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.
