FYI,

 

"***JANUARY WARRANT OFFICER SELECTION BOARD (WOSB) DELAYED TO 5-9 FEBRUARY 2018***

Packets reaching a "board ready" status between now and 5 FEB 18 will be held until the MARCH WOSB. The New Packet submission deadline for the March WOSB remains 26 JAN 18.

I had my BN board on 9 DEC. Not exactly sure when if it reached board ready status that day or after. I know the January board cutoff was 5 DEC. Does anybody have some insight as to whether my packet will be pushed on the January board or likely end up in March?

 

I have seen some posts from earlier this year mentioning that packets were submitted to the soonest board, even after submission past cutoff dates.

Maybe they'll expedite publishing the message because of the delay in the board.   Wishful thinking.

I'm new to the forum and hoping to submit my first application by this November to be viewed in the January selection board. I've seen these topics for previous boards and figured that those of us in

I am also a first time select! Congratulations to all that made it!!!

It depends. Are you AD (in any branch) going 153A or a civilian going WOFT? The cut off dates tend to only apply to AD packets. Civlian packets can be submitted up to a week prior to the actual board in most scenarios.

 

Your packet should have been submitted within 5 business days of the BN board. If you passed the BN board that is..

Hello,

 

I'll post my stats when I wake up in the morning. I'm a civilian applicant from Texas and I came across this thread when checking on the USAREC board for January...bummer.

 

I had my BN board on December 20. I was looking forward to some news this week but looks like I'll have to wait a little longer.

Does anyone know when civilians usually get Board results? I have seen that it is different for AD vs civilian.

PM me your name and Ill let you know when the results come out. Im in USAREC now and we get notified when the civilian results are released.

I was selected at the battalion board 13 Dec and my packet sent to Rucker. Does this delay message apply to myself and others that have packets at Rucker already?

Yeah this delay will affect you as well. Typically the civilians are looked at the first couple days a board convenes (from what I read). As I told scanmom, if you PM me your name and email, Ill let you know the results as soon as they notify us (USAREC).

I've tried calling Mr.Garcia at Ft.Rucker to check on my medical. The # 334-598-8955 is not working. Does anyone have his full name and contact info.

I’ll PM you his .mil tomorrow morning.

Turns out no news *isnt* good news. My recruiter said that my packet should be good to go after my Battalion Board back in Dec 13 2017. Medical was completed in November. Luckily I am grateful that a member here messaged me that I was showing up as NOT board ready. Apparently my medical hasnt been reviewed at rucker and my age waiver is still pending. I have literally been waiting around thinking everything was g2g after my recruiter said only thing left to do was wait for Jan 22nd. Turns out that was the worst advice. Does anyone have a # to get this age waiver and medical expedited ASAP? The recruiter has contacted Ops, but Im trying alternate channels as well.

 

Please advise.

No problem, its unfortunate but I am glad you were able to get them working on this now. Better then finding out when the results were released. Good news is with the delay, the March board in only right around the corner.

First time post here, I've submitted my package and it should be up for review on the Jan (now Feb) board. I mostly just hang out in the shadows and try to soak up as much info as I can and this forum has been a huge reason I was able to successfully build my package so thank you to all who contribute. Anthony2447 you seem to have a pretty solid grasp on some of the board info with regards to the civilian applicants but is there any info on sister service numbers? Applicants, quotas, etc.?

Joe,

I do not have any information in regards to Active Duty guys applying, I am in the same boat and getting looked at as well so I wish I did. Looking at historical data, over the last four boards 387 applied and 284 were accepted (73%). The numbers are a little skewed though since NS get looked at twice so if you consider that it was not actually 387 separate applicants the acceptance percentage is actually higher. Keep in mind of those 387 packets that were actually boarded, there were probably a 1000 plus who started the process but did not make it a long the way for one reason or the other. The WOFT (153A) program is definitely not as "easy" as these numbers may portray.

Thanks for that info. I in no way think that this program is easy to be accepted to but I do hear that now is the time to apply. I'm currently instructing at Advanced Machine Gun Course and we have a class on deck right now so I've been able to keep my mind off the board during the week but I spend most of my off time stressing about it. Looking at the stats of fellow posters makes me worry a bit because it seems like everyone has college going for them. I know that's not a make or break but it does show the board that they will be successful in a flight school environment. Just a rant from an anxious applicant.
