  1. There should be a POC on your selection letter you got in your email. Contact them and let them know what you have going on. They may be able to help.
  2. WOBC is a 3 week course with various subjects covering leadership and some basic Army intros. You will also shoot the pistol qualification course during this time. Most people under perform in WOBC and don’t realize it is used to calculate your final OML for selection. Wait times vary after WOCS but the biggest stall is usually SERE. I’m not sure how long that is now (It was 3 months for me due to COVID). You will be filled into courses by B-CO as they see fit. Usually this has to do with whatever component you’re in. Sometimes NG or reserve get priority other times they don’t. Just depends. If you’re on hold you’ll be assigned to some sort of duty position. Most people are put in HONDET (honors detail) and the rest go into staff positions around the post. Once you start flight training you shouldn’t have any extra duty unless you get pulled for quarantine or some other reason and you get delayed. Don’t worry about anything right now, just do one thing at a time. Good luck.
  3. Shoot me a message if you want, might be able to clear up any questions you have. I’m a PS Coastie finishing up primary next month. I went through BCT as an E-6.
  4. Still a solid program to consider for those of us within the limits. Also for all my prior USCG homies, it’s AFS not including prior USCG active time. Hopefully the they will consider AFS waivers moving forward at some point as they will lose a lot of solid future Coasties. I always enjoyed flying with input from other service experiences.
  5. Maximum age for USCG DCA program is 35. Waivers are considered. Minimum 500 hours rated. All of the requirements are on USCG recruiting under the “DCA” Direct Commission Aviator program outline. I worked with several prior WOs before in switched from the CG to the Army.
  6. Depends, each state sets their own rules. I was selected in the NG in a state that took S2S as well as sister service applicants (I was in a sister service when I applied). I ultimately chose to take an active duty spot but it’s possible. You have to speak to the state’s WOSM manager. Call around to states that you are potentially interested in. https://www.nationalguard.com/contacts/wosm
  7. That’s not true. The old 6yr or new 10yr obligation to the Army for aviation does not begin until completion of flight training. That runs concurrent with whatever obligation you signed to get to BCT and after WOCS.
  8. Also... I’m not saying the street to seat board doesn’t have prior service applicants. Just two separate processes. Don’t confuse them.
  9. I think you guys are mixing the process. The S2S and active boards are in no way connected other than they occur at the same time. The active duty board only selects applicants from the Army and sister services who are eligible and they have consistently selected at least 65 or so every other month for I don’t know how long give or take a few. They also consistently have people who are not selected. The active duty message won’t be out until the middle or end of next week. The participant numbers you are talking about are just civilians. Zero chance there is only 36 for both boards. While that number is low I’ve seen many posts on here where it was like 40/50/60 so I mean I guess I get it but that just means better selection odds for the 36. Usually it’s like 20 or so selected for the civilians. They also have the Commission Officer to Warrant board this month (and November if I’m not mistaken) and that is super competitive with many interested applicants. Is there a chance I’m wrong? Absolutely. Here’s my thoughts... 10 year ADSO is going to decrease interest enough to create another shortage on top on the shortage. They’ll have to lower it back down to 6 or 8.
  10. Don’t stress it, 3/4 points is a pass. If you fail you’ll get 1 more attempt the following day. If you fail that you will likely get recycled to the next class. Use known points, if you try to dead reckon you will get lost. The points are luck of the draw some are way easier than others.
  11. My class is the first to start. Our first flight is this week.
  12. Sounds like he’s a great candidate. He will only compete against other civilians. If you search in this forum you’ll find some results posted. Typically it seems to be around 30%. I have a couple youngsters in my group in flight training right now. They’re doing just fine.
  13. This your class @Ragnar? If so you get what you wanted???
