    How hard is it to get into OCS? Also what would my chances be to become a 31a from OCS? Is the position of 31a competitive like the medical mos’ are? And is military police considered to be a combat branch?

    Don't know about OCS or 31A.

    There are three categories of branches: Combat, Combat Support, and Combat Service Support. Military Police is a Combat Support branch

    Warhead,

    I mean this with kindness, but how old are you? Are you a senior in HS looking into ROTC or a junior in college?

    OCS has the same medical qualification requirements, you would still need to go through the Dodmerb process. What ever issues you have with medical regarding ROTC will be the same issues with OCS. The only plus would be that you could be off the meds for a longer time before applying to OCS.

    Ok so is OCS hard to get into and what would be the probability of me getting the job I want if I do good in OCS? I know it is based also on the needs of the Army.

    Warhead,

    Get your medical health in order first. You are putting the cart before the horse in many ways.
    1. Medically
    2. Academics/education
    ~ Can't go OCS without a college degree
