Now that the September board is in the books and some of us have received the FQ-NS, time to start the November board thread. Here's to hoping the 2nd time's the charm!

Not sure about civilian packages...November 1st seems to be cutting it close for the board on November 26-30

I was NS for September board as well. Though I never got a call from the Battalion Commander to confirm that I was actually FQ/NS..... So my recruiter is just tracking the next board and he's gonna let me know if I'm on it or not.

 

I wonder if it being the end of the fiscal year had anything to do with the lower selection rates of the September board?....

 

Here's to round 2!

For civilians you can put in the packet pretty late. I made the September board and didn't put my packet in until around September 13th

The fiscal year idea makes sense...By that logic, November should be deep! 🤞🏻

For as long as I have been following the boards, civilians have always been boarded at each convening board. After talking with a friend that works for the Warrant Officer recruiting team, he said that he hasnt heard that they are not boarding civilians and doesnt see why they wouldnt board them on the November board. He said should be business as usual with boarding both AD and civilian applicants.

He commented on the September thread that he is indeed board ready for the November board so I think his recruiter was pulling his chain

Does anybody know if there is a maximum number of LORs Active Duty can include in their packets?

 6 to include the mandatory 3.

 

so you get 3 bonus LORs. Make them count

The advice I got back in the day when I asked about the number of LORs is remember the selection board has about a handful of minutes to look through each packet. So make sure you sell yourself as quickly as you can. So you can send in 6. But 3 strong LORs would be better than 6 mediocre ones. Or if you have a couple that are weak may be better to just send the best ones. Just food for thought.

I'm here for my second look as well. I like to believe the fiscal year has something to do with it as well! Either way, I'm reworking my resume, upping my pt score, and have a new senior warrant recommendation going into my packet and looking over my packet. Here's to hoping that we all do a little better in November!

I really hope you are right! Hoping to see some of us from the Sept board selected next month!
