Just got mine in a few days ago. I don't really understand the typical format of stats on this forum. Particularly people putting their upslip. It's not shown to the board and you aren't sending in a packet without a 2808 so why do people put "physical: stamped"? Anyway, I have a 126 GT and 60 SIFT, 279 APFT, as well as two bachelors degrees and around 300 CE hours. My understanding from meeting with the Brigade CCWO is that his letter and your essay play a huge role. You being able to effectively communicate and sell yourself as well as a senior warrant officer vouching hardcore for you. It needs to be quantifiable as well. Your packet needs things that show you are unique because all of us have good numbers, so you need to have things that make you shine above your peers.

I'm fortunate to have a pretty awesome history of service in the Army in my family. My dad was in SF with a CWO, who retired at CW5 and as the commandant of the Special Forces Warrant Officer Institute. I have met him several times, and he agreed to interview me for a recommendation letter. He did not go easy on me lol. I was lucky and didn't have to try too hard to get in touch with a Senior Warrant.

If you do that just make sure you come prepared with your otherwise completed packet.

My post has a RC Aviation unit and I saw to CW3's on day at the Post Exchange while getting food. Respectfully, I asked if they knew any CW5's on post and to my luck, they did. I went and met with him in and explained who I was, what I wanted and why. Senior warrants get requests to recommend people all the time so they are fairly used to meeting people (at least mine was).

Yeah I was just wondering if it was more walk in or if they knew you before. Im in a flight company so my company senior pilot brought me over and explained everything and put in great words since I've flown with the dude like a hundred times.

That info should be for any time you request an interview with a CW3-5

Luckily my BC and my CWOB were good friends which I didnt know about. I was waiting on my BC letter when I asked for an interview and told him my BC name and that was pretty much my interview haha.
Knocking on that CWOB door is in my opinion and many others, the best option

Networked and met the CH53 driver who wrote one of my letters. I was waiting in a small airport to go fly Cessnas with him and five Warrant Officers strolled in. I recognized them as aviators, so I introduced myself to the group as a WOFT candidate looking to learn from their experiences. 

 

Sometimes its better to be lucky than good.

My recruiter is telling me I don't need to have my flight physical completed for the board... just the physical at MEPS. Can anyone confirm if that's accurate

He may be referring to your battalion board but I'm pretty sure they don't do those anymore. Flight physical is required for your packet to be board ready.. the recruiters won't send your packet to proponent unless it's 100% done.

No he was talking about the flight physical... he said they do it when you get to rucker but it sounds totally wrong. How did you schedule yours? Im just going to schedule it myself

It has to be completed before your packet goes to the board. The recruiter may have something mixed up.

 

I actually called Ft. Rucker and spoke to a woman there and she gave me great information on what to do. She actually gave me the number for the closest Army base to me that I had to get my flight physical done with and I called them and started the process. The recruiter still has to follow up and get the appointment scheduled, but I had to get the phone numbers to call and forward it to them.

Civilian route and Enlisted are a little bit different as I just went through my Brigade flight Doc. I would imagine that you would need to contact someone on a post near wherever you are from and get something set up. It's probably one of the most time consuming pieces of your warrant packet depending on how well you track people down and whether or not they have a busy schedule.. which most do. You will be fine though, definitely do what Gage said and contact Rucker in order to get your POC for the physical.
