Currently a senior in high school, I recently started on my WOFT packet with my recruiter and got a few questions relating to high school applicants.
- What kinds of experience and skills did you put in your "Why I Want to Be an Army Aviator" essay? I see all these essays by prior service dudes with references to their experience and knowledge of aircraft firsthand and command positions to show leadership. While I don't really have experience leading anyone outside of school projects for class.
- The requirements say 18, but is it possible to get selected at 17 or will the board immediately pass my packet off? I ask this because my graduation is in June 2018, but I don't turn 18 till Oct 2018.
- And lastly, if my packet takes a while to process and passes my ASVAB score's expiration date as it also expires Oct 2018 will I have to retake it even though I submitted it while it was valid?
