My life has gone in other directions since then (USCG enlisted, Engineering College), but I am currently in a position to make my goal become a reality. My time spent prior service and the utilization of the Post 9/11 GI Bill has afforded me positive life experiences and educational training. I want to give back to my country and utilize the skills they paid for and I worked hard to receive.

Does anyone have any insight into age waiver requirements, especially pertaining to prior enlisted applicants? I have scoured this forum and found a few interesting tidbits. I am still in the early phases the process and I know that I will not be shipping off to BCT by the age of 33. With that said, I have a large portion of my packet complete. I am waiting on MEPS to review my 2807-2.

Thank you in advance,
