Hey all,

 

I've been using this forum to build my WOFT packet for a bit now. Thank you all so much for everything you have shared about the process on these forums. It has really made the path to packet completion far less turbulent (excuse the pun) for me.

 

Anyway, I just completed my battalion board interview the other day. I did not want to post my stats on this thread until I knew that my packet was complete. But as it is now, here they are:

 

Age: 22
ASVAB: 80 AFQT, 120 GT
SIFT: 60
APFT: 281

Battalion Board: 70

College: BA from California Maritime Academy, 3.26 GPA

Flight Time: nil
LoRs: Retired Navy Rear Admiral (former aviator and president of university), Navy LT (EA-6B aviator), Department chairman at university, Professor, Internship boss
Other: Cum laude, President's list, Student government

Thanks again all, and good luck to everyone on both the September and all other upcoming boards!

This is torture. I hope there's a similar message when I finally get to a board. But great news for September! I'm pulling for everyone on here to get selected first look.
