    I've been doing much research on the subject and I hear its 30 for nonprior service with wiggle room ranging from 31 - 34. I am in my mid year of 29 and latter part of my sophmore year, so I basically have only 6 semesters (including summers) to load up. Graduation before 32 is very possible but I would prefer not to rush if I don't need to, naturally. I want to know, whats the REAL reg for Age waivers? Is this case specific?

    What branch? If it is AF, I would say there is no chance in the current conditions that they will grant an age waiver. Currently, AFROTC is even releasing cadets that missed the gpa by a small margin. This is all due to the RIF, but it will probably be like this for the next few yrs.

    Wow, they must have bumped up the age for OCS cause when I was with 3/11 the absolute max was 36. Thanks a ton, now I know that I don't have to rush through this, alls I've got to sweat is the MERB and I'll be absolutely golden.

    Holy...........!! I'm truly glad that age shouldn't factor into this. To think I was almost going to compromise my Biochem major for a Chemistry major cause it would have shortened the requirement so I could rush to make a deadline of 31 yrs of age. Now I know.....

    STANDARDS, NO COMPROMISE!!!

    still remains.
