Hey everyone,
 
I'm new to the forums as well and have a quick question.  How long did it take for your Medical read to come back?  
 
I've been working with a recruiter to get a WOFT packet started.  The problem I'm having is I've been waiting to hear back on my medical read so I can go to MEPS for my physical and ASVAB (yes, I know I have a ways to go before I can get to a selection board) for almost two months now.  When I contact my recruiter he still hasn't heard anything back.  I'm not sure if my recruiter is being honest in not hearing anything back or if I should stop wasting my time and go find another recruiter and start over?
 
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
 
 
Thanks 

Med reads are different for every MEPS, it is also depending on the stack of med reads they have to go through. Also if there was any discrepcy with your med read like incorrect numbered pages or something stupid like that it is sent back for corrections and then placed back at the bottom of list. The MEPS I have delt with in the past were ridiculous when it came to med reads and waivers. Just stay persistent and keep bugging your recruiter, not too much they can do but sometimes the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

I figured that was probably the case I just wanted to make sure before I made any decisions to change recruiters.  I'm located in Arizona so the Phoenix MEPS is the one I'm having to deal with...

 

Thank you for the info I appreciate it!

Got the call, was picked up. Bittersweet because I may not accept it and it's been over a year process. Good luck to all!

 

 

Does anyone have any insight into when the next 7 week class is? I don't need BCT but I had heard January for the next 7 week WOC, which seems a little crazy.

Why would you apply and not take the slot that somebody else could have gotten? I'm a just reading that wrong?

Guys,

Just got my packet back from final review(my recommender is in Korea and I am in Maryland) and will submit for the July board. I think I have a good chance according to the last 2 boards(over 60% have been selected). I am 26yo, 126 GT, 52 SIFT (wish I could take it again!!), 27 credits (currently in school for my private pilot license, 6 more credits) and I will have over 20 flight as pilot in command by July. LOR from CW5, CC and BC, I can get a few more form pilots from my previous unit but the LOR from the CW5 is pretty strong and I don't really see the need for it. Should I go for more? the only thing affecting the packet is my PT score as I went down 19 points from the previous one (271 to 252) but I can will just retake it and update before the board. Hopefully I make it, its been a year since I started working on it. I cant wait till July!!

I'm not sure I understand. Were you originally saying that you weren't going to accept for some reason? Why wouldn't you accept aside from the fact that it has taken so long?

When I originally was applying I was still a ways out from finishing school, I'm hearing the next 7 week WOCS class won't be until Jan time frame. At that point Ill be leaving 4 months before I have my degree, and its not an online program. Im not saying Im not appreciative and this hasn't been a dream, Im just saying Im trying to make the best decision for me.

Hey all,

 

Just curious.. How are people being notified when the board is going from 15-19 May? In reference to Blue2green, are sister branches boarded with the civilians?

 

I am confused.

They do the civilians the first day, so they reviewed Monday, called this morning from the Battalion HQ.

Understood, but it appears that bad planning may have taken another qualified candidates spot. I wish you luck, in my case I'm leaving college before I finish my degree in favor of the WOFT route. I'm about a semester away from finishing my bachelors in computer science.

Hey, I'm actually confused too. I thought the first 2 days were civilians, but they must include sister services in there as well? The call was very unexpected and I was nervous that it was going to be bad news since it was so early! So I'm not much help, sorry!

I am anxious to find out, I just hope they email me as my phone is shut off while I'm deployed! Good to see results are already being pumped out but nerve racking knowing the only way I'll find out is next week during the MilPers Message.

When do they do sister service selections? Or does it matter since it seems that active duty are being notified already during the civilian phase?

My husband is Navy and I received the call today (he is underway) so it looks like they do them with the civilian applicants.

Congratulations to him.  Strange though, I didn't know they did any active duty applicants this early. No call for me, a little paranoid now!

Thank you! If they include sister service with civilians, yesterday would've been a time for them to do them too so don't worry yet!! You could receive the call today. Not sure of your last name, but ours starts with A so if they go alphabetically, that could be a factor too? Good luck!!

Sister service is done with active duty. MILPER message is where sister service applicants results are listed, not a phone call.

We got the call yesterday from the head recruiter at our location.
