  1. Top person in my class was a Street to Seater and top 4 Warrants (with another Street to Seater in the mix) beat out all LTs collectively. Top LT was a Westpointer. Never know who's gonna be sh*t hot or hot sh*t.
  2. Just don't get the one from Helicoptersonly. I'm on my third one from them. Quality is sh*t and it's expensive. Had it moderately full of gear one night when one strap just ripped at the seam where it attaches to the bag, while I was walking. Few days earlier, one of the inside compartment zippers broke because of the poor quality. They won't stay zipped up at all either. I asked for a replacement before realizing I'd rather just have my money back.
  3. I'm slow AF and it was fine. Just don't stop running. Shuffle if you have to. They'll give you sh*t but who cares.
  4. Whether it's worth it, only you can answer that question. Is it achievable? Absolutely but it's up to you because you have to sell yourself to the board. Anybody can be selected imo but you have to know how to highlight whatever you have to offer to the Army. Don't tell them how much you want to do this. Write about how your experience can benefit the Army. Not gonna lie it's a lot of work but if you really want to do this you shouldn't mind.
  5. Consider the Army will wear you down. They will get their share of your mental and phsical strength, especially in SF and during deployments. I'd be hesitant going balls to the wall if I knew I'd have to pass a flight physical in a few years. That'd be my main concern.
  6. Re: class dates. Last time I checked milsuite, the word was that "all information and blackboard login information will be pushed out on or about 20190704."
  7. I'm beginning to think that with younger applicants, they may want to see how persistent you are. Like do you care enough to improve where possible. Just a guess though. Older folks have a greater variety of experience (work, school, life experience, etc...) in their package. You're also not remotely close to the age cutoff so there is no "rush" to select them. These are just guesses though. Would be interesting to see age and gender stats for the past year or so.
  8. Wow, 61 applicants feels like a lot. Congrats to those selected!
  9. Right. For what it's worth, this is my take and what I did/why I included 6. Call me confident or arrogant but I knew I had good chances. How to show them I'm worthy? By highlighting how I embody the whole-person-concept in these letters. One LoR was about how I am committed to physical fitness beyond what the APFT requires. Another focused on my high GPAs which demonstrates scholastic aptitude. Another one focused on my leadership abilities. Even in the one from a run off the mill retail job, my former boss made sure to emphasize my work integrity and trustworthiness. See where I'm
  10. I know and at some point YOU were helping ME! That sort of math does not check out... And thank you. BCT starting August and WOCS in October.
  11. I've been lurking around your progress and am frustrated for you that your package didn't make it to the May board. I wish you the best of luck for this one! (Side note: I had 6 LoRs too.)
  12. That sounds a bit weird. My recruiter scheduled my physical for me. The flight surgeon's office won't contact you about it, afaik. After the MEPS medical, I didn't need to send LASIK or other medical paperwork anywhere. I just brought a copy when I went to the flight physical, to be safe
  13. No! I was rooting for you on this board!
