  1. Hello everyone, I am a pretty new member and I am still learning to navigate the forums. I apologize if a similar post has been made elsewhere. I am currently a senior in high school going through the WOFT packet process. So far: Police records- clean recordHealth- Everything is good other than glasses, correctable past 20/20Asvab - 97GT - 133GPA - Weight: 4.0, Unweighted: around 3.5Education: High school diploma (graduating tomorrow)Flight experience- noneCollege credits- noneEssay - Second draft completedLORs - None so far, but I got in contact with one of my senators. I have heard mixed answers about this. Some warrants including a few high school to flight schoolers told me that it is very possible for me to get selected. Some tell me that I should drop a packet but be ready to get denied because of my age and lack of experience. My first recruiter told me straight up I won't get in and he wanted me to enlist. My second recruiter is helping me through the entire process. I would like to know how you guys feel about my stats, and if there is anything I could improve on. Some questions I have are: If I am selected, what is the time between selection and shipping out to basic? Any tips on studying for the SIFT? How should I approach service members for letters of recommendation, given the fact that I know very few. Any additional advice will be greatly appreciated.
  2. NOTE: Some of you may have seen this on the general forums, I apologize for the inconvenience. I was told that this was a better place to post this topic so I decided to give it a shot! Thank you for your understanding. Hello everyone, I am a pretty new member and I am still learning to navigate the forums. I apologize if a similar post has been made elsewhere. I am currently a senior in high school going through the WOFT packet process. So far: Police records- clean record Health- Everything is good other than glasses, correctable past 20/20 Asvab - 97 GT - 133 GPA - Weight: 4.0, Unweighted: around 3.5 Education: High school diploma (graduating tomorrow) Flight experience- none College credits- none Essay - Second draft completed LORs - None so far, but I got in contact with one of my senators.

How should I approach service members for letters of recommendation, given the fact that I know very few. Any additional advice will be greatly appreciated. EDIT: I understand that being a high schooler, my resume will be VERY weak. In fact, a recent warrant officer who did high school to flight school advised me to just leave the resume blank. Given the points above, I would like to make it clear that I am set on completing this packet. I wish to enter this program before enlisting or going to college, and my chances are 0 if I don't even give it a shot. That being said, I sincerely appreciate all the advice and help I have been given thus far, and look forward to working with some of the most talented men and women in this country.
  3. Hello everyone. I’m currently finishing my first year at Virginia Military Institute. I’ve always wanted to become a warrant officer pilot. Although I enjoy VMI and participating in Army ROTC. I have no plans to commission and would like to apply for WOFT after this year. My question is, do I have a good chance of getting in without a degree? If so, when should I apply? I finish school this May. Thank You! -Age: 19 -GT: NONE -SIFT: NONE -APFT: 290 -MIL: NONE -Civ Ed: (High School) Fishburne Military School (College) 35 credits from Virginia Military Institute GPA (2.6). -Physical: should be good… -LOR: Army Special Operations (Lieutenant Genearal-Ret), 160th Flight Surgeon (LT Colonel- Ret) That’s what I have for now.
  4. Hi everyone, I am a high school senior who is very interested in the Army's high school to flight school scholarship/program. A little about me, I an attending an instate university in the fall and participating in NROTC. The marine corps is my first choice of branch but I am looking for every opportunity where I can serve and lead the troops that keep our country safe, hopefully while flying rotary wing aircraft. I was not interested in the Army at first, but I have worked with a WO5 who will write me a LOR and who advised me to apply for the board. Let me be clear that I am NOT applying for this as a 'back up plan' if my other plans 'don't work out'- it is something that I am genuinely interested in and committing myself to whole-heartedly. I have been in touch with a recruiter but we have not met in person yet, I am meeting with him next week My high school GPA is 3.8, I took the pre-asvab and got a 91... I have not taken the APFT What I'm really looking for is some advice on my application, anything I should do or know or prepare for before I meet with the recruiter... I have been working on physical fitness and studying for the asvab, but I don't know a lot about this program. Thank you in advance if you read all of this. edited punctuation
