  1. Yeah, that's my point. For folks who are leaving this summer, it makes sense for the losing unit to do them. But for folks like me, who will have been gone for well over a year by the time the next PRFs are done, it makes no sense at all. But how will AFIT strat folks?! Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  2. GPC limit is $25k, but I believe they have to get an authorization from finance or contracting to go above $5k, which is the limit before you have to go through contracting and do the three competing vendors shuffle. This is subject to change based on my memory. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  3. For those who have seen the guidance on rewriting NO PRFs for folks already in school, what's the gouge? I haven't heard anything from AFIT (although I'm sure they're not concerned until its time for the next board). Who writes these new PRFs, and who gives the strats?

  4. At least you're still there. What about those of us in an AAD program for 3 years where we have a NO already? Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  5. The discussion was more about that school getting in-residence credit, and therefore make them more competitive. Unfortunately your point still stands for that as well, because even if you have "credit", it's still obvious from your records whether you attended an actual IDE program or not. So the in-res credit is basically worthless. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  6. Pretty sure that's what it's been for the last several years. Remember, that doesn't mean they'll promote 85% of IPZ. It means the total number of people they'll promote is 85% of the number of IPZ, but the BPZ and APZ folks eat into that. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  7. Yup, the Aspire is awesome. I got it right around the time I posted about the CSR issues (which I still havent cancelled yet because I need to use my $300 travel credits first). Diamond status was given within 24 hours. Another good one is the Amex Gold. They just buffed the benefits and it's a worthwhile card now. 4x points on grocery stores and dining. $10 a month credit at GrubHub and a few restaurants. $100 per year airline credit (works the same as the platinum and aspire).

  8. I'm not sure if I ever saw it in writing. I'll take a look when I get a chance to see if I had any emails about it. I just know I heard it from reliable enough sources to take it as gospel...and I'm the first person to be skeptical until I see the black and white! Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  9. It was changed from 45 to 60 or 90. Can't remember which because there was so much confusion over it. But its definitely not 45 anymore. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  10. I almost found out. I took the bonus to put me at 24, because I already have a PhD commitment until then. But when I got passed over and they initially only offered 20, AFIT threatened to kick me out of the program because I'd only have one year to pay back. I could have tried to fight them on it, with the fact that big AF made the decision. But I signed all the paperwork knowing what would probably happen on each end so it was hard for me to fight that in good faith. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  11. Confirming the confirmation on this. Once I got the corrected offer for 24, it also had the option to only accept 20. Whichever one you select, they give you an automatic DOS in the system. So no ADSC's can push you back. However, any ADSC inside of that is fair game, so if you PCS or do some type of training it could impact the ability to punch between 20 and 24.

  12. Does anyone have any insight into the AF Student MLR process, and what NO push lines look like? Are NO PRFs allowed to have strats from the previous SR on the push line? Just wondering how level the playing field is at the student MLR, and if that’s unsuccessful in pulling a DP, how the NO PRF’s stack up at the actual board. Also, anyone ever write a letter to the student MLR? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I’m confused as to why they made a call and said hook him up, if they didn’t think he was worth being a Flt/CC in the first place? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. For those who would like to contribute, here’s the GoFundMe page for Hook’s family. https://www.gofundme.com/chris-quothookquot-dupin039s-memorial-fund There will be a memorial service on Saturday morning, 1000, at Eglin’s King Hangar, followed by a reception at 3rd Planet Brewery in Niceville.
