It's been awhile since I visited this site, but I found out today that I was passed over for O3 from my XO. I did not have any adverse OER numbers, so unsure why I was passed over. Luckily, I am entitled to the Post 9/11 GI Bill, have another board for O3 to go up for, and a year and a half to go before I would ETS. I'm a big saver so have been doing well on that front (and could have a significant cushion for when I do transition). I'll be able to take a good chunk of terminal leave as well if I do ETS in 2019; I have over 40 days of leave currently and can save up to 60 by spring/summer 2019. Has anyone ever faced this situation before? If so, how did you proceed? I would like to do graduate/professional school next with my GI Bill but am still weighing program options. I have an engineering degree but am not very interested in continuing on using it. Thanks everyone!
