  1. Just a heads up, there’s a new article on Army.mil that says the Army is placing a temporary hold on new recruits to basic training. My recruiter just let me know we may run in to issues and that he will keep me posted. The article says it’s only a two week pause but my report date is May 6th so we will see if it pushes everybody.
  2. Negative. Patiently waiting for any dates so I know when i'll be PCS'ing from Germany!
  3. Damn how’d you get a date so quick and so soon? November board selects were getting June dates.
  4. AGE: 26 MILITARY: AD USAF, AIRCRAFT MECHANIC, 6YRS TIS, E5 GT: 110 SIFT: 43 APFT: 294 EDUCATION: SOME COLLEGE 3.0 GPA FLIGHT: NONE LOR: SQUADRON COMMANDER O-5, GROUP COMMANDER O-6, CCWO CW5 WAIVERS: NONE (HAD PRK DONE IN APRIL '19) MISC: AIRMAN LEADERSHIP SCHOOL, C-17A ENGINE RUN CERTIFIED, TOP BLOCK NCOER's FQ-S FIRST LOOK ON JANUARY BOARD Spent over a year building my packet. I built a strong resume, had strong LoR's, and trained my ass off for the APFT. Also studied my ass off for the SIFT but fell very short there. I do not know what goes in to the selection process but my advice is to do your best in every area that you have control over. I believe they use a whole person concept when rating you. Also, don't look like a slob in your DA photo. Cheers and good luck to all future applicants!
  5. https://recruiting.army.mil/ISO/AWOR/sister_service/ Start here ^ Use that link with all the info provided here on Vertical Reference. I completed the packet with almost no assistance from a recruiter until I absolutely needed one. Many people are willing to help, but nobody will hold your hand through the process. Start now though, my process took a year start to finish (I am sister service, OCONUS, and required PRK) Good Luck!
  6. Do you guys know where AD members can check if their packet is “board ready”?? The recruiter I am in contact with says I am good to go but I would like to get my eyes on it myself if possible.
  7. I have similar stats and just submitted in November for the January board. I still have time to submit updates and would find it very helpful to get some eyes on a selected packet as well!
  8. Good luck on the 2nd look! Why do you think you were NS??
  9. Why do you say this? What makes you believe they look at the whole person concept and what about your packet makes you feel that way? Kind of want to compare yours to mine I guess.
  10. Packet officially submitted after a year of squaring it away. Weight lifted, anxiety kickin' in! Good luck to everybody submitting in November for the January board.
  11. BLUF: passed the SIFT w/ a 43. Not happy. Anybody else get selected with a similar score? If so, what advice can you offer? (other stats detailed below) Just wrapped up my SIFT with a score of 43 and I am extremely discouraged to say the least. Really upset with my score because I studied my tail off using the FAA helicopter handbook, the Barron's study guide, the Accepted INC study guide, hand written flash cards, and I scored above 90 on every practice test I could find. I saved the SIFT for last to allow ample study time and it has taken me a year to get to this point where my packet is about ready for submission. Not sure what went wrong but there's nothing I can do about it now but fine tune the other areas of my packet. I would really appreciate any advice that this community has to offer. Thank you all. STATS AGE: 26 MIL/TIS: AD USAF/6 YEARS E-5 GT: 111 SIFT: 43 APFT: 294 LOR: O-5, O-6, CW5 (aviator) EDUCATION: 44 CREDITS TOWARDS BS/2.9 GPA PHYSICAL: STAMPED NO WAIVERS NO MORAL WAIVERS
  12. Yeah im not sure what they look for in the civilian board. I've only done my research for the AD board. But nice, all I have left is the SIFT scheduled for Nov 7th and My packet has already been sent to a local CW5 for his initial review before we interview.
