    Hey guys/gals,

    Just curious of what a good GPA would be for someone with a STEM major (Engineering) trying to get AD.
    Obviously I'm trying my hardest but Calculous, physics, and all that is not made to be easy.
    If anyone could chime in with experience or know anything that would be awesome. Thank you. I'm on a 4-year scholarship as well (not sure if that would have any impact on my OML)

    higher is better. There is no telling what GPA will get you active duty in 3 years, so do the best you can. If you want to hedge your bet then you need to make sure you are looking for all the OML points you can get. CULP, color guard, other extra curriculars are all important. My school is about 50% STEM. 10 of our 15 MS 4s got active this year. Some of them didn't have phenomenal GPAs, but they all did well on the test at CLC and they all had plenty of OML points.

    "Harder" majors get extra points in the OML calculation.
    Search for it you will find it.
    People have been trying to game the system since it started. You can not.
    Do every task as if it was the most important thing in the world.
    In the end you will end up where you should be.
    Remember the job the Army gives you it not about you, it is about the Army.
    Giving people what they want is not the top priority.
