Thanks for the advice guys, I've submitted the memo to Branch and am working on getting LOR's currently. 
 
For your Summary in the resume, how did you bridge the gap between being a Commissioned Officer and transitioning to becoming a Warrant? I'm trying not to restate too much of what is in my resume / ORB already but I want to make a point that my experience has shaped me and made me want to become a Warrant Officer. 


Talk about why you want to be an Aviator and also translate how your time as a RLO translates to being a Warrant. e.g. - Tactical and technical proficiency, mentoring (subordinates, peers, superiors), etc. Remember, youre trying to sell yourself to the board and give them a reason to pick me. Keep it to 2-3 paragraphs max. Youre not writing a dossier.

Thanks, I was on that track but wanted to make sure I was going the right direction.  

 

When getting LOR's from my CO and BC, I'm pretty sure they will have me draft a template for them to go off of since that is how they have had other people do LOR's for other packets recently.

 

If I'm supposed to generate one for them to go off of, is there a specific format or type of language that would be better suited for it? I just want to make sure the LOR's fit what the Board is looking for and gives the best snapshot of who I am.

Check the USAREC site. There is a template/format the LORs have to be in.

Thanks guys,

 

Does anyone have a recommended time to submit their packet early? I'll probably have everything done and reviewed by September/October at the latest so I was planning to submit in October for the November Deadline? Is there such a thing as too early?

New to this forum. Aviation O4, in the process of reverting. Does anyone have any knowledge (actual refs) that discuss if I would get high 3 MAJ retirement and the rank I would retire at. Very hot or miss on this subject, and most people who do this are in the CPT, LT ranks.

Actual regs, Ill ask around. But, as far as Im tracking high 3 is high 3 in terms of retirement. You would retire at whatever warrant rank you are at the time, but your retirement pay would be whatever your high 3 years of pay is (would probably be O4).

Got a question about UQR's now. I know that the minimum time to submit a UQR for acceptance is 6 months and max 12 months out but that is for people trying to leave active duty normally. Does anyone know how it specifically works for those trying to convert to WO?

 

i.e. If I get accepted in January, submit my UQR, can it be accepted 6-8 weeks later and have Orders as soon as possible or will there be a minimum 6 month wait from the time I submit it to get orders?

 

I only ask because It affects the positions and timeline at my current unit based on what will most likely happen.

I'm currently processing my UQR.  Get ready for a bunch of blank stares as you try to explain the process to EVERYONE that you will submit your packet through.  For my UQR, it was 5 days late.  I wrote a memo and self-signed as to why my UQR was late.  Nothing within my control.  I'll save the sob story for another time. 

 

Once your UQR gets approved through MPD, HRC will send an RFO and cut orders.  I don't think they follow any specific timeline except ASAP. 

 

I'm going to send you the guidance worksheet that I received from HRC when I got selected.  It explains a lot and will help.

As far as Im tracking, the UQR has nothing to do with the date when you will show up to rucker. There were several of us on the same board, submitted our UQRs around the same time, yet we all showed up over a span of around 4 months. I believe I got my class date before I submitted my UQR. So, you should know your timeline before you submit that UQR. Definitely look at that guidance worksheet from Joe. A buddy of mine and myself redid that and sent it back to HRC back in 2015. Hopefully they are still using the one we edited. Super helpful.

CPT Selected in the late JAN 2018 board. I am having trouble finding a template for the UQR and as you said I get alot of stares whenever I try to process. Does anyone have an example of the verbage the are looking for? 

 

Secondly, I am O-3 and MCCC complete. Everyone is telling me I should revert as a CW2. Is there any document i could reference for this? When I submit the DA Form 4187 for my WOCS equivalent credit do I put as a CW2? 

 

Any kind of help would be great! I am scheduled in ATRRS to report for WOBC 13 JAN 19 so I know I need to get these documents processed ASAP.

Dude, I got you.  Send me your email in a DM and I will forward you my packet, as well as some info on the CW2 process.

 

BLUF:

- Your UQR gets looked at funny because there are some differences between a standard UQR and the UQR you are about to do.  A UQR is a memo, and several of the bullets pertain to material that will not apply to you. 

 

- You will revert to WO1, and as soon as you report to Rucker, you will inprocess and be automatically promoted to CW2.  I have the guidance sheet sent from HRC that explains that process.  Based on time in grade/ time in service (I can't remember which one) you are automatically promoted to CW2.  I do not know if you get back pay for being a CW2, one of my RFIs.
