Rated Package

Recommended Posts

When developing your package in ROTC for the Active Duty board, are there any factors that are put into your package that are outside of ROTC? Things like being a president of a student organization or any other type of leadership position. Was just curious so that I can prepare for the future.

Look into order of merit for UPT selection. A substantial portion of the OM is commander's ranking. That's the only place those other activities to potentially come into play.

If you're still in high school, choose a few extra curriculars that you will stick with and excel at. If you're in college, your time is best spent on not being a reliable cadet, having a good PFT score, and having a decent (3.0 GPA). It's a balance, though. Don't wholly sacrifice one category for another. I saw a number of guys in college try to be involved in everything the detachment did only to lose sight of the other categories and get kicked out of ROTC for a bad GPA. On the other end of the spectrum, "ghost cadets" also didn't fare well.
