  1. 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 my BAC being below the minor legal limit. I personally apologized to the court and they chose to non-adjudicate and expunge my record. In December of 2014, I was arrested outside of a house for waiting in the driver’s seat of my designated driver’s car while under the influence of alcohol. I did not have keys in the ignition and was not attempting to drive, however the car was parked on the wrong side of a residential road which prompted the officer to question me. When I refused to breathalyze, I was arrested and spent the night in jail. In March of 2015, my lawyer met with the prosecutor before trial and they decided to lower charges to disorderly conduct (as a result of refusal) and improper parking, as well as expunging these charges from my record in exchange for a fine. Outside of court mandate, I voluntarily chose to receive counseling from my church pastor and have since stayed away from drinking in excess to remove myself from any possibility of association. Finally, a friend and I took some bikes off a rack one night to ride across campus. Stupid decision, it was 1am after a long library session and they had been laying on the ground by the rack unlocked for weeks, we figured we'd ride them back later. Turns out a campus police officer knew we took them and asked us to bring them back so they didn't have to arrest us. We did and the owners of the bikes pressed charges. We went to court for a theft 3 misdemeanor and the judge said he would drop all charges in exchange for community service. End of story. I know I have to fill out waivers, but I am concerned about whether they will automatically get rejected because two were initially DUI arrests, even though the court either dropped the charges or changed them. Has anyone else been in a similar situation and had your waivers approved?
  2. First and foremost - I know that each situation varies greatly depending on circumstance and that many questions regarding moral waivers have been asked and answered. I've been working on my packet for a bit now and I plan on submitting for the May board. I'm waiting for my recruiter to get back from leave next week to submit a moral waiver for me. I was arrested in 2011 at 19 years old for DUI (I won't list the lengthy details unless its needed). The DUI was dropped to wreckless operation of a motor vehicle and transportation of alcohol by a minor. I paid court fines and my license was suspended for 60 days. I wrote a strong letter that I believe will show that I'm well past this and I feel pretty good about my chances of getting a waiver. My WOSM just told me yesterday that "your chances are slim" for getting selected and that if I don't get selected I could "reenlist and apply again once they see I'm serious". I know some guys have been saying that this is a bad idea, that getting in as a civilian is easier than enlisted, and that I should just keep at it. I plan to resubmit until the end. My WOSM & recruiter have been awesome so far and I feel great about having them on my side. Him saying this yesterday gave me a sick feeling that it might be going sour. Does anyone have experience making it through this type of pushback? If I don't get selected the first time and my WOSM tells me to enlist and stops helping, can I submit my packet on my own or does a recruiter do that for you? I am wondering the best way to go about it without being rude, acting like I know everything, and losing their guidance. My current worry is that if I don't get selected first round my WOSM is going to stop helping me and tell me to enlist. I know this is all pretty premature but I want to be prepared and you guys have been AWESOME in helping me with previous questions. Thank you in advance. My Stats: Civilian; No Flight Hours; No Prior-Service Age: 27 ASVAB: 134 GT // 97 percentile SIFT: 61 APFT: TBD Education: Associates Degree in IT - 3.9 GPA LORs: WOSM has a few interviews with senior warrants lined up for me (another reason I don't want to lose his assistance) Flight physical: March 15th @ Ft. Irwin Moral Waivers: 1 TBD
  3. Does the check the status of your flight physical website ever work? I have tried from 3 different computers multiple times over the past 3 weeks and it never seems to work. Is it just like this for me?
  4. My recruiter is putting together the paperwork to submit up line but we are waiting for an out of state record to come back. I got a DUI in '05 before I joined the Navy, clean record after that. He said a Marine's packet he just submitted for a moral waiver got denied for the DUI, and that is pretty much a wrap for the WOFT process. My question is, if the moral waiver get denied, is there anything at all I can do to resubmit or prior to submission maybe help sway them in my favor(based on other achievements)? Thanks in advance
  5. Age: 26 GT: 126 SIFT: 73 APFT: 276 Military: None Education: Bachelors of Science in Aviation Systems Management Flight Time: 46 hours in Cessna LOR: Air Force pilot, National Guard Heli Pilot, Army Heli Pilot, Past Flight Instructor, College Aviation Professor Physical: stamped, no waiver Waivers: I needed a waiver for having a fine over $250. That was a Class B Misdemeanor, $500 fine, and 2 years unsupervised probation for "Approaching Wildlife". AKA was in Yellowstone and got charged by a bear and myself and two friends were charged for getting chased by a bear. So I applied for WOFT and needed to get a waiver for this incident. I was denied the waiver which has a 1 year wait to reapply for the waiver. I did go straight to the Marine Corps OCS route to fly. They had no problem with the "criminal history" and I didn't need a waiver. THOUGH they wanted to "double check" my vision from my Army Flight Physical so I had my eyes rechecked and BARELY but did fail on refraction. So with that I would have to of course get Lasik and reapply in 6 months. I'm of course on a time constraint since I am 26 with a birthday in April. I'm just asking opinions if maybe it would be best to just go in now as an E-4 with my degree to be a Helo mechanic to reapply from within the Army. What do you think my chances would be to be picked up? P.S: Also I don't know how much of a difference it makes on being accepted but I also have (years ago) 2 minor speeding tickets, 1 no proof of insurance, 1 no registration, 1 no proof of ownership, and 1 dismissed "Deer Violations (dismissed) (was hunting with a guy that didn't have a tag though I did being completely legal but was issued a citation that was dismissed and never went to court.)
  6. (This is mainly for AD members) Has anyone needed an exception to policy for their physical? My physical has been delayed because of an issue, but it can be approved with the exception. This requires letters of recommendation from chain of command from Company, Battalion, Brigade, and first general officer. I can use (and have) the required LoRs from CO/BN commanders [from warrant packet], but I'm at a loss for what the higher two are supposed to look like. If anyone can provide insight, please respond. If you have gone through the process, please PM.
