  1. I wear my contacts most days. You just have to have prescription glasses in your flight bag with you on the helicopter. I keep a pair in my bag, and wear them if I forget my contacts or something.
  2. Youll be fine. I have astigmatism and they gave me 5 pairs of prescription glasses and a contact prescription for flight school
  3. Supposedly about 7 out of the 11 wanted Apaches, the rest didn’t have a choice in the matter.
  4. There was a female in my class with braces, youll be fine.
  5. Praying there are this many UH60s when I get to selection!
  6. 1 week out from BCT. Looking forward to seeing everyone that will be joining from this board! And thanks to everyone on this forum for all the help and advice leading up to getting selected!
  7. I agree completely. Doing this got my flight physical checked off at Rucker rather than a couple of months.
  8. Appreciate the info folks. Starting to hit me with moving out of my apartment, closing out accounts, etc getting ready to leave, the anxiety is real haha
  9. Yeah I hear ya. I guess if there is one thing I've learned through the WOFT process, especially flight physicals, if you want it done, you gotta reach out and make sure it's getting done. Just didn't want to get out of BCT to find out I have to wait for another WOCS class date due to my clearance not being finished, but I guess it's out of my hands at this point.
  10. Who would I contact to check this? I spoke to OPM today and I confirmed that they were 100% done with it and it had been sent to the Army for adjudication 9/25.
  11. That was my thought, but when I called OPM they stated it was done September 27th? So I guess that's where my confusion lies at the moment.
  12. Picked up on July board, leaving for BCT 1/15. Since July, I haven't heard anything about my security clearance after my initial phone call with a person at OPM confirming my information. Fast forward to now, I still haven't heard anything. My recruiter moved so I got stuck with new guy who has no idea about my packet or anything. I've asked him multiple times for an update and he said he didn't have that kind of access. I finally call the head of the recruiting station and she says that it's good to go and I'm good to ship next month. Obviously I can ship without a secret clearance, I was just more concerned with it being done by the time basic was over. I made some calls and got with someone at OPM who told me my initial clearance was done in September, which makes me assume it was then sent to the DOD for final adjudication? I haven't heard anything else, so I'm either assuming I have a clearance and no news is good news, or it's still in adjudication? None of my references were called or anything which was why I was concerned, but I have read that a lot of times if everything checks out they won't call references on a secret. Does anyone else know a number to call to check if the clearance is final, or should I assume it's complete and I'm good to go?
  13. One thing I practiced a lot was the math. I had the ASVAB for Dummies book just to refresh my math skills, and it ended up being a great tool for me.
  14. ^^ Call the Rucker Help Desk and ask for Nikki. Someone told me to ask for her, I told her about my deadline as a civilian candidate and she was incredibly nice and helpful, had my flight physical pushed through and stamped the next day.
  15. Wow, those are great dates. I told them the same thing when I signed in July and they said 6 month wait minimum! Congrats
  16. I wouldn't get my hopes up. I had the same feeling then signed my contract and had to wait 6 months. I got picked up in the July board, signed my contract two days later, and got a January ship date. You never know though.
  17. Street to Seat guy picked up during July board, reporting to this WOCS Class as well!
  18. Yeah I start WOCS 4/5 so Im hope they have it done by then!
  19. Anyone selected on this board hear any news about security clearances yet? I dont think any of my references or anything have been called yet either.
  20. Got it! Opened it up on safari and it gave me that option. Thanks!
