  1. I am interservice and I used the 3.3 for my CO. Make sure you follow the sample 100%.. and provide all the info asked for in the narrative block... I failed to include writer's name and unit info etc. and my helping WO said that LOR probably got overlooked on my first look. Attention to detail is very important in the packages.
  2. I am the same as you. What was your timeline for locking down housing? Before, during, after?... I am a single guy, so I have a little bit of flexibility..
  3. No idea how that works?🤨 But I found it on the Rucker website I think it was. Its like 1100 for WOs
  4. Ahhhh. So why would you pick one over the other? Im assuming the M's are more advanced? Unless you really want to go to Japan
  5. What is the difference in the blackhawk options?
  6. If school is an option, there are aviation degrees you can get along with flight training. My brother in law did this and has been an commercial airline pilot for years now. Or go through a fixed wing school like ATP or something. There are schools that will take you from the bottom all the way through commercial. Its expensive but its available.
  7. If your recruiter is motivated to do everything quickly and you're able too, by all means do it. It took me 9 months until I was board ready. However, I do not recommend rushing to take the SIFT if you're not prepared for it. If you want to be an airline pilot, there are way more fixed wing options in the other branches, if you qualify.
  8. I am going on Jan 22. I think the class start on Feb 10
  9. Sure. Its just another option. Not everyone has access to an aviation unit, but everyone has a Congressman. I got one and it got me selected the second time around. The CWO4 who looked over my packet said it was big. Also, who's to say the CWO writing the LOR isn't a stranger? Mine was..... But, you're right, to each their own. Who knows what will essentially get someone selected.... But the fancy Congress letterhead looks super cool 🤪
  10. Find local aviation units and start calling. CWOs are pretty open to helping you out. Having a CWO look over your packet is vital... Also, send an email to your local Congressman asking for assistance. Thats a big LOR is you get one.
  11. Job security, bro.... Ill take 10 years as a WO over 10 years as enlisted any day.
  12. So for the street to seat guys, this is when you get billeting and would move your stuff? After you get pinned WO1?
  13. Hey this is for the prior service USMC guys in here. I am prior service USMC, civilian now, going to WOCS in January as a S2S. Since we skip the boot camp part and go straight to WOCS, I'm am just trying to get an idea of what kind of stuff to show up with. I was sent an Introduction packet with a gear list, but obviously I don't have any of it... Any tips for arrival would be appreciated. Thanks
