I've seen a few of these stats posted from prospects, can we get some stats posted for the competitive profile or from those previously selected?

Was going active duty your only change to your application?

Essentially, yes.  Going active duty came with more broadening experiences/opportunities, so my resume is more robust than before.

My recruiter said he sent my packet to Ops for a QC.  (Quality Check I believe?)  I was told that they wouldn't look over it until closer to the deadline though.  I understand that I need to conduct an interview with my recruiter's commander?  Can anyone shed some light on that?  Thanks.

I've been using this form for the last few months and figured i'd pitch in my bit... 

 

-Age: 26

-GT: 120

-SIFT: 53

-APFT: 285

-MIL: 6 years AD Air Force 

-Civ Ed: AA in Business

-Physical: G2G

Thank you for all of the help throughout this process. I was hoping my SIFT score would be a bit higher but I definitely botched the Hidden Figures section as well as some of the Aeronautical Knowledge questions. Good Luck to all!

If any of you feel like helping me out, would you mind glancing over these flash cards to see if they are good study material for the SIFT? I would really appreciate it. 

 

Also, have any of you noticed a correlation with a good GT score and a good SIFT? I got a 135 GT score and am just hoping it bodes well for SIFT.

 

Thanks!

They are applicable to the test, however, just use the search function and you will find everything you need to study for the SIFT. As to your GT question. They don’t always correlate, I have a friend in the pipeline with me and even though he has a higher GT score than me he scored lower on the SIFT because he is weaker on physics.

You can correct it. I had to do the same thing for my packet.
