  1. Yes people do. Don’t get caught up in the numbers. Reality is the numbers reflect what the Army needs. Most of the classes including mine only had diversity due to NG or AR people getting the random handful of 47s. Most classes are filled with mostly 60s and 64s. Our class had 2 C-12s which went to the top 2 warrants all of the 47s were guard excluding 1 that went to a LT. I would say there is always a handful if not more people that want C-12s due to the lifestyle that comes with the airframe. If you want 60s, finish in the top half of your class and you’ll likely have that opportunity. Finish low and needs of the Army is what you get.
  2. This was my class selection from 30SEP21. Only 1 active 47 went to an LT. Top 2 WOs picked C-12 rest were 60s and 64s.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. Also... I’m not saying the street to seat board doesn’t have prior service applicants. Just two separate processes. Don’t confuse them.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. My class is the first to start. Our first flight is this week.
  14. 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.
  15. This your class @Ragnar? If so you get what you wanted???
  16. PRT, soldier’s creed, Army song, and Warrant Officer definition. Those are the major things we’ve been told to prepare for. Make sure you have everything you can get on the checklist. Some of the items are available here and some are not available at all or sold out regularly.
  17. Not sure. That’s just what they have all of us for my class doing. Definitely getting my money’s worth on streaming.
  18. All aviation WOCs are 14 days quarantine if you are PCS. I’m on my 12th day currently. We all received conflicting information prior to arrival that we would have a 7 day quarantine and test on the 8th day. I’m not sure if that will continue moving forward, but I wouldn’t be surprised.
  19. I hope they can get you in bro. Hit me up if you need any help with anything or just throw your questions out on here. Someone definitely has experience with whatever you’re going through.
  20. Yeah, I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news but I think they may have screwed you. I would call and email your closet WO recruiter ASAP. Phone works best in my experience. Tell them everything you have been told by the local recruiter. The “only for active Army” thing is total bullshit. It’s for all applicants currently serving active duty in any of the 5 branches. I was selected last November from the US Coast Guard and I’m flying to Ft Rucker this morning. Whoever they are may have wasted like 3-6 months of your time. I really hope I’m wrong.
  21. That sounds like the street to seat timeline. If you’re currently active duty you have missed the deadline for November. Also, if you have waivers that need to be processed I wouldn’t count on that happening quickly. You are directed to backdate your packet submission from the deadline by like 6 weeks per waiver request. Now, if you are not active duty any longer things may be different. Your post seems to indicate you still are. If you are and you’re working with a local recruiter you’re talking to the wrong person. Regional Warrant Officer Recruiters should be your POC. Good luck.
  22. Based on what USAREC is outlining and what is printed on the message I think he got screwed.
  23. With your background and resume I suspect you should be approved for the waivers you are requesting. I found in my process that the way in which you write your request has a large factor as well. I would call aviation proponent when your packet is in their hands to see what if any information they will divulge. You should be able to get your WO recruiter to let you know when your packet is with them. Their recommendation for your waivers factors a great deal in G1’s final authority. Good luck.
