    Is there a way to become a Reserve Officer without being Enlisted? I have a bachelor's degree (2.98 GPA). I graduated in 2012. I'm 33yo.

    I went to a recruiter and they said I had to be Enlisted then put in a packet to apply for OCS.

    Is there a way to "bypass" being Enlisted? Is there a way I can contact an Officer Recruiter?

    A friend of mine (former Marine) said that recruiters are like sales people and will try to meet quotas for Enlisted.

    Thanks.

    Sounds like typical recruiter bs to me.

    Did you go to an enlisted recruiter or an officer recruiter?

    Go to a different recruiting office and if they still tell you the same bs then try a different branch.

    Goint enlisted and then trying to get OCS, even if you already have a 4 yr degree, is very difficult. It's incredibly competitive.
