I barely missed the March board waiting on my flight physical but package ready for this one.

Prior service Marine, 5 years Air Traffic Controller.

Civilian

Age: 23

APFT: 280

SIFT: 45, couldn't finish because the system froze and automatically graded it.

3 LORs: 0-5 USMC Huey pilot, O-4 USMC ATC Officer, 40+ yrs DOD Air Traffic Control Supervisor

No flight time

I made a pretty good resume since I keep seeing it helps. Anyone else doing that ?

Anyone know, for civilian NPS applicants, do we need / can we include a resume? My recruiter said we did and I have an updated one uploaded in the system which I feel great about, but I don't want to 'lose points' for having one uploaded if I'm not supposed to...

It's not a requirement. It's optional. If you think it can improve your package then go for it.

Awesome thanks. It wasn't listed on the checklist he gave me, but as I've been digging through the weeds of various forms I saw it listed as optional on UF 601-210-12. Some of the verbiage on the website makes it hard to decipher which forms are actually for nps WOFT and which are not - want to make sure when I submit it's based on the correct info/checklist

It's not a requirement. It's optional. If you think it can improve your package then go for it.

I did not include one. My current resume is tailored to my industry and covers a lot of technical experience. Anything I thought stood out, management experience, aviation related work, etc., I tried to reference in my essay.

I wouldnt worry about losing points, but I would be cognizant that the board has limited time to review and I dont think you want to bog them down with too much material. If your essay and your LORs are succinct and you think the resume really adds something, I dont think it would hurt. I will say as a hiring manager, Id be way more interested in your ability to communicate any accomplishments through your essay versus skimming a resume.

Hello all,

 

AD-Navy Applicant

H-60 mechanic E-6 with 10 years in. Working on my package for the last year and submitted all last Friday. No pending actions so hoping for a straight forward shot to board ready. Glad I discovered this forum and group.

 

Any other Sister-Service applicants in here? Interested to see the numbers.

Does anyone know if Active Duty, Reserve, NG, and civilian applicants will have different board days or it will be mixed applicants during the time of the board? TIA.

Will the May board be anyone's 2nd look?

Also Is there a link in the USAREC website for the MILPERS message of board selectees?

Since they changed the website it is somewhat cumbersome to navigate...

Whelp, I was not selected for the March board.  I'll be joining you guys in the May board.  Once I go about improving my scores, I will post my stats here.

Hello! This is my first post.  I am attempting to make the May board.  Last thing I need is my flight physical which is scheduled for next week.  I feel confident I will pass it but is there any information I can read which will specifically let me know what the doctors will be checking for? Thanks

Whats up guys, 

 

I have not heard official word from my recruiter yet but have heard from others on these forums that I was NS for March board. I still don't know whether it was specified as FQ or NQ. Anyways, I am working on improving my packet for the May board.

Yeah, it'll be my second look. My packet seems to be in order but I am working on improving a few things (PT, essay, LORs) to be more competitive for May board. If anyone has any advice hit me with it!

Just read a thread on Reddit someone mentioning 3/5 applicants with PPL was selected. Which mean 2/5 were not selected....I'm so shook right now!

It can be daunting reading some of others stats or results. Bottom line, they have to abide by some sort of selection criteria. They cant choose all PPL or all Active Military. It has to be somewhat diverse and they pick based on a whole person concept. Just stay positive and keep in contact with your recruiter, don't wait them out and expect them to follow up.

 

I have done just about everything by myself. I cant speak on behalf of civilians because you guys go through a bit of a different pipeline. My WO Recruiter left all the heavy lifting for me and that's fine because its my potential career, no one elses!

Thats exactly my feeling as well. Im a civilian applicant so there is a lot of stuff I have to rely on my recruiter for, which is unfortunate. Good news is, my packet is complete and boarded in March and I was non-select. Does that mean my packet automatically submits for the May board? Or did I miss the March 22 deadline??

For Active Duty, I know that as long as my package is considered FQ-NS on the first board, it will transfer over to the next convening board without any further action. I would assume it is the same for civilian applicants, but it never hurts to ask. Is it the same 2 boards and you have to wait a year for civilians?

I submitted my package on March 15 and have yet to receive any word back on my status. WO Recruiter confirmed they received all attachments but no word on status... hope that's a good sign
