  1. Im pretty confident I'll be held for quite a bit no matter what. Deff guna submit everything asap, but between skipping basic, skipping wocs maybe, and getting bumped up to CW2 for being a prior O, yea too much paperwork=dragged out start date
  2. No clue on how I'd get down there. And you're saying I can submit all the supporting docs, which I assume are my commissioning documents, prior to ever getting to Rucker? Or I'd have to wait til I'm down there and just hang around until everything gets approved.
  3. Civ applicant here. If accepted, I will not have to go to basic (prior Army) and probably won't have to go to WOCS (prior Officer). If this turns out to be true and I report straight to WOBC, does anybody know if lack of basic and wocs requirements will push my ship date to the left or the right?
  4. Missed the past 3 boards. Oh well. Maybe March will be the month. Anyways. Stats are: Age: 28 Sift: 61 APFT: 300 Education: B.S. degree, one semester of M.A Flight time: 13.5 hours. Some aerobatic flight. Prior Service: Army SGT, Navy O-2 Flight phys: approved LOR: O-5, E-9, CW-5 No waivers
  5. you a marine? first guess was AF and wondered how a lt col found himself in an f18.
  6. I've heard 368s from the IRR can be quick as long as you get in contact with the right person. And a recruiter I've been in contact with at HQ told me that stuff can get done post board acceptance but I've heard otherwise majority of the time
  7. My recruiter told me the release can happen after I’m accepted which I half don’t believe. ill go into the IRR on Jan 1 but my packet is due on Jan 6th so I’m nervous about the 368 holding me back
  8. How long did it take? And was the dd368 part of your packet?
  9. Im in the same boat. Started my packet while I was AD, but when my board meets ill be out of the military completely. I was advised to keep my packet as is, with the 3.2 and 3.3.
  10. My stats btw: Age: 29 SIFT: 61 APFT: 300 College: 2 bachelor degrees, 1 semester of grad work LOR: CW5 Chinook pilot, 0-5 Navy jet pilot and program manager of navy flight school, Navy E-9 I worked for Prior Service: 4 years Enlisted Army comms guy, left as an E-5, 2 years Naval Officer, left as an O-2 Flight physical all good My biggest hurdle is that I attended Navy flight school. Theres a reg against you having attended another branch's flight school then going over to another one. That will be my only waiver that I need
  11. dont be concerned. It's either a good thing, neutral thing, or a slight bad thing. In any case there isn't anything you can do about it. If you have the numbers and dont have enough negatives to undo them, theyll take you.
  12. And im waiting on 1 LOR and need to take a photo and PT test but other than that yep all done.
  13. Thought so. My recruiter told me my stuff is due to him by December 2nd. Im AD but ill be out by January so im going through a civilian board. Ive heard some say it will help me stand out....others say that it's not what theyre looking for in that board so my packet will go straight into the shredder.... idk
  14. Just cold call man. Be agressive. You may only make 50% of your shots, some may not engage you, but if you walk away with 1 or 2 LORs then you did your job. LORs from people who know you are very important but if you need a senior CWO to endorse you and don't know one, I found 2 that appreciated my willingness to travel, walk into a unit with confidence and ask for help to build my career. They made me earn the LOR but they were more than willing to help.
