  1. Yeah, not sure how my recruiter had my results on the morning of the first day of the board. I would assume going through dozens of applicants would take at least until lunch time. Unless they look at some of the packets before the official board and decide ahead of time. I'm still hoping there was a miscommunication on my recruiters part, but I'm not counting on it.


    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. ive got the sift, asvab, 3 LOR's done. So much time has passed that my flight physical and meps physicals have expired. One of the things he was jerking me around about was 2 tickets I had, 1 for speeding and 1 for running a stop sign. The one I got for speeding was 11 years ago, the one for the stop sign was 5 years ago and I went to traffic school for it. He told me at first that it would be okay, but months later after difficult communication tells me that I would not be eligible. How are you supposed to determine this? I've heard from friends that have had traffic tickets that I should be fine.


    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."

  3. Once selected and sign your WOFT contract at MEPs, what are approximate timeframes from:


    1. The time you sign your contract at MEPs to shipping out to basic? I'm sure this varies, but how soon can you typically ship out?


    2. The time you ship to basic to the time you graduate from flight school?



    I know there's probably time gaps between WOCs and flight school, etc, but just looking for a rough estimate.



    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


    And by the way, this sh*t doesn't even make sense!! And 3 of you turd-brains liked it... What it demonstrated is that I really want in. If you're in a job interview with 1 other person, is it smart to try to help out the other guy as much as you possibly can?? Would it be smart to throw in a couple of "f*cks" into the interview by "accident" so he would look better??


    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.

  5. My family has been mixed about it. My mom said go for it, but my dad (who is more liberal than my mom) has had some skepticism. My fiance on the other hand-- she kept pushing me to join the Air Force Reserve since she felt the Army side was more dangerous. Any truth to that?


    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

  6. 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.


    My Accessions NCO told me all I had to do was show up to the TMC at Ft. Sam as a walk-in. I get there at 0630 only to have them tell me they only did Part I on certain days. To my luck, they went ahead and worked me in with the BOLC class going through their PHA stations. Had no idea they were going to dilate my pupils though, that was a fun afternoon at work.


    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.


    Wait how long is the physical? More than one day?


    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.
