  1. Well hey! Congrats! Finally someone that has the same dates as me! I will be at Fort Sill on 9/9 with you and my WOCS date is 11/26... one day earlier for some reason.
  2. I'm going to sign papers tomorrow. Who wants to bet i'll be at fort sill on 7/15?
  3. Selected May 2013 - Civilian AGE: 29 ASVAB AFQT/GT: 92/126 SIFT: 59 APFT: 270 EDUCATION: SOUTHER ILLINOIS UNIV, B.S. Aviation Management/Flight GPA: 2.1 FLIGHT: 168 HRS FW BOARD: 75/75 LORS: CW5, Air Force Col. (ret), Tae Kwon Do coach, Boss OTHER INFO: Business owner, NRA certified instructor, High-ropes/challenge course instructor, Tae Kwon Do instructor.
  4. yeah my recruiter said 47. I didn't believe him but I guess he could be right. ...and YES! selected!
  5. Nice video! It was cool to see some newer clips from rucker.
  6. I would be a lot more interested in AF if I weren't about to turn 30 and didn't just submit my army warrant packet. Stupid time making me old and stuff. I was mostly just curious as to how the other branches treated civilian pilot slots.
  7. indeed. If anything, i feel that they would raise requirements for everyone first. they would loose a lot of great candidates by cutting it completely. There are no guaranteed civilian flight slots for the air force is there? Only through AFROTC? What is the reasoning behind that if it's even true? Maybe to ensure that their pilots have a certain level of devotion?
  8. If this is true, I wonder, at what point would this news would be officially released? I'm sure there are a lot of people that have a good portion of their packet together, probably don't know and may not find out until it's too late I'm sure recruiters will be the last to find out.
  9. I agree 100%. 2 packets will never be identical. also, only so much can be derived from a test score which, even though your not supposed to be able to study for, you can. Every part of the packet plays a certain role in speaking for a candidate. It just seems odd to me that... given a rare hypothetical situation where you have 2 very similar packets, the SIFT scores are withheld from that decision. In this situation I feel that there is a huge difference between a candidate with an 80 and one with a 40. Anyways... just bouncing my curious thoughts off this thread. We are all probably thinking too deeply about this and for good reason. For many of us this is our life right now and selection is crucial. It's been said many times before and many more to come... Give 110% and none of this matters anyway.
  10. Exactly. choosing between 2 identical packets except one is a perfect 80 and the other is a 40. sucks for the candidate with the 80.
  11. That's great news for me! This means my 59 will look the same as everyone elses score. It just doesn't make complete sense to me though. Even if they have nothing else to compare scores to... they will always have the other packets to compare to. It's just so hard for me to believe that they wouldn't use every bit of information they can get. The only thing I can come up with is that they don't want them making decisions based on scores yet. For instance: how much better is a 75 than say a 59. They would know it's better but how much weight does that higher score carry?
  12. Wow! I bet this terrified a ton of people for a little while.
