Hey VR community, First off this site has been invaluable and I appreciate everyone who takes the time to post here. I take the SIFT Thursday and thought other applicants might appreciate hearing my take on it. I have not found many posts about it recently so figured I'd post about it and knock out an intro simultaneously. __________________________________________ Age : 25 Degree : B.S. Family & Child Science with Pre Med track (3.0 gpa) College credits - 209 (Dual major with minor) GT - 131 APFT - TBD 6/25, mock tested at 293 SIFT score - TBD Flight physical - date TBD Waivers :TBD no known medical/eyesight issues Letters of recommendation thus far : -Sgt Major JSOC -County Commissioner _______________________________________________ To the vet VR members, any and all criticism/input is highly valued. I'm aiming for the August 2nd board and doing my best to hunt more letters of recommendation. I'm really hoping for a SIFT score in or above the 60s, doing my part to try and make that happen. I know selection rates are high but I'm trying to give 110% and submit the strongest possible packet. Ill post my detailed experience with the SIFT section by section on Thursday for those who come behind me. Lord have mercy on my hidden figures. Best of luck the everyone!
So this is my second recruiter I've went through trying to get my WOFT application process going (first one claimed I wasn't eligible due to not have prior flight experience and/or military service) and refused to believe that civilians could apply. I spoke with the new recruiter on the phone for the first time today (came recommended) and he basically said that I need to commit to him that I will go enlisted if I don't get accepted to the WOFT program. Then he gave me some long spiel about how the army is all about commitment and that I will have a better chance coming from the inside. Am I wrong for thinking he is out of line by forcing me to go enlisted if I get rejected by the board? Also correct me if I am wrong but didn't more civilians get selected by the board in 2016 then people from inside of the army for the WOFT program? It just doesn't seem like the logical thing to do to go enlisted if my goal is to become a warrant officer. I just graduated from college this past December and I really want to find a recruiter that will help me put my packet together and allow me to put my best foot forward. I am located in the Washington D.C. area. Thanks.
