I will be selected TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!! :icon_rage
just trying to send some positive vibs!
Anyone got an idea of how many pilot slots they are going to fill this month?
I talked to NRD Houston, and they said September is the worse month to apply. Looking at the year, he said there weren't many, if any, pilot slots available.
He also said something to this effect: "I'm not saying it doesn't look good for you getting in, but it just doesn't look good for anyone."
Watch us all get in. But who relaly knows?
No money at the end of FY
September is always a bad month for the Military. Reason being, THERE IS NO MONEY LEFT! ! ! ! I teach down here at Corry Station and CANTRAC always shows less students at the end of the FY. January however, is always the best month for students.
Just throwing that out there....
So if it turns out I gotta reapply... I gotta reapply. No sweat, right? I have a stable job in the meantime, I'm living with family and building some cushion.
That said, I would prefer to get moving on this sooner rather than later...
Well that is some of the worst news I have heard concerning this board. Thanks!
But anyone being selected now would be on the next fiscal year, right?
I'm pretty sure that there are some slots remaining for the current fiscal year, ending Sept. 30. Thats just my guess based on what i've heard and seen around the recruiting station.
I am ordering everyone on this thread to do one of several things.
1) Buy a new gun. It will take your mind off of the boards and you can go shooting to take your mind off the boards.
2) Go fishing. You don't need a reason to go fishing, just go.
3) Anything to take your mind off of this stuff.
You will find out soon and you are going to bust a vein worrying about it. Back in my day we didn't have AW to goup stress on, we just waited for a call from the recruiter; Tommy Hilfiger shirts were cool back then, by the way.
Seriously, relax and do something, Grasshoppers.
Desk job, man. I would love to go fishing though, coming down the the last few nice days.
besides, stressing about THIS takes my mind off of the drudgery of work :icon_tong
wow, guess we're still on the waiting game. I didnt think it would take 10 days to squeez the results out! Does that usually mean the board convened past Mon Sept 11?
I thought that in terms of OCS and slots, the FY06 was already over. I was told by a bunch of guys at my NRD that sometime in July was the last FY06 board. I would think if that's true, then the money issue shouldn't apply. I was final selected about a month ago (or was it longer), and I go to OCS this Sunday. However, my class is 05-07 (5th class of FY07), because it actually graduates in FY07 (December). Can you back this up RockyMtnNFO?
I bet the guys on this aviation board (presumably all pilots & NFO's) are just out getting their flight time up before the end of the year! j/k
One more word of advice: PATIENCE!
PRO REC SNA!
Board results are out!
Way to cause a stampede. Good luck to all!
May God help us all.
HAHAHAH! I had to do it.
And Brett, you silly goose. If we ever meet one day I hope you don't hate my guts as much as you do on here. This will be my last post as Billthrill1 (unless something else absolutely requires BillThrill1 to come back). Maybe down the line on AirWarriors you can spot me under my new name as the kid that always bugged you. See ya man.
As your future CO, I will afford you the same amount of rope with which to hang yourself as I will the rest of the JOs, but I'll save a transcript of all your nonsensical AW babbling for your final LT FITREP debrief . Caveat Emptor.
Crap! I didn't get in, I didn't even get tabled! I have to fill out a Request for Reconsideration for another pilot board (October, November, or any). I guess they only filled 4 slots this month, and there were 35 applicants. Anyone have any insight for me? I am kind of lost as to what I should do. I could wait and try to beef up my app, with some more flight time, or some more LORs, maybe score higher on the ASTB?
More flight time isn't going to help you - save your cash.
Hey everyone, I'm new to the site but wanted to say Hi. I got pro-rec'd for SNA back in august, until now i've just kinda hovered and gotten some info. But just wanted to introduce myself, currently waiting on a response for final selection, see you around!
Congratulations on your selection and welcome aboard AW, at least as a poster.
thats it, no one else?
