  1. Yeah I read that as long as it heals properly after surgery you'll be fine. I just wasn't sure if it was basically up to the MEPs doctor or if you needed a waiver and it was decided by someone else.
  2. So I went to the doctor today because my knee's been killing me for about 2 weeks now. I can't really put a lot of weight on it and long story short, he thinks there is ligament damage (specifically ACL) but we won't know for sure until I get an MRI. Are ACL waivers given fairly easily? I did a bit of googling but couldn't find any current info. Is it safe to assume that I'll need a new MEPs and flight physical? Has anyone been in a similar situation and know a rough timeline? I guess I just feel like sh*t about it because I was basically at the finish line about to board and now I feel like I have to start over. Any advise/wisdom on the situation would be appreciated.
  3. Clearly the only way to settle it is a fight to the death on the Rucker flightline
  4. https://twitter.com/PCEPSkinnyKid if you scroll through the photos it's obvious he's a troll.
  5. Hahahahahaha the butthurt You're like, "totally" screwed Infinger
  6. Hey guys show Shindig some respect. He's practically an officer already.
  7. So disappointed this made it to 100, I figured resistance would set in around 90 pages...but there are no breaks on the Shindig train.
  8. Yeah my gf looked into it a bit, but she did find some that didn't have the restriction. I just don't remember how close it was to Rucker.
  9. You'll have an easier time than me man lol Freedom drive looks like the place to be at though.
  10. I've seen that too, or breed restricted (I have a Husky).
  11. All I studied with was the "SIFT study guide" book and a few flashcards I found online. Personally, the part I had the most trouble with was the hidden shapes. I probably knew about 70% of the actual aviation questions and was 50/50 on the rest. I ended up with a 64, it's challenging but not rocket science.
  12. Shindig's the type of kid who gets yelled at in BCT, and then tells the DS he can't talk to him like that because "he's going to be an officer someday."
  13. I believe they're just used as training aircraft at Rucker but I could be wrong.
  14. If you have a specific question you want me to ask you can shoot me a DM.
  15. It's up to the investigator. They break everyone you list on your SF86 into two groups, "references" or "verifies." References are typically the people you put down as having known you for the last 7+ years. They get interviewed in person typically and get asked a wide range of questions. Verifier's are usually just used to confirm you worked at a job, went to a school etc. They might get asked an additional question or two but not as in depth and possibly by mail. He also said that one "bad" review by a boss isn't the end of the world, assuming it isn't something like "Such and such was a drug addict." They basically treat it like an outlier.
  16. It's after you get selected. You basically just confirm everything you said in your SF86 and he goes off and start investigating.
  17. They got a lot more serious about them after the whole Snowden thing. My friend said that for a TS they interview everyone on your SF86, while for a secret they might interview 2 or 3. Were you already selected for WOFT? I think the timer sort of starts after your interview with the investigator at MEPs.
  18. He didn't do anything involving enlisted soldiers. He said it usually took 1-3 months though to do a secret and up to a year to do a top secret. I know some people don't get it before they ship though, I mean Tesla didn't get his until a week after showing up for WOCS.
  19. I think they've become a lot more in depth in the past few years. My buddy used to do them for DoD contractors, and he said that even for "secret" clearances he went to a lot of peoples houses and asked them questions.
  20. That would make sense to me, at that point you're a Warrant officer. I really couldn't see them not allowing you to drive after you graduate WOCS.
