  1. Hello, I have been searching the boards but didn’t find any solid information on this. I am enlisted and building a packet for WOFT. I am wondering if those of you in my position had to write an essay AND the summary, or if the summary IS the essay? are they two separate things? I have already written my summary, do I need to also write a separate essay? Thank you for any info!
  2. Good Morning everyone, Currently submitted for the January 2021 Board, and looking forward to selection results. Hoping to get a good thread going here so everyone can get a good idea of where they're at. Good luck everyone! Age: 18 Flight Physical: Stamped, No Waivers GT: 130 AFQT: 93 SIFT: 58 Flight Hours: 5 Rotary Wing, PPL course ACFT/OPAT: No ACFT taken for S2S, Heavy on OPAT Education: High School Diploma With High Honors 3.86, Technical School for EMT, Deferred enrollment for University LORS: Fire Captain, Fire Chief, Police officer, E
  3. I'm looking for some feedback on my WOFT essay that I wrote. Its only the first draft but I need brutal honesty. If its complete garbage or not what the board is looking for I need to know. I'm pretty new to the army and am a pfc in the infantry at the moment. I've completed a year training cycle with my unit and have been to JROTC. Ill be going to air assault soon to be more competitive with my woft packet. Most of my experience is outside the army. I'm 30 years old with a lot of experience with other jobs. Why I want to be a Warrant Officer Stagna
  4. Maybe this can be a sticky/pinned thread? I thought it would be helpful to have a thread that has the stats of everyone who has been selected on the forum. That way, it will help answer the question, “Here are my stats, what are my chances of being selected?” So, if you get selected, add your stats here for others to see! To start, I’ve compiled a list of the members I know that have been selected in the past year or so. There’s probably some I missed. If I missed you, I’m sorry. You can post and add your stats, or you can message me, and I will input them (so as to keep it in somewh
  5. Hopefully we can get some good conversations going here. I couldn’t find a thread for the November 2020 board so please let me know if there is actually a thread already started. I submitted my packet a few weeks ago and I’m just wondering what everyone else is looking like. My big concerns right now are the waiver approvals (active federal service I’m at 11 years and my second waiver is for ETS within 12 months). Quick background on my self, I’m active duty Marines. I have been in for 11 years, 6 deployments (three within special operations). Age: 29 Flight ph
  6. We've been hitting the whole 10 year ADSO should you join thing pretty hard lately, and while there's some value in that, it's not relevant to those of you who have already started down this path. I enjoy writing and talking about myself so I'll share some stories about the days when you do fly. Maybe that will help your motivation, or maybe not. If you have stories of your own feel free to add them in. I'll start off with one of my favorite missions during my career, which was the multi-purpose range complex in Korea. We spent 9 months on a rotation in Korea as our last hurrah befor
  7. New packet deadline was yesterday! I hope ya'll got yours submitted! AGE : 23 RANK : E-5, 4yrs AD 68W GT : 117 SIFT : 58 APFT : 281 EDUCATION : 65 credits PHYSICAL : Stamped LOR : O-3, O-5, CW5 DEPLOYMENT: 1 WAIVERS : None
  8. I have written out a few rough drafts and revisions to my essay and had some peers give me advice. This is what I have so far. If you have the time please give it a read and give some insight or advice on what I should change, add, remove, etc. Some background on me before the essay. I am a 68W, PFC with a year and a half of service. I was a holdover at airborne school (injury before I even started) for 8 months. I just got to my unit a couple weeks ago, and my leadership is all for sending me to do greater things. I have not taken the SIFT yet, but I have a study guide and
  9. Hey guys, I'm very new here and look forward to hearing back from some of you and hopefully answering some questions myself eventually. I'll be sending in a packet as a street to seater sometime soon and was wondering if anyone knew the next board day and deadline to submit? Thanks.
  10. Hello, I'm applying to Army WOFT with the hopes of flying UH-60s and starting to work with a recruiter, however I have a few twists in my application that aren't standard. I also need some guidance for my essay. I'm a Civil Air Patrol cadet, and I'll be a C/2dLt by the time I actually sign my contract. I've been in it for 5 years and have been super active, with both flight experience and emergency services experience from it. Would they be interested in hearing about that? Would they only be interested in a few things (e.g. Search and Rescue Find Ribbon, Disaster Relief Ribbon with a V,
  11. Hello all! I am currently putting together a WOFT packet. I have a few letters of recommendation from people who know me, however I've heard to be competitive I should have a letter from an aviator preferably a CW4. I was wondering how accurate this is. I don't know any aviators but would be willing meet with one for a conversation/interview to see about getting a letter of recommendation. I live in GA, within easy driving distance to Ft Benning, Ft Rucker, Hunter Army Airfield etc. Is there anyone on this form that would be willing to meet with me at your convenience for a possible LOR?
  12. Civilian here, working on my WOFT packet for the reserves. I got a meeting with the company commander of a local unit that I'd like to fly for. I'm not sure if it's an interview or an informational meeting, but I'm guessing by how this came about that it might be a little bit of both. Originally, I got in touch with the unit administrator asking what I needed to do in order to be considered for a slot with the unit. She asked me some basic questions and then followed-up later asking for my resume, saying she'd pass it along to the company commander to see if he's interes
  13. This thread is for those who are on the Commissioned Officer side of the Army looking to apply to WOFT... There are scattered answers on various threads for the commissioned side looking to revert, but I thought it would be a good idea to dedicate a thread specific to it. I know there are several of us on the forum who can help answer questions. For the most part, the process for applying is the same as everyone else, but there are some extra steps you have to take to make things happen. Army computer systems and what not have a panic attack when we try and do this, so we have to jump though
  14. So on USAREC the board schedule says May 15 is the packet deadline. I've been waiting to get the flight physical for 2 months now and stuff is just now opening up. I've heard though that the May 15th deadline is in flux and there's been changes to everything and I was just wondering if anyone had more concrete information on the boards. Also Fort Belvoir VA does flight physicals, if you're having a hard time finding a place. I just figured that out lol
  15. I'm currently an MS-2 enrolled as a contracted cadet rolling towards the end of my sophomore year. Only months ago not only did I find out that Warrant Officers fly in the Army, but that flying is their primary duty as an aviation specialist. Initially I had supreme interest in becoming an aviation officer, however I understand that accessions don't always serve every cadet's wants whether they truly deserve a specific branch or not. Aside from that point, even if I were to branch aviation, I'm more invested in learning everything there is about the fleet of aircraft the Army employs, and focu
  16. Hey everyone, Putting together my packet for WOCS/WOFT as a civilian. Looking pretty good score and PFT-wise. I am worried about my moral waivers though. I have to submit waivers for (3) offenses that were dropped, expunged, or non-adjudicated. To summarize, I have three charges which were dropped and/or expunged from my public record. As a part of my due diligence to the United States Army, I must list all charges regardless of their sealed status if an arrest was made or probation was served. As a juvenile, I was arrested at a checkpoint for a DUI, but was released later that night due to
  17. What is the process of picking or getting accepted by a reserve unit for WOFT, outside of putting together a packet? Would it be wise to start contacting units near me once I've completed my packet? I asked my recruiter this question and he was honest with me saying he wasn't sure since he's only done active-duty packets, but that doing woft reserves is 100% possible. I've read a lot on here about going guard, but there's not a lot of info on the reserves. My state (FL) does not allow civilians to do the woft program (I asked the wosm) so that's not a possibility since I'm no
  18. Hello everyone I Just finished my WOFT packet I'm just wondering if I can get some insight on my possibilities of selection from current Warrant Officers and people recently selected. SIFT: 47 PFT: 249 LOR: SEAL Master Chief, SEAL Commander, Army Major, and my current flight instructor who is an ex ranger. GT: 120 AQFT: 85 Flight time so far: 12 hours. But I will have at least 18 before I turn my packet in. In all honesty I am mostly worried about my PFT because I know it's not that great. I know I can get it to at least a 280 in a couple months but I've alr
  19. Hello all, I’m new to the forum (obviously), but I’ve been lurking for a while. I’m an active duty Marine (E-4) with an FY22 EAS. I originally intended to join the military to become an Officer and fly helicopters, but at 17 years old I decided that it was imperative that I gain experience as an enlisted man first before pursuing a commission. I don’t regret my decision to enlist, but now’s the time to start thinking about the next chapter of my life. After much thought and discussion with my wife, I decided that pursuing a greater leadership role and an aviation career is more
  20. So, after doing some research on the whole 153A path in the army, I've come up with a few questions/comments/concerns about nearly every part of the process I'm hoping to have addressed before I start my career in the army. But for your sake, here are the main ones. 1. LoRs. This is the only part I'm not too worried on as I have a army guard posting 15 minutes away from me that carries a dozen or so 60's with a couple CWO's on base, some time this year I'll contact the unit and ask if I could get a interview from any CW3+ and hopefully get a LOR or 2. Aside from that, my pops served 34 s
  21. Hello everyone. I was selected earlier this year and am set to attend WOCS 11 MAR 2020. I had a quick vision question: My eye sight is 20/30 correctable to 20/15 but my left eye is barely correctable to 20/20 and is 20/40 on bad days. Are wearing glasses a pain while in training? Can we get prescription sunglasses? Is this even really an issue? Thanks in advance!
  22. Hi im currently filling out my WOFT packet for street to seat and was wondering if i could get some tips to best further my chances. I am a recent Highschool graduate and have taken all the way up to the SIFT at this time. im scheduling a Flight Physical at the moment and working hard to get 90's in each category of the PT test. im working on getting in contact with flight Warrents for LOR. My uncle retired as a CW4 and is helping me out with it but i was wondering on any other way to get in contact with people for LOR's. any other advice on the WOFT for me would be gladly appreciated.
  23. Here is an in-depth video detailing the flight physical. This tells you what to expect for the WOFT flight physical on the civilian side of things. I also faced a few issues as it relates to color vision so anything you want to know just ask. It also has time stamps in the description if you are wanting info on one specific thing.
  24. Hi all, I am currently finishing my last semester of undergrad in Louisiana. My recruiter told me one of my LOR absolutely has to come from a pilot. I have no pilot contacts. How should I got about getting this LOR. Can I show up on a base and start asking around? Can I call someone? Thank you for the help, AH
