I just found this thread, maybe someone can help? I am currently in the IRR trying to get into a Reserve MI unit. I was told today by my career counselor that me going 35P will most likely not happen. Here's the deal: I took the DLAB a month ago and according to him, my DLAB score has to update on my records for the transfer team to cut orders for me to get into the Reserves but the Reserves won't update my score because I am IRR, Meps won't update since I'm in the IRR and Active won't update it since obviously I'm not active... Apparently I am the only one in three in years to attempt IRR to Reserves as a 35P and no one knows how to do it. Can anybody shed any light on this? Is it that hard to update a test score? I'm not sure why it's such an issue.
Also, this is the first time hearing about the 35P Bear Program, is it only for AD soldiers or are IRR soldiers eligible too? I am currently trying to get into the Reserves but I am willing to go AD too.
