Update on the board. I got all three of their recommendations, altho they said they had some reservations about my leadership abilities. Now it's a waiting game.

 

congrats. when are civilians required to submit for the September board? I know for the military side of the house our deadline was packet submission July 27th

My packet was also due on the 27th. It was missing my security clearance so I had to do the interview for that on 28th. I'm not up to date on how exactly the boards work. Does my packet go up with the ad packets for the usarec board or will my packet be looked over sooner? My recruiter told me it should be looked at soon but the usarec board date is September 24th.

Civilians can submit a little later than the deadline. Just have it turned in as soon as possible and keep bugging your recruiter until they get the ok that it is submitted and ready for the board.

Anyone know how long it normally takes to get a board ready email after it goes into review?

hmm. My recruiter told me the deadline for Sept. 22nd board is Sept. 10. Doubt I can make it by then. Haven't even been to MEPs for the physical yet. He seems to think we can get a date for the flight physical quickly lol!
Good thing I got a nice job and am not in a rush...

Kur,

 

Ive been told my packet is due Sept 6th and that we need to submit a week before that. (Civilian) 

 

I also am doing MEPS, the SIFT, and flight physical all in the next two weeks (allegedly) 

 

The recruiters I switched to have been on point so I am hopeful. Put the squeeze on your guys and try to make it happen if you want to make this board. In the words of my recruiters, "They are selecting everyone right now. This is not normal, get it while the gettings good"

Seminole,

well good to know. Right now the next steps depend on how fast MEPS will process my medical pre-screen. According to my recruiter that can take 3 weeks since I had LASIK paperwork and a few pages else to give them. Supposedly, anything more than 3 pages, they don't even look at right away.

Good luck w the SIFT. You seem confident so I'm sure you're well prepared. Got a 63 after feeling pretty shitty most of the way through which means if you feel good about it, you should do even better.

Good luck all! Got recommended by the Battalion Board, just waiting for that USAREC board at the end of September.

Got all of my corrections fixed today! The email said my packet is with proponent pending qualification. Anyone know how long this phase takes?

Age: 21

GT: 115

SIFT: 49

APFT: 266

LOR’s: O3, O5, and CW4

Physical: stamped fully qualified

 

11B

SPC

2 Years TIS

 

What have the selections rates been recently? 

 

I feel as if I dont have very much special about me that makes me stick out or would make me a strong pick other than having strongly written LORs and Resume. I have some anxeity over this board even though I'm really not miserable as a SPC I really want this because I see it as a way to make the Army a career.

Sift: 68
Apft: 250(lacking)
LOR's: O-3, O-5, CW4
Physical: Stamped with etp recommended, with ETP granted memo. (Should be good to go)

My packet is turned in and at proponent. I'm just waiting on the board ready email and hopefully get looked at on this September board. My flight physical was a nightmare and took a year to get it approved, but I stuck with it and they finally gave me the go ahead. Here's to hoping we all see our names on that Milper Message following the board! Good luck everyone.

I think they're talking about AD. My recruiter never told me anything about an email and I don't remember putting my email on any paperwork

Kramey, I had almost exact same scores except my sift was ten points lower and Im an e5. I had a 250 and worried really bad after submission and I was just first time select this month so youll be a okay man dont worry. Also if your packet is at proponent youll be fine

This goes to everyone though, call the recruiter once a week and ask. AFAIK they wont really go out of their way to inform you and I dont blame them
