25B here trying to attend the second portion of my NCOES.
Long story short:
Applied through the unit back on 1OCT10, sent to the Battalion, and then to HRC, 2-3 weeks later I receive an e-mail that the quota for the specified date has been met and that I need to apply for a new date. So I did, twice now, equalling three total times. After the third denial I contacted my branch manager for assistance, and his direct words on this matter is to let the schools' NCO do his job. I'm not receiving any help on this matter. I've brought it to the attention of my CoC and NCO Support Channel. It's very irritating that a friend and fellow NCO can complete ALC DL Phase I after my completion date, and already be selected to attend Phase II (he's a 42A). Literally a week or two from his completion of the DL he had received a tentative date for the second phase. I know that he is a different MOS but come on!
Five months later and still no date. Not sure what to do now.
