I know the MEPS I went to only adminstered the SIFT like once a month because the demand was not there. So your recruiter may have found that out at the last minute.

It is not that uncommon for MEPS to cancel special testing like the SIFT. I had it happen once or twice at least. Sometimes projections for tests don't go through either (late normally), which is also a possibility. I know it can be very frustrating having to go through a recruiter when you know you are not their top priority, but be persistent and don't rely on them for anything you don't have to.

Thanks for the info.

 

After I made that post, I ended up calling MEPS and talking with the test control officer. Turns out they actually had applicants sitting for the SIFT test that morning, the same morning I was supposed to be scheduled for it, the same morning my recruiter told me that MEPS cancelled all SIFT testing. LOL I'll tell ya, that was quite an interesting conversation I ended up having between my recruiter, me and his First Sergeant.

Hi everyone,
 
So it's been a hot minute since I posted last. I've been pretty busy with working full time at my job plus I had a family member in the hospital. But just wanted to say that I have my first letter of recommendation locked down from a great CW4. Everything else is still in the works. MC
