  1. For May the last day of the Board was a Friday and I believe we found out for S2S the following Tuesday or Wednesday
  2. Looks like I’ll be heading to basic at Jackson and then WOCS the exact same time as you. See you there
  3. So I signed my contract at MEPS today to ship out Oct. 4 and start WOCS Jan. 5. However, when I signed the contract it was for 3 years 17 weeks. I was under the impression that it would be for 10 years. Could somebody explain that to me? Is there another contract that I’ll sign after WOCS?
  4. Oct 4 for basic or WOCS? Trying to get a feel for what I should expect. I don’t go back to MEPS until Tuesday.
  5. Recruiter just informed me that I was accepted. Huge relief after 2 years of building my packet
  6. Any S2S guys hear anything today? My recruiter told me that I’m going to have to wait till next week to find out.
  7. From their post it looks like they were S2S and found out through their recruiter.
  8. Some guys on the March board thread said they found out on the last day of the board.

  10. If you’re using it just to practice for the aviation information part then I would advise you that there are much easier ways of going about it. You should be able to find a free FAA rotorcraft handbook just by looking online and that should have more than enough information. I would recommend learning the controls and parts of a helicopter, types of helicopters, basic aerodynamic principles of helicopter flight, and it wouldn’t hurt to touch up on some basic maneuvers and weight and balance. There most likely will be some army aviation information as well so learn everything about the army’s helicopters and their uses. For example, what is the main use of the AH-64/UH-60/CH-47. Honestly it’s one of the easier sections if you put on the time and effort. Learn it and move on to studying the math and mechanical comprehension.
  11. Would love it if you could take a look at my essay. Always looking for areas to improve. I’ll message you on IG.
  12. I would greatly appreciate any advice on how I could improve my " Why I Want to be an Army Aviator" essay for my WOFT packet. Thanks in advance. I want to be an Army Aviator because I want to be a technically proficient and mission dedicated leader. Being the son of two military veterans, who both served in aviation career fields, instilled in me a love for aviation as well as a desire to serve my country. Aviation has been a lifelong passion for me. As a child, I took every opportunity I could to learn more on the subject. In high school, I applied to a selective aerospace science technical program. Through this program I was able to begin working on my private pilot license. I was the first in my class to pass my FAA knowledge exam and was able to solo twice before graduating. Simultaneously, I joined my school’s Air Force Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps as well as the local Civil Air Patrol Squadron. These activities provided me with valuable lessons in leadership and taught me how to motivate others with confidence and integrity. I quickly earned the Billy Mitchell award which is bestowed to fewer than 15 percent of all Civil Air Patrol cadets. During my time the University of Delaware I was able to encourage my affection for education by working towards and receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Pre-Veterinary Medicine and Animal Bioscience. I saw success in advanced STEM classes such as calculus, physics, organic chemistry, and functional anatomy. I volunteered as the LEAD chair in my fraternity, Sigma Nu. LEAD is an interactive program designed by Sigma Nu with the intention of developing more ethical leaders. I have also served the State of Delaware as an ocean patrol lifeguard with an emergency medical responder certification. This opportunity taught me the importance of staying physically and mentally prepared at all times. I learned how to manage high levels of stress and deal with life or death situations quickly and calmly. My experiences in high school and at the University of Delaware have molded me into the man that I am today. I am someone who is dedicated, persistent, excited to learn and technically competent. I take pride in serving my community and hope to further expand that service to my country as a warrant officer and Army aviator. The Army would provide me the opportunity to merge my leadership skills with my love for selfless service. I would be honored to have an opportunity to dedicate my life to becoming the best warrant officer, soldier, and aviator that I can be.
  13. Wow I’ve been working on my packet for a year and a half now and had no clue there was no interview anymore. My recruiter led me to believe that it was still part of the process. I’m blown away. So after the packet is sent in it’s just a waiting game until results are out? Sorry if all this information is somewhere else on the forum. If it is please direct me to it.
