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, any performance based awards)? I graduated/dropped out/tested out of high school by getting my GED as a sophomore, and had crappy grades after I moved to a new high school (went to that high school for 3 semesters). However, I immediately started on my associates degree and have been doing pretty well (high B average). I'm majoring in criminal justice if that matters at all. The reason I'm getting into Army Aviation is because I got to fly in a UH-60 as a 13-year old cadet, and sat in the left gunner seat. Everything just clicked for me at that moment and I knew I wanted to fly them. I have a ton of FEMA training, and I'm planning to get my EMT-B before I sign my contract as well. Is there anything else anyone would recommend? Any glaring issues to resolve?
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.
