Thanks a bunch for being extremely responsive with answering questions.
I have some questions, one regarding the "Hidden Figures" section of the SIFT, another regarding an LOR, and the AFPT.
1. For the Hidden Figures, I've heard that it can be extremely difficult and most people don't come close to finishing the section. For this section, doesn't it make the most sense to immediately skip a question if you can't quickly identify the shape in the question? In my mind it doesn't make sense to get bogged down on a question and lose valuable time. Is this an option for this section? I've never seen anyone post about it.
2. In terms of an LOR, my Uncle was a captain in the Marines and flew C130's. Can I use him as a LOR, or does the board not like using family members (I am a street to seat candidate, and my Uncle does have a different last name). I also plan on using a current Federal Probation Officer that I interned for in college, and last a CW4 that my recruiter knows.
3. I see other people posting their AFPT score, is this required for civilians as well? If so, where do I get tested for this? I don't remember my recruiter mentioning it to me or seeing it on the USAREC website.
