  1. When I did my initial flight physical, I was a bit high on the pulse/BP. I suppose it was that "white coat syndrome." The Flight doc just let me sit a while to relax and tested two more times, and it was fine. I've also seen it mentioned that they can put you on a 24 hour BP/Pulse device. But as z0na mentioned, taking BP medicine isn't a dis qualifier. My concern would be that you are taking BP medicine needlessly, and that your high BP was just a product of anxiety. Taking medicine could just end up causing issues on the other side of the blood pressure scale if you don't actual have high blood pressure. .
  2. Your recruiter is full of sh*t. Take a look at the selection result picture that was posted for this board. Those were all civilians. Edit: It sounds like your recruiter is trying to get out of helping you with your WOFT packet because it is too much work. Go to someone else now. Even if he is willing to help you at this point, he has already blatantly lied to you. Find a different recruiter.
  3. Glad to see you are adding some more WOFT content to YouTube! It is somewhat lacking, and there are only a few notable channels that have made videos pertaining to our situation. Hope to see you at Rucker in October.
  4. Well dang. I guess we will not be seeing any new faces. Who knows though, sometimes there are openings. I find it surprising that they did not give you priority in class date given that you are currently active-duty... You can do what I did, and just call the WOFT liaison to get an earlier class, assuming a spot opens up.
  5. Like other classes, I wanted to post this topic to see who all will be joining us in class 20-001 this October. There's already a group of us, but I figured with a recent board, we might find some new faces. If the WOCS START date on your reservation says: "22OCT2019," you are class 20-001. Reply below if you are, and I will link you the Class Facebook group / Group chat.
  6. Thanks for the input Jkray. Good luck Navy Veteran, like StockTrader said, you won't find out until you contract. My original WOCS date was Feb. of next year. I signed the contract, then called the WOFT liason to find an earlier class date. I went back to renegotiate an October WOCS class.
  7. Wanted to go ahead and bump this. I leave for Basic in a few weeks, and I wanted to be double sure that I do NOT have to do any distance learning.
  8. Addition: We also have a text group for all of those with October WOCS dates. Message me for more info.
  9. Hello, Those who have a WOCS start date of 22OCT2019 are welcome to join our class group on Facebook. Those interested, please private message me on here, and I will link you to the group. Thanks!
  10. Sorry I'm just now seeing the posts. I can read your essay, just message me on here with it.
  11. If any of you guys need help with the packet, I can do my best to help out. I was selected in May and leave in a month for Basic Training. Feel free to message me with questions or if you want me to review an essay.
  12. I'm glad I wasn't the only selectee to notice the low morale. Every time I look at anything on reddit about Army aviation, all the warrants just seem to complain. All of the pilots I know in person are 160th, so I haven't really gotten much of a view into the regular Army. I might try for 160th, especially if Regular Army is as bad as they are all saying.
  13. Yeah I didn't even go down to my underwear aside from the hernia check. The only thing close to the underwear Olympics was them taking my measurements. He checked my limbs, but not while I was moving.
  14. Got new dates: Basic: August 2019 WOCS: Late October 2019. It should be the first WOCS class for FY20.
  15. Hi, I was selected on the May board as a civilian street-to-seat. I was on my second look, so I understand exactly how it feels to be FQ-NS. One of the aviators who gave me an LOR told me, "Just remember that just like I am helping you now, make sure to help other people once you get in, it's only fair." I am offering my help to anyone who was FQ-NS in the May board, or to those going to future boards if they want to make themselves more competitive. I will say that I shouldn't be the only person you consult. Try speaking to Active-Duty Warrant's as well. There are plenty on here willing to look at your essay and resume. Feel free to send me a message with your stats, essay, and resume. You can also send any questions you have as well. Additionally, here are some tips to improve FQ-NS packets. This came straight from the board:
