Do you know if there will be a board later than September this year? Ive checked the site and I dont know if they just dont update it to reflect that far out or if there isnt a board because there was November boards last year .

There will be more boards. September is just the last board for the Fiscal year. OCT starts a New Fiscal year and I will assume the 1st board will be in November.

Don't know if I will make the July board but I sure hope to! I just need to get my flight physical approved in time and I haven't received any clear cut answers on whether I can submit the packet later than the "deadline" date as a civilian. I have just seen the civilian packets have had more lenience on when they can be submitted.

 

Anyway, my current information:

 

Age: 31

GT: 134

SIFT: 70

APFT: Pending (240 self test)

LORs: Current boss, Good friend who is an ex-marine, CW3 AD Aviator

School: Associate's Degree, 3.975 GPA

Military: None

Physical: Meps done, flight physical scheduled

My recruiter submitted mine this week for the July board. They called USAREC to confirm dates for civilians, and they are a bit different. Obviously I'd say get it submitted sooner than later, but you still have some time. Depends on how quickly you can get your Flight Physical turned around.

Did you happen to find out what the timeline is for non-Army applicants?

Unfortunately I didn't get a timeline, he just said that he spoke to someone at USAREC and they confirmed timeline was a little different and that I'd be ok or July board.

I got called up to do my board interview last month (civilian). When can civilians expect to hear back? My recruiter can't give me an answer. I'm going to assume the USAREC board is in July? Any info would be great. Thanks!

So I did my battalion board interview yesterday and was recommended. I was told by the battalion staff I had 10 day to go to MEPS to sign my contract. When I kept asking about getting approved at the USAREC board in July, I was told the process has changed and USAREC is just a paperwork formality now. Can anyone speak to this change?

 

(If I get to MEPS next week and it doesn't say 153A, I won't sign.)

Interesting. I just left my battalion board in Atlanta. They told me USAREC would have to give me the thumbs up nationally, and Id have to wait a bit longer than the OCS recruits. (They make the decision on OCS guys at the local level, WOFT decision is made ultimately at the national level).

I have heard this as well from recruiters. 

 

They said over the last fiscal year the process changed to make the battalion level board the final part of the selection. I dont doubt the packet still goes to the USAREC board, but that is what I was told. 

 

I am trying to verify this information as well.

 

Also heard everyone technically enlists after getting the green light within a week of selection, but that the contract will specifically be set for 153A. I am especially skeptical about this and like you, will proceed with caution should I get selected.

UPDATE:

 

The Houston recruiting Battalion called today to apologize because they realized that this was incorrect information and that I wouldn't sign until/unless approved at a USAREC board. I think they're just so accustomed to doing OCS packets that they thought it had switched for WOFT too. Good news is that they think they'll still be able to get me on the July board despite any deadlines. I hope this helps. Good luck to everyone.

Whats the usual wait time to hear back from the Battalion board? I see some people hear back same day, some it takes a couple of days. Mine was Friday and my recruiter hasnt heard anything back in regards to my board grade or anything yet.
