Meant to attach a message to that. I'm AD so I guess I'll have to impatiently wait until next week.

The Milper Message usually comes out the following Wednesday after the board convenes.

Got news this morning that I was not selected. It was my second look and it was crushing not being picked. I had a LoR from a CW5 and a LTC both former aviators. Not sure where to go now.

Sorry to hear that. Don't give up. If you're able to, submit an improved package again!

It's getting toward the end of the fiscal year man, selection rates drop for the last three scheduled board unless you got picked up 2017/2018 which was the golden years. Try again next fiscal year, the opportunity is too good to just stop, which I'm sure you're not going to.

 

Is anyone familiar with the number of WOFT reviews per fiscal year? From my knowledge, I thought it was two per fiscal year plus a possible third with a waiver.

Is the limit to apply 3 times? Are there waivers to shorten the wait time from 1 year to 6 months? I am definitely pushing the age limit (30). I have been recommended going as a 15T, or 15U to get more experience before trying again.

If you're a college graduate, the Navy as of April 29, 2019, raised the age limit for flight school to 32. I would give that a go before going in enlisted.

 

After reviewing your bio, you need to finish your degree regardless. It more than likely caused your DQ. 30 years old with less than 30 credits to completion. What's with that? Finish it and be done with it. Others have in less time.

Currently I only have an Associates Degree. I have been recommended that I enlist at a 15T in the U.S. Army and try again in a few years. I am 30 years old now so by time I can try for woft again I will have to apply for an age waiver. My goal is to get a bachelors degree during this time so I can strengthen my packet and if I get declined for woft again then I will be setup for a civilian job.
