My recruiter told me I would get a phone call the 24th.


And here I was thinking I'd be waiting till the 28th. Lol. I'm my recruiters first woft applicant so he don't know too much about it. He's done a good job tho.

Anyone else still pending a waiver? Recruiter said my package is at the proponent/waiver level.

Just stressed that Im not ready for Monday yet

I spent some extra time finding recruiters who had done the process before and were well educated on the process. It didnt keep us from hitting a good ammount of speed bumps along the way but its good to have someone who knows the process around.

That is... IF I get selected. Same goes for the rest of us.

True. Just jealous civ applicants get to find out earlier than AD. Good luck though!

Yeah I dont know if I could wait the extra 4 days to the 28th lol. You prior/current service members get the higher % of flight seats from what Ive heard.

100% of street to seat typically get selected, where at least one person doesnt get selected on the AD board so that % is lower for us AD wise. Although idk how things have been in the past before 2017

Haven't heard that before, any idea as to why that is? The 100% street to seat selection.

Been watching these boards for a few months now. I submitted my packet for AD back in May for the July board. Obviously got FQ-NS since Im posting here. I think my issue was, I only had a CW4, my ERB assignment history wasnt squared away, and I didnt catch the grammar error my commander left on his LOR.

Here are my stats just to give you an idea lol.

Age:28
GT:128
SIFT:54
APFT:293
TIS:SSG just hit 10 years 10SEP18
Physical is good with a waiver
LOR: 1 from Btry Commander, 1 From BN Commander, 1 CW4 standardization pilot.

I wound up redoing my unit LORs, my DA61(going to suck if Im FQ-NS since my readmission date will be pushed back further), and my summary. Being in Air Defense kind of sucks since Im no where near any aviators and I only met this one by chance! Anyways, good luck to everyone in September.

He got it from the selection rates from the last couple boards. I think the last 3, 2 had 100% street to seat, and 1 had like 2 people not make it.

There is about a 4:1 ratio of AD Applicants to Civilian Applicants. Also, there are a lot of factors, far more than for Civilians, that go into accepting or denying AD applicants. But yes, Civilians tend to have a much higher % selected on boards right now.

From what Ive heard previously, prior service applicants get first pick over civilian applicants. Looking back on the forums of previous selections this year, it doesn't look like there is a significant advantage to being prior service in selection. Especially since it has been 100% selection for civ, as you guys are saying.

No thats not correct. Civilians are chosen prior to AD (if thats what you meant by Prior service, as civilians could technically be PS). They are two separate sessions of the board's same convening, and civilians are boarded first.

 

From my understanding, AD members have other factors that come into play for whether or not they are selected. Current MOS, Army strength numbers, Military record, Age, longevity (i.e. military retirement potential), etc. could be factors.

 

Outside of those things I'm not entirely sure how the board selects when it comes to allocated slots. It could be the Army would like a certain number of slots allocated for civilians and a certain number allocated for AD; Since  more AD members are applying at one time, all the slots may get eaten up to quickly to select all..

 

EDIT: Nevermind - I see you meant PS gets an advantage over non-PS in the civilian runnings.

I was told directly from USAREC chief of the board they review all waivers the Friday prior to the board, and process as many as possible. They have been given a recommendation of approval or disapproval by proponent prior to, so it's a fairly simple process. Yes or no. I believe the age waiver comes from a higher source within HQDA-G1. I would stay patient until tomorrow around 5 central, then call your recruiter. Good luck!

I know the feeling. Thankfully I got a phone call at lunch today from my recruiter. Looks like Ill be board ready as of tomorrow. Hoping he wasnt just blowing smoke lol. Good luck to you, I know its nerve racking and frustrating having no control over the situation.
