Hoping someone can help me out. I just got my package kicked back because the individual signing my DD Form 368(conditional release) didn't have the authority. I'm AD Air Force and had my Squadron Commander sign off on my release. Any other sister service guys have any input on who the authorizing official should be?

Physical DQ so now get to start the waiver process.

 

 

 

If you don't mind me asking, what were you DQ'ed for?

 

I couldn't wait to get my part 2 done, only to find out I have an abnormal EKG.  :o  Just keep moving forward.

Thats what I'm concerned about as well. EKG, eyes, and all bloodwork is perfect, but I have a rating for my back and knee from prior service. They are 100% now, and I have a report from a sports med doc to that effect. I also have the original report from the imaging (but no imaging) stating no arthritis, no disk degeneration, etc, but I'm hoping it doesnt get kicked back by rucker. If I miss this board the next one for the Guard is spring... so hoping for the best.

Nomad4life....the release has to get uploaded to VMPF and your CSS can then track it. It will be routed to your functional manager at AFPC. Apply under self service actions, and then separations, you will select entering an officer training program. The USAREC / WO website lists the instructions as well. Mine was initially denied and then I re-submitted and was approved on the second go. If you have any issues I'm more than happy to help.

It was for kidney stones. Had two the last 7 years but never passed them. I got them removed about 2 months ago now. Hopefully having a FAA class 2 physical and a fair amount of flight hours will away the waiver.

Also got told waivers are taking about 3-5 months now so that was depressing. Or at least for stones. Fortunately, I'm stationed fairly close to Rucker so getting to do most of it in person and not via email or other correspondence.

I can understand that for sure. It took me about 3 months of cardio appointments just for the information required for my ETP. There I was 26 years old with a heart monitor on, taking stress tests, getting MRI's, and what not. I like to brag about my stress test because I almost maxed out the machine before it got my heart rate high enough :P

 

But after I took all the tests I got my ETP in about 1 month.. hopefully yours is just as quick

I was reading the aeromed guidelines and it says I may only be an "information only" situation, which would mean I don't need a waiver. I did already receive a waiver to enlist from the Guard which is good, cleared the MEPS physical, etc.
 

On that note, how long between when Rucker gets the physical and they typically get stamped?

I don't anticipate the flight surgeon up here will be able to get them everything for the next few weeks, and my packet is due Sept 8th (though I guess a pending flight physical is sometimes ok)

Is this board only for AD applicants?

Active and Guard(by state) run seperate boards ... Not sure about reserves, however. I just threw my info up since I should be on the September board (for Guard), and I'm otherwise homeless on this forum

Applied last year in May/July so here's to round two!
Age-26
GT-115
Sift-52
APFT-256 currently, shooting for 275 by submission deadline
Military 7 years AD SSG, AH64D/E Technical Inspector
Mil Ed WLC, ALC
CIV Ed 39 credit hours towards associates 3.86 GPA
Flight hours- does sim time count?!
Physical Stamped, no waivers (redoing physical though as the one from last submission expires in September)
LORs - Have the CO, BC, and my CW5 letter is In Progress

You guys and your GT scores make me paranoid.
Best of luck to everyone and I look forward to hopefully meeting some of you at Rucker. Let's hope the September board is as kind as the rest of these have been. I'm actually PCSing around the same time the results would come out so I'll be frequenting the forum so I can stay on top of the list while in transit.

Dude don't worry about the GT score it's the whole person concept. Have a great summary and strong LOR's from senior warrants you'll be fine. My GT was a 116 and I made it in your chances are very very good . I encourage the PT score to be 275+ honestly I believe that's a major sell point. My past Pt cards were no lower than 275 so I'm sure than helped me! Best of luck!

BDavidson,

6 LORs, I guarantee 3 of them won't even get a glance. Prioritize and pare them down to your 3 or 4 most formative.

Mike-

I more or less just got 6 knowing they might not all be looked at but if they see 3 incredible ones and see 3 more great ones that might just give me a little bit of a edge for the board.

WHY? I contacted them because my clearance was taking too long (was on hold 3 address changes in less than 2 years but since the investigation was "open" I was told not to worry abut it and submit as it was and I got accepted and I'm board ready.

It won't give you an edge, pick 3. The board members don't choose the 3 best, we scan 3, you're just using hope as a course of action that we happen to review the most reflective of the bunch.

Yeah my issue is my run ATM. Getting back from a deployment where all you do is lift lift lift you start slacking on the run. I maxed push-ups though and was a few sit-ups away from max I'll get there by the updates deadline I'm running 3 miles every two-three days to bring my time down. In my humble opinion, my resume is very well written, much better than the last one I submitted. While writing it I was reading it as if it weren't me even I am like "there's no way both of these packets are the same person".

Luofynerd,

 

Run more 400s and 800s. 3 mile runs won't really have much of an impact on your 2 mile time. Of course running doesn't hurt, but I promise you more high intensity intervals will drastically improve your run time. Example -- Monday - 6 x 400m, run 1 walk 1. Keep them under 1:20. Tuesday rest, Wednesday 4 x 800m. Run 2 laps, walk 1. Keep them under 3 minutes. Thursday rest - Friday hit up your 3 mile. I used a plan like this when I was training for Ranger School and took my run time from 14:30 to 13:15 in about 4 weeks. Good luck!

 

BTW -- It's harder than it looks, just push lol.
