So I'll be processing for this board. Missed the one in July by a few days. First time applying as a civilian, non-prior service.

 

Age: 24

GT: 118

SIFT: 48

APFT: 243

College: 73 credits toward Liberal Studies, prior Law Enforcement Certs

Prior Occupations: Police officer, Police Dispatcher/Jailer, Police Cadet, Salesperson

LORs: 3 Army LTCs, 1 CA State Senator

MEPS Pulhes: all 1's.

Flight Medical: Stamped

Military: None

Flight: None

BN Board: 75/75

 

I am currently working on getting an updated APFT score and finishing up some more classes to raise my GPA. Also any tips on losing weight? I'm trying to get down to 175lbs. I started this January at 200lb and am now at 180-185lb consistently. Those last few are hard to get lol. Thanks!

Diet is 90% of it. Doesn't mean starve yourself, but fewer calories in than burned = weight loss. Don't drink soda's and juices. Only drink on weekends. Go from beer to liquor. Replace bread with lower carb flax wraps. Don't eat desert. That'll make a big difference right there. All "fad" diets essentially just reduce your caloric intake, thereby making you skinnier. You can do this on your own with portion control.

I'm pretty sure this question has been answered, but I'm having a hard time finding it. I'm going to need lasik/prk, which forms and documents will I need to take to my eye doctor to fill out in order to receive a waiver?

Too easy.

Page 16 of this PDF is what you will need to print out, usually it comes with your flight physical packet. This whole PDF explains all about eye deficiencies. If you have any issues understanding any of it PM me and I should be able to help you out. I had PRK in 2015 and have done two flight physicals since then.

I'd say your chances are pretty good, given the fact that civilian selection rate is nearly always 100%

if you can prove time stamped email, shouldn't be an issue. I sent corrections (OPAT) on the 13th or 12th

I probably wouldn't leave that alone, follow up with a warrant recruiter or send it again. Double check you sent it to the right address etc.
