  1. For my physical it was just basic joint movements and range of motion. No "underwear olympics" like at meps. But as Barney mentioned, it is likely flight surgeon dependent. I would say, don't expect to do those things, but be prepared if they are needed.
  2. Yeah it just has the report date and it says a 7 week class. From what I understand all WOCS classes are 5 weeks now so I am curious if mine will be and in what direction the class dates will shift.
  3. Did he give you the date for the class or just your class number?
  4. Agreed here. Narrow those down to the 3 best ones. The board will not have time to look at 6 and you are just making it more likely the weakest one gets read instead of the strongest one.
  5. My understanding is the PT score is weighted much less than it used to be. I am not sure when you went through, but I want to say it is worth around 2% of your OML now. Still a factor, but not nearly as bad.
  6. Yeah this is what I have heard too. The problem with lack of pilots is due to lack of the amount of applicants willing to come to the Army. In general the military has a hard time recruiting when the economy is doing well since a lot of civilian jobs are more preferable. It isn't as simple as just lowering standards to accept more of the available applicants. As we have seen come up already, the Army is trying to find more ways to retain pilots or incentivize them.
  7. That is true. Wouldn't that be a slap in the face. Edit: Did a little research just to see. According to AR 350-100 it says: "Officers who attend initial entry flight training on or after 30 September 1990 will incur a 6-year ADSO on completion of the course or voluntary termination of attendance (see AR 611–110). Officers who entered into a service agreement before 1 October 1990, will be subject to the terms of said agreement, and will serve on active duty for the period specified in the agreement." While this doesn't mean they won't change it to 8 years, it likely means it will have a start date listed and anyone in the pipeline will likely meet the cutoff for their original agreement.
  8. None yet. But the FY19 schedule released on May 4th last year so I imagine we will get class dates very soon.
  9. I don't see them retroactively extended contracts once we are already in the pipeline. I imagine it will be released with an effective start date and anyone selected for WOFT after that date will have to sign an 8 year ADSO.
  10. I was picked up on the September 2018 board.
  11. So from "unofficial" sources I have learned I will be in WOCS class 20-001. My report date is Oct 3rd, so use that however you will. Anyone else going to be joining me? Time to start getting to know my fellow flight mates.
  12. Thanks Mike! We will miss you here. You have left tons of valuable information for us and are very likely the reason a lot of the people here were picked up for WOFT. I am about to start my journey and I hope I can make it as far as you did. Like you said, it is what you make it. As one final question on your way out; do you have any tips to make your home / family life better while you are in? This is a big concern of mine going in and will be one of the primary reasons for staying in or getting out. Thanks again!
  13. Yes it is every other month. Next board is in May. Be sure to check out all the information listed on this forum. Lots of helpful information here!
