Civilian board over and done with! I received a 71/75 with full recommendations and good review notes.

The hardest part was sitting with my hands flat on my legs and my feet flat. It's hard to not use your hands when you are trying to confidently answer a question. My board was made up of two ROTC officers (LTC and captain) and the recruiting captain. 

I was expecting the first question to be general where I could tell them about myself and hit a few of my points. Instead I was asked to name 3 achievements I was proud of from school which threw me off for a minute.

Congrats on your successful board!


Mine is tomorrow. I hope it goes just as well.


False alarm, postponed until Nov. 9th

I had my board interview for the National Guard last weekend. Was actually notified of my selection by the guy who encouraged me to join and pursue aviation. President of the board called him with the results and told him give me the news in person. Pretty neat moment.

How long did your interview last? Did they go after your weak spots on your packet? Ive heard a lot of mixed information on these boards.

Mine was about 20 minutes. First question from the board president was about my APFT score, which is the weakest part of my packet. First question from the next board member was about a class I failed in college. They gave me the opportunity to explain both of those things and to talk about how I learned from the experience. Other than those two questions, most of the board was trying to get a sense of how I'd fit in the Army and if I had any strings attached (debt, loans, etc.) that would hold me back.


From what I've heard, the board can vary wildly depending on the location that yours takes place, so my experience will probably be different than yours.
