  1. There are a lot of active/recruiter who will have access to the list. I would ask one of them to help you out and look if your name is on either of the lists.
  2. Do you happen to know what it was for LT's?
  3. How do they decide if you go with the 67 or Lakota class?
  4. I literally have the same tickets (in a shorter time period) and nobody has said it will be a problem to me. If you only have a total of two, the only thing that should matter is how much the tickets were for. I believe you only need a waiver for $300+ tickets but that might be inaccurate. Either way there is a waiver process, you shouldn't just be "ineligible."
  5. So if we're all playing BF together, who gets to fly the helicopter? Do we do some kind of three way tiebreaker or take turns?
  6. From what I've read, you reup your contract after flight school for 6 years. So it's basically a 8 year commitment when you consider 2 years of flight school and then another 6 years after graduation.
  7. 1- like you said it varies from weeks to months, it depends on when the WOCS dates line up. 2- 1.5-2 years depending on bubbles
  8. Just found out a kid I knew from college got Apaches, he's a LT. Small world!
  9. If you're as far along in the process as you say you are, the odds of you directly competing against someone who's just starting their packet is pretty much 0%. You're just kind of being a douche by not helping someone get as much info as possible.
  10. I've just come to accept that there's no rhyme or reason behind what's available for selection.
  11. I seriously bombed hidden figures and got a 64, don't stress it man
  12. Statistically yes, but the Army is also the largest branch and a majority of those casualties are infantry. Make no mistake though, choppers go down: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_aviation_shootdowns_and_accidents_during_the_Iraq_War#Rotary-wing_aircraft
  13. Dad and gf have been very supportive, although my gf was pretty apprehensive about the whole thing. My mom was pretty ignorant about a lot of stuff though. Once upon a time I was applying for Marine PLC, but it didn't work out for me. So now that I want to apply for WOFT she sees it as a "downgrade" because I'll be a WO instead of a Lt., as if its her career move? I just have to put aside her opinion because I know what's best for me.
  14. Correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't you already military when you decided to apply for WOFT? I was talking about it from the civilian side, nobody at Stewart or Benning knew what the hell I was talking about when I told them I needed a flight physical but I was still a civilian. I kept getting transferred between the same 2 or 3 different medical departments. To be fair, I didn't know at the time who I was really supposed to be talking too either. I got mine done in one day, but I was definitely the exception. Aviation medicine at Fort Drum really worked with me since they knew I wasn't local and couldn't come back for a second day. I got there at 0630 and left around 1630, it was a long day but obviously worth it.
  15. You can do it by yourself, but it's a lot easier if your recruiter does it. 90% of the bases I called told me "your recruiter has to call and set it up", I just kept calling till someone finally said sure and here's your appointment date.
