I think you got bad info. Jan board is 14-18th. Submission deadline was Nov 30
https://recruiting.a...BOARD_SCHEDULE/

 

Negative. The "board submission deadline" has nothing to do with civilians. That is for Active members only. You can submit your completed packet up to a week to two weeks prior to the board as a civilian.

Thats what I tried telling my recruiter, looked like battalion board dates.

But are you sure thats not just for Active Duty guys? November 30th is quite a way out from January and I know generally civilians can submit about 1-2 weeks out from the board. Or at the least, can submit later than AD applicants.

Edit: just saw your post byte, thanks for the confirmation.

When I say minor its thing like speeding and underage drinking while in high school but from what I heard about the last few boards they werent accepting anyone with moral waivers in the AD side. Im not sure if that was the case on the November board but fully its not for the January board or Im screwed.

 

Hopefully, that is not the case and they do accept moral waivers on an individual basis. Looking at the total Soldier concept, it seems that you have learned from any prior hiccups and moved on to become a great NCO.

 

Commandants list at BLC/ALC and E-6 with 6x years TIS is very impressive and shows where your head has been at. Keep at it. If your packet is not accepted for this board, keep submitting and re-submitting. The criteria for moral waivers, ebbs and flows based on who is in charge.

 

Prayers out. I really hope they get approved and you are accepted.

Thanks brother I appreciate it. Hopefully we can all make it. This is something I will not give up on.

They emailed me the memo approving my waiver and added it to my packet. They also said my packet was board ready.

I heard they are only taking 10 officers this board. Should be tight competition for us commissioned folks.

Where'd you hear this? I'm starting to wonder if the stats posted on this forum are PNN level. I remember a thread that firmly stated "talked to someone at Rucker, they are taking 60% street to seat 40% ad for the future," which was then followed by about 2 boards of ~68 AD slots and ~25 street slots. In this thread someone says "heard they aren't taking waivers" followed by a dude with 3 waivers getting approved.

I believe the 40% AD to 60% Civ is accurate. Though I don't think those percentages combine both sides. As in : You have 100 AD applicants and they will only choose 40% out of that 100 which is 40 applicants. Same with civilians: You have 50 civs and they can only pick 30 which = 60%.

 

Plus, If there are AD members with packets that blow away whats left of civilian %s, I wouldn't be surprised if they pick higher %s AD

I don't believe this makes sense. The accession rate is not based on applicants it's based on needs of the army. They have available slots, they fill them. Every board this year has had about 65 AD. If 200 people applied they aren't raising it to 80. They have ~65 slots per board.

I mean your explanation makes sense. I thought you were contending the hearsay info wasn't accurate..What do you mean by PNN?

This is true. I think you just answered your own question then..What do you mean by PNN?


PNN is an active term for private news network, meaning the extravagant and numerous rumors that go throughout organizations. Rarely substantiated by anything better than "I heard" and even more rarely correct. It's getting to the point where I believe the statistics posted are about as reputable as no one seems to ever have a source besides someone at Rucker/a cw5. The only things I've seen that have helped me are a congressional brief from early 2017 saying they are taking ~140 more a year, and the actual milper messages with names and ranks. If you get picked up and join the army do yourself a favor and never believe anything not in writing and even then never believe it until it has begun.

Ahh gotcha. Yeah I never heard that acronym before, though I haven't been in for very long. Good to know.

My recruiter told me that. Obviously I'm taking that with a grain of salt.

How fast did you guys get your board ready status or otherwise after submitting?

Also any educated predictions on selection rates this board? My fear is they overfilled earlier this year and that rates will now plummit.

I feel like my packet is quite competitive for a civilian but not counting on anything.
