I'm not saying its easy. I'm saying its easier. It's the reality. I went through the last board forum on this site, May I think....it was a almost 90% selection. A guy i know in the reserves got in meeting the minimums and he had no degree at all. Just because you don't like hearing it doesnt mean its not true. I have no disrespect toward the Army ...my dad served in vietnam...for only 1 yr in 'nam thank god. And yes I would love to be a fighter pilot but I admit I'm not going to spend my whole life trying to get in either. I would still love to still fly helos especially it if means flying in the near future.
Yup, 88.5% which is way above normal - usually it's less than half that number.
Look kid, WOCS doesn't require a degree because somewhere along the line the Army figured out that experience means as much, if not more, than education. That being said, from what I understand you need a degree to be seriously considered for advancement in this field. On top of that, to balance out the lack of a degree you need an excellent SIFT score, very strong letters of recommendation, and a very high APFT. Oh, and a fantastic essay about why you want to be an Army aviator.
From what you're saying, that last part is going to sink you.
Become a WO is not an easy route. It sure isn't easier than being some 18 year old kid who gets a AFROTC scholarship. Most of the guys you see flying helicopters have been doing the Army game for years, and are the cream of the crop. Creep0321 was Marine recon before making this jump, I've been a scout in the Army for over 7 years before switching to WO. StockTrader left a very lucrative career and took a massive pay cut to get his dream job. Most of the guys you see are former platoon sergeants or squad leaders with multiple combat deployments as infantrymen, artillerymen, etc... and have been through a lot more than your average academy grad from Colorado Springs or Annapolis. Given the high test scores required to attend flight school, it isn't a stretch to imagine that most Army WOs would do very well at those schools if they attended.
Becoming a WO in the Army isn't what you do if you're not smart enough to get into college. You will not do well on the ASVAB, you will not do well on the SIFT, your board will hate you and USAREC will not select you as you stand right now. I sure as hell wouldn't want you in my WOCS class let alone at the controls of a multi-million dollar helicopter next to me.
Figure your sh*t out, have your "come to Jesus" moment, and re-evaluate why you think the Army would want you.
