I was selected on this board as a civilian, but I don't ship out till November. Does anyone know the likely hood of getting a sucessful renegotiation to go earlier?

It's all based on when they can slot you for the 7 week course, which the next available one is in January... you finish basic and head straight to WOCS. This happened to a couple of folks on here recently

Yeah that would be great if that was possible... but unfortunately that's not gonna happen. As wheelsup mention, the next 7 week class in not until January. Depending on when you ship in November, you might not even get slated for that class since you'll have HBL to deal with also. It's gonna be cutting it close I imagine.

I know a few people that are shipping the end of September for BCT through December, and will be sitting idle most of December waiting on the 7 week January WOCS class to start. Sounds like you are shipping late October or early November and will have only a few days between finishing basic and starting WOCS.

 

I personally feel that your ship date is pretty good considering I'm going to probably be mopping floors for a month waiting for WOCS to start. But regardless, I'll be seeing your there in January!


Civilian, selected March 2017.

Hahaha, there's only so many floors that can be mopped.

 

It's definitely a good thing to get here early and have plenty of time to get everything prepared, stuff stenciled, and uniforms DX'd rather than be rushed the days leading up to class. Will also give you a chance to read the WOCSOP a time or two before class begins.

Just got my Report Date for WOCS, April 5th 2018 for Phase one.  Class 011 if anybody else on here is slotted for the same time frame let me know!  Pretty excited to leave, not excited to wait this long.

Actually deployed right now so I just walked up to the first army guy I saw and asked for an E7 haha. I thought as a TACP that the one from my unit would suffice but they made me redo it.

I recommend somebody start a closed facebook page for that class 18-11. There will also be a Milsuite page up eventually for people to communicate on. The TAC officers will post occasionally on the Milsuite but may even join the Facebook page to disseminate information. Good way to start getting to know people who are going to be in your class and discussing things like mascot, mottos, etc...

Got 3 emails last night. 

Warrant Officer Candidate, class 008, phase one. Report Date: Feb 22nd 2018, End March 12th. 
Warrant Officer Candidate, class 008, phase two. Report Date: March 12th 2018, End April 11th. 

Assuming the above is WOCS...? 

Aviation WOBC (Common Core) (Part A), Class 014, Report date April 22nd, 2018, End May 11th. 

And this, I'm assuming is the start of initial flight training? Ground school? 

I'm not in the Army so the website the links in the email take me too, and all this is very foreign to me. I'm still trying to figure out what I'm looking at. Glad I have some solid dates right here in front of me! However, that doesn't answer when I ship for BCT and that's before any of this. . . So I'm still trying to figure out how I'll know when BCT is and when I'll receive orders.

Now that I have this initial email, I may give HRC a call. Hopefully they can help me out. 

The countdown begins!
