As of now I'm on orders to 2CR in Vilseck, Germany with a report date of 10AUG2017.  From the looks of it we will get the selection results on 26JUL2017.
If accepted will I report to Germany and PCS to Rucker from there or will HRC delete my orders and I'll stay at my current unit until my school date?
 
Cutting it a little close. 

I would try and get your orders deferred or deleted using the Milper message showing your selection and the attrs reservation for WOCS.

So VA finally paid the school i attended and took ground school towards my ppl and just today I received the transcript... I'm heading back to work but I'll doubt s1 will be there after lunch... I'll have to update erb, da61(CCo signature), resume and the deadline for updates is the 3rd... Is it worth it to try and send the updates after the long weekend? Will it go through before the board?

Improve where you can. Doing well on the APFT is entirety within your realm of control, increase that score to 300. Select rates are good, but remain competitive.

I was selected in January this year 2017. You are all strong candidates just follow the USAREC page very closely also it is important to have most of your LORs from senior warrants. I was a first time go but quadruple checked everything! I'm also in the guard so selection process is slightly different.

As others have said before, reduce the number of LORs you submit.

Swift, Silent, Deadly.

Hey guys,

I was under the impression that the board was running from July 18-22 based on what the usarec website says. My recruiter just told me the board is next week, the 10-14th. Has anyone else been told this? I'm a civilian so I guess the board dates could be different.

Any thoughts?

Taylor

You know, I have no idea either. I asked my recruiter and he said they were being held from July 17-19th this month for Los Angeles county. I saw the same dates you saw on the USAREC website.

Dukun8ter,

I'm thinking your recruiter was referring to the civilian portion of the board. Although the board is all duty week, from Monday to Friday, the board typically does civilians Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, and active duty the last two days. The advantage for you? As soon as the board had made a decision on your packet, your recruiter will contact you. For the active duty folks, they have to wait until a MILPER message is posted a few agonizing days later. It was so hard reading all the posts from the civilians an the last board post that they had been selected and I knew I had about 2 weeks before I would even know.

As for Taylor, I wish I could tell you what he might be referring to but I was selected on the active duty side. Maybe a civilian could chime in with a better perspective?

Either way, the next two weeks will be long and worrisome. I just worked out like a crazy person to keep my mind occupied on something other than the board. When I found out i was selected, it was the best feeling and totally worth the worry. Good luck both of you!

The board dates on the USAREC site are when the board is held. Unless the board date is changed they only have 1 board for civilians and active duty. Deadlines for civilian and active duty vary but the board is the same. Like it was previously stated civilians packets are reviewed first so I got my call about Tuesday when I was selected in March. Not sure why your recruiter would be saying something different.

As you guys know the board convenes on the 17th.  As of today (the 12th) my "application is currently with Proponent and has been in this status since 06 June".  When I emailed the proponent I was informed that there are no issues with the packet and that it's just waiting on a signature.  I still need a moral wavier.  Should I just assume I'm not getting boarded in July or is it normal to cut it this close?

At this point, all you can do is hope. Just because it hasn't gone through, doesn't mean that you can't make the July board if it is approved. My age waiver literally came in from DA G1 on the Monday the May board convened and it still made it to the May board. Every case is different, though. I didn't know I for sure made the May board until the MILPER message was posted and my name was listed as Fq-s. Good luck!
