  1. Wow, glad to hear that I am not the only one out there that this happened to. I started my WOFT packet in December 2011, worked on everything that I could accomplish with out the help of a recruiter and did everything my recruiter asked me to do in a timely manner. however, my FIRST recruiter was always dragging his feet, not wanting to schedule MEPS, the AFAST, or my flight physical so I changed recruiters. My Second recruiter got me through MEPS with no problems and everything went well. The week after I attended MEPS I took my AFAST and scored very well on it (144). I tried scheduling my DOD photo and flight physical immediately after and he told me we will get them done soon enough. About a month later did my APFT. again I scored well, a 280, and once again pushed for my flight physical. I had all my paperwork in such as college transcript, 5 letters of recommendation, etc. SO...after I did everything stated above, my recruiter stopped communication with me. I tried calling him once a week for a month , and left him 3 voice mails on his cell, and one at the recruiting office. So almost a year into my WOFT process, I quit trying to contact the recruiter, and even though I would love to be an Army aviator I am content with my engineering position I currently hold. Let me know if you had any luck with a different recruiter and what step you are on for your process.
  2. Ok, so I've been reading other peoples posts on here about Army WOFT and the eligibility requirements, etc., to get involved with this program. I have been talking to recruiters about aviation from all branches of the military, and have decided that Army aviation is definitely something that I am going to try for! I have a few concerns however regarding my juvenile history, and hopefully someone on this forum can shed some light on it. My background: 23 yrs. old, 5'11 & 176lbs High school graduate, 3.0 GPA College Graduate, 3.15 GPA, 3.76 in Aviation Bachelors of Science in Aviation CFI/CFII ASEL AMEL rated 350 hrs total fixed wing time, no helo time 60 hrs dual given Mock Army fitness test: 260 Letters of recommendation from: - a retired army chaplain (army officer) - a retired army helo pilot - a retired USAF B-52 Navigator - Chief flight Instructor of College (Part 141) - Retired Delta airlines captain ASVAB score of 76, GT of 118--taken in High school, will retake. AFAST not yet completed (studying in progress) And for the juvenile part... When I was 16 me and my buddy's decided to drive golf carts around in the middle of the night on a golf course. We ended up getting busted and charged with criminal trespassing, criminal damaging, and curfew violations...all misdemeanors. I have since followed these incidents up and have gotten them expunged from my juvenile record. My recruiter does know about them. I also have 1 speeding ticket as an adult :/ Any help as to whether or not these incidents coupled with my "resume" will hinder my ability to be a WOCS/WOFT candidate would be greatly appreciated!
