So I'm an AS300 who got a CSO slot recently and I have a question. Before FT I told my previous det commander I wanted to shoot for ALO, and he made it sound like if I took a rated EA I'd have a much better chance of going to FT so, respecting his insight, I went with a rated EA. When I came back we had a new commander and I was told I had 2 windows per year to apply for ALO, so I figured I would do everything I could to make myself a better candidate and apply later. Once rated slots came out I found out I got a CSO slot and had to sign for it, the way they put it was if I didn't sign I'd be investigated for disenrollment, so I signed cause I didn't want to get the boot, even though I expressed what I wanted to do. I never got a straight answer about applying for ALO now and was wondering if I still can while in ROTC or once I go on AD? And how would I go about the process? Any help would be greatly appreciated, I'm starting to feel like I may have been pigeonholed.
