Accessions Briefing - College of Technology

Report
Accessions Process
Fiscal Year 2012
Applies to Cadets Receiving
Their Commissioning in:
Dec 2011
May 2012
Aug 2012
Briefing updated: 10 Apr 2011
Scholar-Athlete-Leader
• A military officer must be a scholar, athlete and leader (SAL).
• We commission SALs, and only SALs. Cadets must have the “full
package”, and be accomplished and competent in all three areas.
– If your GPA is below a 2.5 – you are at risk of commissioning
– If your APFT scores are below a 80-80-80 – you are at risk of commissioning
– If you get an N at LDAC, or have many Ns on your Blue Cards – you are at risk
• Cadets compete on their own merits and accomplishments against
over 5,000 other cadets commissioning in that same “cohort” year
group (Oct 11 – Sep 12)
• Your Grades, LDAC Performance and APFT Scores comprise ~75%
of your accessions score, and is how you compete for:
– Branch
- Branch Detailing
– Post
- ADSOs
– Grad School
– Component
• Active Duty, National Guard, Reserves
Terms and Topics
• ACCESSIONS – the process we use to bring cadets into the Army
formally, and assign them to their component and their branch
• CCIMS – the database we use to input all your info and requests
• LAMS – Leader Assessment Sheet that captures all aspects of the
mathematical OMS information
• OMS – Order of Merit Score, the result of all your academic, athletic
and leadership scores, using the OML percentages, that is used to
compare you against the other 4,000 cadets going thru accessions that
year
• OML – a one-to-last listing of cadets, based on the OMS
• DMG – Distinguished Military Graduate, designated for the top 20% of
cadets in the nation. Usually guarantees your first branch choice
• Active Duty Cutoff Line – a defined OMS that sets the minimum scoring
for active duty selection. Below that score, AD is not possible.
• “Dead Zone” – the area on the branch bar graph where it is impossible
for a cadet to receive a certain branch.

FY11 Order of Merit Scores
FY 11 National OML and AD Selection
There were 23 Cadets that achieved a perfect 101.5 OMS score.
Any cadet with an OMS below 71.5848 did not get active duty, unless
they were a nurse, G2G or SMC cadet.
Active Duty Accession Process
1. Branch the Top 10% of the AD OML with their first basic branch choice
2. Branch by OML until up to 50% of each branch’s requirements are filled
a. If the first branch preference is unavailable, the next available branch
preference of the Cadet will be awarded (2nd and 3rd Choice Only)
b. Cadet may volunteer for the Branch for ADSO program, but they won’t be
charged until after branch filled to 50%
3. Branch remainder of the branch with an additional three-year ADSO
a. By OML
b. Ensuring that no more than 65% of any one branch’s allocation are filled by
the first half of the AD OML
4. DA Board awards branches to Cadets not receiving branch via steps 1-3
a. DA Branching Model produces initial distribution of branch assignments for
those branches not filled to 100% with steps 1-3
- Needs of the Army, distribute quality, Cadets Branch choices
- Ensuring that no more than 65% of any one branch’s requirements are filled by the
first half of the AD OML
b. Cadet’s first two choices are still viable IF, and only if, they were BRADSO
c. DA branching board determines final branch assignment for
step 4 cadets and branch detailing for all
True or False
If I am the bottom 20%
of the Active Duty
OML or in the “dead
zone” (just above the
50th percentile) I
should not even
choose a popular
branch like AV, IN or
AR.
TRUE
FALSE
FALSE
RULE #1: The only certainty in selection and branching is
that if you fail to request what you desire, then you will
not get what you desire.
Although branch fill rates and cut-offs tend to stay consistent from year to
year there can be exceptions. For the FY09 Cohort there was barely enough
Cadets requesting Aviation “AV” with Branch ADSO to fill the requirement.
“AV” did not fill until the 98th percentile in FY09.
Recommendation: Make your first Branch Choice what
you truly desire and sign a Branch Career Satisfaction
Program Incentive (formerly Branch ADSO) if you
strongly desire. ADSO’s are only charged if needed to
get the branch. Be more realistic with second and third
branch choice based on your desires and standing on the
Active Duty OML.
FY 11 Branch Fill Rates
FOR REFERENCE ONLY Actual FY11 Values Can Vary Significantly
• The following chart displays where on the Active Duty OML, each branch
filled for the FY11 Cohort for pre-branching (Methods 1 to 3)
• Color codes show where each branch filled for this cohort:
– Up to 50% of the allocation was filled without using a cadet’s ADSO
– Branched with ADSO in the top half of the OML
– Branched with ADSO in the bottom half of the OML
• Highlights for Active Branching in FY11
- As in FY10 branching, DA directed that all branches with the exception of “AV” have at
least 10% of the total ROTC branch requirement go to DA Branching Model. As a result
allocations available for pre-branching were reduced for some branches.
- Also continued from FY10 was the “Engineer Pilot Program”. This program took half of
the “EN” Branch allocations and made them available to “degreed Engineers” only using
same branching process.
- ROTC Allocations for “IN” and “OD” branch were proportionally larger than last year.
While this change made “IN” easier to secure, “OD” branch had similar fill rate as FY10.
- “MS” and “TC” branches both had proportionally less allocations then last year and
both became more difficult to secure as a result.

Branch Detail Program
All Cadets/LTs selected for Active Duty may be selected for
the Branch Detail Program, regardless of volunteer status
All cadets must select a branch detail branch, in case they
are selected for branch detail.
Your comments (PMS and Cadet’s) are used to determine
Branch Detail desires and positions.
Availability of Branch Detail
Program options are subject to
force structural changes within
the Army
Branch Detail Program (con’t)
Developed to account for the shifting demand for officers within the MFE

Officer Career Incentive Programs
(ADSO/Dual ADSO Programs)
 Only Cadets selected for Active Duty are eligible
 Selection is based on the National OML . For BRADSO, if you “earned”
your branch outright, you will not be “charged” an ADSO, even if you
requested it.
 Cadets may request to participate in 1, 2, or all 3
 Cadets may be selected in up to two of the programs
 Participation in each program is in exchange for an additional 3-year Active
Duty Service Obligation (ADSO)
Branch for Service - Receive their branch of choice
Post for Service - Receive their first assignment of choice
Graduate School for Service - Attend full time, fully funded Grad Program between years 7-11
 At time of request, Cadets must sign a contract addendum
 The new Post 9/11 GI Bill makes this a VERY attractive option, since
staying on active duty for 3 years beyond any “educational payback period”
will earn you full college benefits (for you or your family). So…BRADSO,
PADSO, GRADSO 3-yr periods are “good” years and earn you full benefits.
Graduate School for ADSO
 300 Cadets can participate (approximately)
 Guaranteed Option to attend Graduate School (up to 24 months)
 Outside of this program only about 1 in 10 graduates receive fully funded
Graduate School (Advanced Civilian Schooling)
 Officer determines attendance: When, What, Where
•
In almost any program of choice from a broad slate of disciplines
•
At any accredited institution within the US as approved by HRC
 After attendance, 3 for 1 payback (additional active duty time). If you attend
grad school in later years, you can pay back your obligation before you attend.
 The Post 9/11 GI Bill is amazing, and complements this option nicely. 3 years
of active duty (beyond any “educational payback time”) will earn you full
benefits for you or your family.
http://www.gibill.va.gov/documents/Breakdown_of_the_monetary_benefits_under_the
_various_GI_Bills.pdf
 A great website is located at:
 http://www.career-satisfaction.army.mil/
Student Loan Repayment Program
(SLRP)
• In exchange for more years of active duty, the Army will “assume” your
higher education loan and pay it off for you.
• Deadlines to sign up for this:
• 1 Nov (for Dec grads)
• 1 Mar (for May/Aug grads)
• You sign up for this about before you graduate/commission
• Up to $25k – one year
• Up to $50k – two years
• Up to $65k – three years
• You will sign an addendum to your contract once the SLRP request is
approved, and DA agrees to assume your loan.
• The USAA Career Starter Loan does NOT count for SLRP.
•SLRP payback years are NOT GI Bill earning years.
Reserve Component
Accession Process
Step 1 – Cadet requests USAR or National Guard
(“Dedicated” cadets have no option)
Step 2 – Cadet secures a slot in a unit (USAR uses the
“Request” system, NG uses the LOA system)
a. Both of these steps are done BY THE CADET
b. LOA in Indiana is a Conditional LOA, and INARNG
holds an OML board for branching its officers
Step 3 – After the Branching/Component Board, Cadets
have 30 days to secure their slot
a. Sooner is better – slots are limited to allocations!
