  1. Roger. If I was to enlist now I would most likely go the 14 series as they are considered combat arms and they are in dire need of all ranks and they don't cause the same physical toll that the 11 series jobs do. In your opinion, do you think the ARNG would be a suitable compromise as it would pay for my community college, whilst also (to a certain degree) allowing me chose my involvement with them? Or, on the flip side of things, If I abstain from all military involvement until I am able to drop my packet, do you think it'll ultimately be worth it even if it wo
  2. I recently had a comprehensive talk with my recruiter regarding my career ambitions with the armed forces (& specifically aviation) and consequently he left me with 2 decisions to contemplate over the weekend. Due to the fact that these are quite substantial and life altering options, I will most likely tell him that it's a impossible conclusion to make over the weekend and I will require more time before I reach a verdict. However, there is still a critical choice to be made, ergo I come to this forum today seeking some guidance from anyone who is willing to provide a fresh perspective on
  3. Anyone know why it's relevant to the army how long someone plays videogames or flies in simulators?
  4. Damn, had me excited for a second there. Any advice on how a civi would get his LoRs? who I would reach out to, and what would look good in my packet etc...
  5. When is the first ACFT for the WOFT packet?
  6. You could absolutely be correct in stating that it's too short for what It needs to be, but as it seems most of the websites that provide the information on the proper length, formatting et. are either shut down or pushed to the back of the google search results. But compared to what I've seen on other civilians doing the same thing I am, it's right on par with what it needs to be. But I'll be sure to look into it more, thank you. I appreciate that, thanks!
  7. Hi, I'm currently putting together my packet for the WOFT program and I needed some second opinions on my essay portion. I'm primarily concerned about my second paragraph, but a overall look and critique on the essay would make me more than grateful to you for taking your time to break it apart. Please be as honest as you can Andrew Mueller 4/3/2020 Aviation Why I want to be an army aviator. I have wanted to serve in the military since my adolescence. I come from a family rich with military service, and I have come to admir
  8. Besides good LOR's and decent SIFT & ASVAB, PT scores (etc) what can I do in this upcoming year that would make my packet standout more to the board? I'm just starting it but thus far it's relatively unimpressive In terms life accomplishments as I don't really do much with my days. What would be good examples of community work that I could do to add more cushion to my packet?
  9. Right, but this is a hard pill for me to swallow and do because Army Aviation has always been my dream/goal. I appreciate the insight, though 😕 like what? cause it's always been the warrant officer path that's been appealing to me
  10. right, but I was thinking of alternatives in the likelihood "his" waiver would be denied. Mainly cause my "friend" has anaphylactic reactions to peanuts, witch is pretty much a DQ under almost every circumstance from what I've heard.
  11. most likely then it wasn't anaphylactic, witch mi amigos is, and if its anaphylactic there's almost a 0.00% chance of getting a waiver, thank you though 😕
  12. Right, but getting a waiver from what I've heard is next to impossible for peanuts, and if that gets denied then the army knows said friend has a allergen and will most likely permanently DQ him from service. Do you know if your friend got a waiver, or did she just keep it hush? Also, It seems that being around dust whenever he's in or around five guys or texas roadhouse or other such environments with a lot of dust particles, It has little to none effect on him. But it could be different in FT Rucker like you said, I guess
  13. so, they don't force you to eat peanuts? But no, my friend is fine touching peanuts, just not consuming. And I only asked the original question cause I thought I heard they do a allergy panel when you get your class 1 flight physical, to see if you were lying about not being allergic to anything.
  14. So if I, uh *ahem* a friend of mine theoretically had a peanut allergy that would be potentially disqualifying, and nevertheless decided to go into WOFT w/o informing the recruiter of said allergen anyway... would "he" be able to play it off until fully qualified on a select airframe, then "discover" that he had a peanut allergen? Again, asking for a friend.
  15. First and foremost, I apologize for the late response to each and every one of you. I did not have enough time to hop on this forum in the last few days as I would've hoped. This is actually very helpful, thank you. I had no idea i needed 15 college credits but I'll be sure to start working on that now, rather than later If I want to commission when I turn 18. I didn't really think of the benefits I could have for listing my martial arts experience until you mentioned it, thank you for that advice as well. Right, i wasn't treating the deficit as a excuse for me to do less
