Let's hope so :lol:

 

Hey schep what branch are you coming from? What's your specialty? Have you started your packet yet?

 

Definitely use this as a resource when putting your packet together. My PM box is always open to questions although I'm by no means an expert on the application process. I encourage you to ask your questions in the thread though so that they can be useful to others.

Maybe he meant, Active Duty E-4 and 20 years old??

Of course he did. It's not possible to be a 20 year E4. They'd give you the boot way before that.

I'm back, guys. I was never really gone, though. Anyway, reassembling my packet and aiming for it to be done in 6ish months. This feels good. :)

Well, handwriting analysis, and a cursory glance at your classical education level.

With time getting closer (yet still a ways out) I'm getting excited again to ship out and get started. What was your favorite thing about BCT and WOCS? Overall experience, something in particular?

Favorite part of both was graduation. Same with SERE.

 

Just hunker down and enjoy.

 

When do you ship to Benning?

Early May. Started P90X last week and am hurting. I hope after all this my score shoots up, was a 256 on my last APFT. Anything to get in better shape for it all though will be worth it. Will make another trip out to WA and Lewis early April, say hi to one of the 4/6 guys I know and bring some more tasty goodies for the office like last time.

There were a lot of things I liked about both schools. Just open your mind and enjoy the experience.

Just heard from a Jan grad of WOCS that lots of changes are on the way to make it harder. He didn't really specify, but oh well. Not going to stop me, just one more hurdle to overcome before flight school.

They are going to make WOCS harder? I wonder how. I did not find it to be difficult past the third day.

Academic test format is no longer multiple choice - fill in the blank only. FLX land nav time limit is 2:30 instead of 3:00. FLX ruck march is 1:30 instead of 2:00. TACs get to wear the old-school "Black Hat" and throw out more motivational PT.

 

Nothing too dreadful. Course should still be too easy for anyone who has the aptitude to be a combat pilot in the first place.

Really? Wow. Land nav and ruck didnt matter if you made it on time or not when I went through.

 

Fill in the blank tests really do change things.

Five academic tests, two PT tests (initial and final) and the FLX exercises if you're street to seat. Land nav distance varies based on which lane you're given (random assignment) but averages 3.5 kilometers between four points in the forest. The ruck is six miles.

 

If you step it out on the ruck, you'll do fine. I did an Airborne shuffle run and came in around 58:50, so dialing it back to a powerwalk should still hit the 1:20 mark. Our fastest candidate hit it in around 50 minutes and the slowest was crawling along with little baby steps and managed 1:56. Our class was the last to go through WOCS under the old standard.

 

Everyone in the class who truly wanted to be there would have passed under the new rules. It's not going to harm hard workers, just weed out the lazy dirtbags and those who simply cannot meet the physical standard required of Soldiers.

Its hard to believe that I went to WOCS damn near two years ago, and I am still at Rucker. Booooo

It's hard to believe that you went to WOCS damn near two years ago, and I am still NOT at Rucker. Boooooooo

 

Working on it though...and I remember the day you posted here that you got selected!

So total time from start to finish is what now? On average say 14 months instead of 20 months?

 

Its supposed to be. I graduated WOCS on 5 OCT 2010. My report date to my next unit is 7 SEP 2012. I fly 58s, which is a longer course, and I am also going to ALSE in July (5 weeks).
