The fact is, unless they tell you the program is completely closed, there is no reason why you should not put your name out there. If you are going to be told "no" at least let it come from the interviewing officer or the review board. The recruiting NCOs have absolutely no authority in deciding who gets into what program and quite often have no idea what they are talking about when it comes to placement and availability.
I don't know how it is for getting into OCS, but I am working on switching to active from reserves, I called one recruiter several times, went to see him in person but was told he'd call me to schedule a time to sit down and go over **** , left messages and never heard back, so I went to talk to a different guy in my area. If you don't feel like your recruiter is working with you go see a different one. Also, talk to all the branches.
