I was specifically told by one of the secretaries of the board that if you have 6, include them all.  The way they explained it,  whether you submit 3 or 6, they will probably not read too much into them, but they will at least glance at each one.

Right.

For what it's worth, this is my take and what I did/why I included 6.

Call me confident or arrogant but I knew I had good chances. How to show them I'm worthy? By highlighting how I embody the whole-person-concept in these letters.
One LoR was about how I am committed to physical fitness beyond what the APFT requires.
Another focused on my high GPAs which demonstrates scholastic aptitude.
Another one focused on my leadership abilities. Even in the one from a run off the mill retail job, my former boss made sure to emphasize my work integrity and trustworthiness.

See where I'm getting at? Not everybody knows/respects you for the same reasons but all these different reasons show what kind of person you are.

AD Navy Applicant

I have been attempting at applying for over 3 years. Finally had the time and support from big Navy to allow me the conditional release and operational commitment.

 

Board Ready for the May board (1st) but not sure how that has panned out yet.

Preparing myself for a FQ-NS and July Board.

 

Age: 31

GT: 111

APFT: 246

SIFT: 46

LOR: O-4 H-60 Pilot, O-5 H-60 Pilot, & CW5 H-60 pilot and Command CWO

Experience: 10 years, H-60 Airframe & Hydraulic Mechanic, E-6 (HH60H,SH60B/F/R, MH60S)

College: 72 credits towards BS, 51 towards AS (Aeronautics)

 

Not the hottest stats by any means but a lot of leadership experience and outstanding Eval's(NCOERS) that I hope will benefit me.

 

Good Luck to all.

 

Hello from another Navy applicant!  My conditional release was declined twice by NAVPERS, so I'm planning to EAOS in April 2020 so that I can apply as a civilian. You mentioned that you were finally able to secure your conditional release, how many times did you request?

 

I'm an AWS2 at Lemoore SAR and I know a couple of the guys from Fallon SAR and NAWDC. Do you mind if I ask which you are stationed at?

 

Thanks,

Aaron

July will be my first look since, after some neglect, my packet never made it to this last board. My recruiter has taken ownership of a part of it, and so have I, we drive on with lessons learned.

 

In yall's opinion do yall think a waiver for an illegal waterfowl I shot two seasons ago is grounds for denial? Also, I am a prior service civilian applicant; I felt that I lacked the luxury of getting eyes on my packet with my recruiter doing the bulk of the work. To civilians reading, were yall able to get eyes on yall's packet and make corrections yourself on the spot? Also in terms of waivers, do yall have any contact information for as to who I can get with in checking the status of a waiver? DM me that info if possible. 

 

In hindsight, I thought for about 24hrs I was non-select, to find out my packet was never event looked at. I'll take that over a nonselect having only more shot in a fiscal year. Someone mentioned this in the May board feed, and I am paraphrasing, "if it doesn't feel right, think, and act." I couldn't agree more. 

 

Civilian Male Applicant 

 

Service: 6 yrs an infantryman 

 

ASVAB: I dunno but my GT is 112

 

SIFT: 52 (took me two tries, in yall's opinion do yall think that will hurt me, have yall known people to get selected with two SIFT attempt?)

 

Physical: Stamped and approved 

 

Flight: 135ish hrs, instrument rotorcraft cert

 

APFT: 260 but will improve

 

LoR: 3: GM to the Crossfit Gym I coach at, CFII who trained me, retired CW5 and DPE who did my PPL. 

 

Waiver: Still pending approval illegal waterfowl I shot two seasons ago.

I was not able to see my packet whatsoever.  You kind of just have to find a decent recruiter and contact up the chain of command to make sure everything is right.  Like I mentioned in the May board post, I would get in contact with the Battalion Ops guy.  They should have a direct line to the board and can check waiver status's.  There is a number listed on the FAQ part of the warrant officer section of the USAREC website.  Have your recruiter call it to check waivers.  If you can't find it, let me know and I'll DM it to you.  Even though the phone number is in the public domain, don't call it yourself.

How long did it take to get notified "board ready". I sent in my corrections and updates about 3 weeks ago and haven't heard anything except it's been sent to USAREC pending qualification, which is the message I got when I submitted the updates. I've emailed my recruiter but again, haven't heard back. Just starting to get curious if I should be more vocal or reach out to a different recruiter. Thanks.

Any update? I'm in the same boat. Sent in my packet and had to make corrections. Sent them over two seperate days but haven't heard anything else. The recruiter said my application is still pending but I'm still anxious to hear back saying everything is in good order.

Did you try contacting a different recruiter? That was the only way I was able to get an update.

There should be one online, but if you can wait a few days, I might have a copy on my laptop. I'm currently out of town.

I completed my PT test last Tuesday(6/11/19) and last minute corrections Friday(6/14/19), my recruiter submitted it to the guy who makes corrections on Monday (6/17/19) and I received a text from my recruiter yesterday (6/19/19) telling me I'm board ready. Did you have any waivers?

No waivers, just poor communication for a bit with my recruiter. I ended up calling a recruiter from a different region and they looked it up and gave me the "board ready" over the phone.
