    Can someone explain this for me? For example if someone has a 2.8 GPA Adso's Signal and has one of the required majors, will they recieve active Duty?

    Did CC lower the GPA to 2.7?

    If a cadet has an academic major that the Signal Corps (SC) desires, the cadet selects SC as 1st preference, has at least a 2.75 GPA, and completes a branch ADSO then they will receive* active duty in SC without a branch detail if they are below the active duty selection line. 50% of the SC branch allocations will be withheld exclusively for cadets with desired degrees. After 50% branch fill is reached, then they'll have to compete for a spot.

    *I believe it's important to note that it does not technically guarantee active duty. For example, if there are 200 allocated SC and 120 cadets have the desired degree and apply for the special branching program, then they'll fill to 100 and the 20 lowest would most likely have to compete. It's highly unlikely to have that many cadets with the desired degree who apply to the program but it's possible, maybe more so in the future with the push for more STEM majors.

    This is pulled straight from the last information I saw back in the OML and branching for FY14 powerpoint. Link for reference. It might have changed or will be changing so if somebody has more current information then feel free to correct what I've posted.
