FY 11 National OML and AD Selection
There were 23 Cadets that achieved a perfect 101.5 OMS score.
Any cadet with an OMS below 71.5848 did not get active duty, unless they were a nurse, G2G or SMC cadet.
1. Branch the Top 10% of the AD OML with their first basic branch choice
2. Branch by OML until up to 50% of each branch’s requirements are filled
3. Branch remainder of the branch with an additional three-year ADSO
4. DA Board awards branches to Cadets not receiving branch via steps 1-3
- Needs of the Army, distribute quality, Cadets Branch choices
first half of the AD OML
step 4 cadets and branch detailing for all
If I am the bottom 20% of the Active Duty OML or in the “dead zone” (just above the 50th percentile) I should not even choose a popular branch like AV, IN or AR.
RULE #1: The only certainty in selection and branching is that if you fail to request what you desire, then you will not get what you desire.
Although branch fill rates and cut-offs tend to stay consistent from year to year there can be exceptions. For the FY09 Cohort there was barely enough Cadets requesting Aviation “AV” with Branch ADSO to fill the requirement. “AV” did not fill until the 98th percentile in FY09.
Recommendation: Make your first Branch Choice what you truly desire and sign a Branch Career Satisfaction Program Incentive (formerly Branch ADSO) if you strongly desire. ADSO’s are only charged if needed to get the branch. Be more realistic with second and third branch choice based on your desires and standing on the Active Duty OML.
FOR REFERENCE ONLY Actual FY11 Values Can Vary Significantly
AD OML Percentile Standing
Percent Fill of Pre-Branch Allocation
Total ROTC Allocation
Branches that had Pre-branching due to Aviation Program UND or Required Medical Specialties.
Branches that had Pre-branch Allocations reduced to ensure 10% of Branch to DABM
Cadets with Engineer Degrees, 50% of “EN” allocation considered to degreed engineers only
* Per Office of the Surgeon General MOI dated 25 Aug 2010, authorization was given to exceed 50 AMEDD selections and use allocations not use by The Judge Advocate General’s Corps (JAGC) or the Chaplain’s Corps (CH) for AMEDD provided the total selected for Educational Delay (ED ) does not exceed 130 Cadets.
Percent of Basic Branch required to be detailed
Percent Detailed reduced from FY10, USMA/OCS took increased portion, and reduced “AD” branch mission
2169 of 2935 Cadets asked to participate in an ADSO option. Total Selected 1520 (with Pending Post ADSO’s)
All Post ADSO requests subject to HRC branch/location.
BRADSO data is as of: 21 OCT 2010
AD Line was at #3734, 95.49%.
Below that was all the G2G, SMC and Nurses who fell below the AD line but were required to go AD.
All Cadets/LTs selected for Active Duty may be selected for the Branch Detail Program, regardless of volunteer status
All cadets must select a branch detail branch, in case they are selected for branch detail.
Your comments (PMS and Cadet’s) are used to determine Branch Detail desires and positions.
Availability of Branch Detail Program options are subject to force structural changes within the Army
Developed to account for the shifting demand for officers within the MFE (Maneuver Fires and Effects) and OS/FS (Operational Support / Force Sustainment) branches between the ranks of 2LT and CPT
These were the branches from FY11’s board. Donor branches may change from year to year.
SERVE 3-4 YRS IN INFANTRY UNIT
Step 1 – Cadet requests USAR or National Guard (“Dedicated” cadets have no option)
Step 2 – Cadet secures a slot in a unit (USAR uses the “Request” system, NG uses the LOA system)
a. Both of these steps are done BY THE CADET
b. LOA in Indiana is a Conditional LOA, and INARNG holds an OML board for branching its officers
Step 3 – After the Branching/Component Board, Cadets have 30 days to secure their slot
a. Sooner is better – slots are limited to allocations!
