Hi- I'm a junior hoping to apply to WOFT during Senior year. I am a bit confused as to when I should be doing everything. So when should the first recruiter meeting happen, when should the packet be finished, when should I collect LOR's, and when would would the Battalion Board interviews happen? Sorry if this seems like a lot, I just want to make sure I'm coordinating my time well.
Hey, I am a highschool applicant in my junior year of schooling. I'm looking to apply in my senior year for WOFT. My parents, however, are extremely strict and won't accept anything to do with the military. While advice on how to convince them is appreciated, I know they won't ever budge on the issue, trust me I've tried for at least the past year. If it comes down to it, I will go against their will and apply. The real question is, is parental consent required to complete the application? I know the answer seems like an obvious yes, but I was hoping there would be some kind of loophole. Another thing to consider would be my age by the time I apply. I would turn 18 in January 3rd, towards the end of my senior year. Can I apply around then, in time to accept college apps in case I get denied? Thanks before hand.
Hi- I'm new to this forum, I was looking for any army aviation forum but I guess this is the closest thing to it. I emailed an Army recruiter on the statistics for High school applicants to WOCS. Surprisingly I got an answer: "Based on the latest WOFT board, to be competitive for selection you should have at least GT Score (part of the ASVAB test) of 123 or higher, Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) score of 260 or higher, GPA 2.8 or higher, SIFT Score of 59 or higher and your letters need to be from key/influential people who actually know you. There were 51 total applicants. 50 were selected and 1 were not. 26 selected as HS Graduate, 6 had an Associate's degree, 18 had a Bachelor's Degree and 0 had a Master's Degree" Woah, these numbers make absolutely no sense. Is the guy talking about Illinois applicants, or something? Because both the number of people applying and the number of high school-to-flightschool selectees is magical. I was told that almost no highschoolers ever make it. Anybody care to enlighten me?
