for the September deadline however, he is accepting my interview from december 2018 for the ocs-r deadline.

    Your interview is the most important part of the packet that the board looks at. If your recruiter wants you to redo the interview he/she is probably trying to tell you that you have room to improve there.

    I spoke with some members that are going to conduct my interview and they said it will be relax and conversational, they are just trying to see who I am as a person and If they could see me leading and'or working for them. Told me to bring donuts and coffee lol.

    Pretty sure deadline for this class was May 31. Board meets in late July and decision won’t come until September or even early October is what my recruiter told me. 

    Got my interview tomorrow! I’ve heard they want to know if you’re really just a “good person” or not. Very relaxed.
