    @Armyhealth Hello! I just submitted my application for the 70B AD October boards and despite the fact that I have yet to complete my health exam and finger prints, due to the fact that I am working abroad at the moment I will very soon -- once I return to the states.
    I would like to get an idea of what my chances may be getting into 70B. I graduated with a 3.18 GPA Bachelor's in Education and pursued other academic opportunities prior to college and afterwards. I submitted my application with a strong essay and reference letters and have a clean record and will not need any waivers. I know that this is very vague information, but I am a bit nervous as my GPA is not a strong as I would like it to be.

    One last question. Once I get accepted into the STRAP program I heard that I will be able to get Loan repayment and my stpeind at the same time. My recuiter told me that they do not offer this anymore but I’m not sure about this. Is there anyway I can verify this before I move on with my application

    Hi Raquel,

    As of now there is no active duty slots for 70B for next year. That may change but as of now we are only taking applications for reserves. You could always apply for the reserves and then apply for AGR (active guard reserves) if you really want active duty. Last year was the first time they opened active duty slots for 70B in a few years. As far as competiveness, as long as you get everything in on time you have a good shot. GPA is just a small portion of what they are looking for and if you have post-bach work that helps.

    You can still get stipend and loan repayment at the same time. The only reason you couldn't get loan repayment is if you already have participated in another incentive before STRAP like HPSP or MDSSP.

    Does anyone know when the next Army boards are? My recruiter originally told me September, but isn’t getting back to me with specifics and I’ve been hearing different things from different people...

    Most likely the scroll, I can't tell you without looking at your packet though.
