Got in touch with my recruiter, I was selected!

Still waiting on AD results but congrats civilians! Anyone know the % numbers for civilians? Im trying to convince a friend from home to apply

Same. My guess is January (I've been told it is almost always 4-6 for AD), but with WOCS acceptance rates being what they are, we could be pushed out as much as 9 months.

Age: 25

GT: 115

SIFT: 58

APFT: 250

LOR: O3, O5 (his recommendatiom was very strongly worded), FT. Bliss CWOB CW5

Flight time: zilch

Physical: H2 Hearing exception

Education: 34 Credits toward Associates in General Studies (updating to 40 credits)

Military: 6 years AD SGT, EIB, CIB, Unit Movement Officer qualified, Soldier of the Month, Commandants List BLC, 2x AAM, 2x ARCOM, 2x AGCM and various other cookie cutter awards NO NCOER AS OF YET STILL WITH HQDA AND WILL PROBABLY MOT MAKE IT TO UPDATES

 

I have been informed of Board Ready status. I have been very anxious awaiting this entire thing and have been reaching out to anybody and everybody about it. I fear the lack of NCOERs can hinder me (I am awaiting approval of a very strong NCOER) and my average test scores as well. I am usually a 270+ PT guy but between PCS, baby, and constant work with no PT time in the morning, Ive slipped. Would it be worth submitting an updated DA61 with a new 265 PT score? My CW5 sat on the last board and he told me it wouldnt be much unless I hit a 270+ but I havent had an opportunity to have a PT test so Im stuck at 265

I was promoted to SGT on December16 and selected on July17. Did not have an ncoer and was First time selected (it was like 90% selection rate though).I emailed proponent with the very same question and they said not to worry about the lack of ncoers and submit as is.

Im assuming it is the same date. Cut off dates for civilians were slightly different but I believe the actual board date should be the same.

 

*Edit* I called my recruiter just to recheck and make sure everything was good with my packet for the board, and he said it was good to go and Ill be hearing back the week of the 7/23, so yes its the same!

I emailed HRC to expedite the ncoer and they actually came through for me but the day after the deadline for updates so I sent it in anyway and emailed Special Boards Branch. The CW5 told me it was late but he updated anyway and gave me a little sentence about the importance of being on time but all in all I think Im looking great now! But thanks for the reassurance

I keep reading about the 100% street to seaters but Im nervous because the AD selections are never 100% so even with good credentials I still worry a ton haha

 

Edit: btw didnt mean to make that sound braggy at all

Sounds like youll be submitting for the September board. July board convenes tomorrow, I doubt theyd take a packet thats not complete.

 

Nervous because I was told I could submit materials for the July board, but here's the kicker, it's only a partial packet. Anyone ever go (succeed) this route? Im obviously gathering/ completing the rest of the pack materials in the interim. SIFT next week.
