  1. I would much rather go active so if anyone knows if you can apply to active WOFT from reserves or IRR, please let me know. My recruiter of course said it would be super easy, but I'm going to take that with a grain of salt.
  2. I'm going on the assumption that my year will be a worst case scenario, meaning low acceptance rate. with that assumption, I am trying to figure out ways to be better then the next applicant. I don't want to do the reserves though and end up having a tough time transferring to active WOFT, so that is my big concern now.
  3. Thanks for the reply! I am looking to go WOFT for active after I finish college. I figured that one way to boost my packet would be to serve in the reserves while in college. this is beneficial because I can learn about the Army aviation community, build connections, possibly get flight time as aircrew, and get money which I can use to get private flight lessons. The only downside of this, that I can see, is that I will have much less free time then other students.
  4. Hi everyone, I am going to be attending college next year. I have my sights set on WOFT after I graduate. A recruiter told me that I should enlist as a 15t (Blackhawk maintainer) first and then go to college on the GI Bill and, after I graduate, put in my WOFT packet, and this will look really good on my application. I am hesitant to do this because then I would finish college at 26-28 years old, which I would rather not do. Would it be worth it to enlist as a 15t in the reserves so I can serve while in college and then put in my WOFT packet after I graduate college? Would being a reserve 15T look good on my WOFT packet? Also, would it be better to apply for WOFT while in the active reserves or the IRR? Thank you in advance for the advice and I apologize if this question has been asked before.
  5. Hi everyone, I am going to be attending college next year. I want to serve as a Warrant Officer and fly helos after I graduate.

I am hesitant to do this because then I would finish college at 26-28 years old, which I would rather not do. Also, I am using my dad’s GI Bill so I don’t need my own. On the other hand, I don’t want to wait 5 years before I can serve. Would it be worth it to enlist as a 15t in the reserves so I can serve while in college and then put in my WOFT packet after I graduate? Would this look good on my WOFT packet? Also, would it be better to apply for WOFT while in the active reserves or the IRR? Thank you in advance for the advice and I apologize if this question has been asked before.
