The scores that you do have look pretty good. You have probably already done so, but make 100% sure there is no requirement for an APFT/ACFT score (I’m not sure where they are with phasing the ACFT in). You can see on the previous forums the S2Srs have all of their fitness scores listed, and I’ve been told that is a major part of the packet being boarded. The only thing I can see possibly holding you back is your age. Don’t let it discourage you from applying again if you don’t get selected your first or second board. You can knock out some college courses and finish your pilot license to bolster your resume if that ends up being the case.

I’m curious to see if you make it. 

Good luck!

Thank you for the feedback sir, I definitely will double check with my recruiter about the ACFT. For the time being I am going to keep a positive attitude for the current board, but if it doesn’t work out, I’ll finish up my PPL and get some college under my belt and try again. Thank you sir once again.

Hope to see successful selections from you all including myself. Good Luck! This is my second look.

What did you change from your first board? It's my second look as well. I went from only letters from significant civilians to 4 letters from higher ranking officers plus one really good civilian letter. My scores are competitive so I'm hopeful, but the wait has been brutal!

Good luck to everyone!

Hey, I also worked on improving my LOR's. I was able to receive two from MG's a W5 and 2 from my employment. Not much else I could improve because my scores are permanent and the most you can score on the OPAT is heavy. Good Luck, maybe we will see each other in the near future.

Does anyone have an estimate on when the results for AD will come out? I know it’ll likely be next week but what day? 

My recruiter told me best case we would have my results as early as Thursday. I think that’s being a little optimistic as the board is from Jan 25-28, but I’m on the edge of my seat. I assume by the end of next week for sure.

I am thinking the following week because online it says the board goes until the 29th. Best of Luck. I am so nervous I wish we could see the results already.

The street to seaters typically get their results the same week or very early the next week. AD get their results usually Wed-Fri the week after, in a perfect world. If there are any holidays or any Army DONSA’s in between expect results to be delayed.

I see that you were selected on the September board, would you mind if I sent my summary over to you for a little feedback?

I don’t think I’ve ever been so anxious yet excited in my life.
