Other posts have mentioned there is currently a shortage of pilots. What does that mean for the March board? Better chance of selection hopefully....

 

Don't read much into hearsay, I would of course hope for a better chance of being selected, but the Army is a fickle bitch.


Civilian, selected March 2017.

Not sure why the shortage will mean for us applicants, but I know that my submission for the battalion board was over a week late and they still called and asked me to come sit for the interview. After that, my flight physical wasn't complete till Feb. 26th even though the USAREC board packet submission deadline was the 23rd. Still, they held the door open for me. Seems like they are allowing a lot of things to slide for qualified applicants due to the shortage.

Age 21
I graduate in May with a bachelors degree, 3.99 GPA.
ASVAB 93
GT 126
SIFT 64
PT 254, will be a lot higher by the time I ship out
Flight Physical Passed
Battalion Board Passed

With less than 13 days to go, can anybody fill me in on when I should expect to hear an answer? Same day of the board? How many days of anxious nail biting can I expect for the March 2017 USAREC board as a civilian?

Please send answers, beer and help.

Roughly 3 days from the decision to the posting IIRC from what I've seen on the forums.

Good luck for the May board! I've been in this process a year, it is frustratingly slow at times.

I'm dying over here, just another week or so. There don't appear to be a great deal of civilian applicants this board that decided to share their stats.

I've posted on the last couple of boards and foremost one reason or another didn't make it to the board. Decided not to post on this on in case it was bad luck.or something. Well I'm fairly certain that my packet has been forwarded to this board appreciate here goes:


Age: 32

ASVAB/GT: 92/128

SIFT: 65

PT: 277

Flight Physical: Go no waivers

Military: 3 years and some change 11B 82nd ABN

Civilian Education: B.A. Criminal justice (GPA not great, 2.9)

LOR: CW4 pilot, Air force O-5 Pilot, Army O-5 (Healthcare), Congressman, Current Fire Chief,
Retired NFL head coach

Waivers: None.

*Update to the waiver, they made me get an age waiver. I was told the age cap changed but then I was also told that they just decided to process a waiver since I will turn 33 while in the course. Who even knows at this point. Either way, glad to finally be going to the board. Good luck to everyone else.

If you don't mind me asking, how tall are you? I'm just curious because I'm not exactly short, and wondering if I'll run into any limitations.

Don't worry about the Kiowa, you won't get to fly one anyway! Great stats, good luck. Welcome to the nail biting club

I am 6'3", give or take an inch. (Gave my flight physical to my recruiter or else I could actually check.) And I know the Kiowa is retired, I just find it funny how often it still shows up. I had a question on my SIFT asking about it as well.

And thanks guys! I'm just hoping my PT score doesn't hold me back. I'm ready for next week to be over :P
