  1. There are no statistics for the acceptance rate criteria you are specifying. Army likes the whole person concept and a lot of those statistics aren't quantifiable. A "solid packet" with flight hours and a degree can also be an applicant having no degree or flight hours. The Army doesn't release a percentage/rate based on certain statistics, only the number of accepted versus number of applicants. Recently they have been accepting 20 per board, but you may have 21 candidates apply (95% acceptance rate) or 69 apply (29% acceptance rate) at any given board. So the "rate" can be a crapshoot and others here are trying to tell you don't get hung up on statistics. With the changes to the 10 year commitment, there may be less applicants. When you get older and apply, maybe there will be more applicants. If a war kicks off, maybe the Army will take anyone with a pulse. This is why the adage of "your acceptance rate would be zero if you don't apply" is used around here.
  2. My cents. I don't think your age is an issue (you're still under 33). The AFS and moral waivers should be non-factors since they were both approved. I suggest dropping the butter bar for your CO-equivalent LOR, it is not really an influential rank. You should have at minimum the flight commander (O-3 at least) sign, so that is a good first fix. Most of the other in-service folks you are competing with will have at O-3 at minimum. The closer they can speak about your character and achievements the better. The EPR (referral?) is not a good look, but if it hasn't been addressed in your essay, include the reasons and mitigating circumstances.
  3. Honestly, the memo was dated 03 Jun, but wasn't in general public until two days ago. Good chance they didn't know about it, but also good chance they may hide it from you too. I had recruiters convinced BN interviews were still a thing last month.
  4. Probably depends on where you are located. You should check a website or call. My local one opened back up a couple of weeks ago with appointments and some social distancing rules in place.
  5. I'm thinking Army will start pushing dates to the right as much as possible to achieve its newfound maximum retention.
  6. In AF speak, it is whoever is afforded "G-series" orders and/or the officers to sign off on your EPR. It should start with your FLT/CC, but it can also start with the SQ/CC and then the GP/CC in a traditional WG-GP-SQ structure. The GP/CC is usually quite removed from you, so it is in your best interests to get as close to people you work with on a more frequent basis. You just need to check how your unit is structured. I had a weird ass structure for my LORs where my first line was an O-6 (Division Chief) and another O-6 (Commander) as the second. Some others may have a 1-star as the first line.
  7. There is no June board. Boards are bimonthly, with the next one in July (unless it changes again).
  8. According to FRAGO 24/EXORD 144-20, initial flight physicals are back on.
  9. This is for part 1 right? If you are AD (or under military dental in any way), the 2808 and 2807-1 should be it assuming no waivers (such as a CRS/PRK). If you are civ, there may be an additional DD2813 for the dental to be done by your civilian dentist.
  10. Local AAF aeromed says no initials until 30 May now, still subject to change with things going on of course. Recruiter says they can put in a waiver if I wanted to be in the May board since I already had a previous physical, but I think that will be unlikely.
  11. Hi all. I was on my way to my part 2 and just informed by the local aeromed folks all initial physicals are temporarily halted for now (for obvious reasons). Flight nurse stated even if they could complete the paperwork, Rucker will not be working or approving initial 1Ws. Seems like certain departments/specialties are shutting down too. Obviously this is only one/two sources of information, but not surprised. I want to see if this is the case for anyone else. If so, hopefully this can be a thread to push info out when they resume.
  12. For Street to Seat, it should just be the 2808 with the stamp. There should be a blue, square stamp on each of the pages (or PDF) with a date, "qualified", and class 1W in the infobox. The 3.1 with PULHES they didn't take mine, but needed the PULHES from the USMEPCOM 680-3ADP with DAT that should've been forwarded to your recruiter after you passed the initial MEPS.
  13. Question for civilian board folks: Did they bring back recruiting battalion interviews and handwritten essays?
