"Hypothetical" situation - you're a current MSIV, engineering major, attended LDAC summer of 14, but will not graduate until December '15 due to engineering course requirements, etc. ADSO'd for Engineer Branch, have approx a 3.0, so qualify for the special programs/guaranteed active duty, etc. Life is good. Now, however, due to changes to the FY16 OML calculation, i.e. the removal of ROTC courses from the GPA calculation, you no longer have the 2.75 required to get guaranteed AD through the special program. Not only that, but since all new additions to your OML score ended upon attendance at LDAC/CLC, you aren't able to do the other things now required to improve your score - public speaking, published papers, etc. So, in a nutshell, you've just been "re-calculated" out of your guaranteed AD slot/branch. Is there any recourse for a cadet facing this situation? I'm usually the first to jump on the "your OML score is 100% in your control" soapbox, but in this case, it clearly isn't. The cadet did everything required per the regulations in effect until, of course, they changed. Does anyone know if exceptions might possibly be made for cadets finding themselves caught between two drastically different OML models?
