  1. I'm too scared to look tomorrow haha.
  2. I'm assuming not hearing from my cc means I didn't get picked up >,<
  3. Moving at the speed of excellence

    Total Federal Commissioned Service Date?

    AFPC has already started offering RPA slots to guys who didn't make it to the pilot board even if they didn't check the box for it. A guy in my squadron called to ask about the pilot board and he was told they're going to offer RPA slots to pretty much anyone who meets the UFT boards and doesn't get picked up.
  5. Hopefully next week then :/
  6. When I called AFPC they said the base personnel offices would be notified a couple days prior so that the sq/cc's could notify selectees the day prior to the official release. I don't think they even know what's going on.
  7. This is week 3, so I'm guessing 3 more weeks if the results aren't out tomorrow morning.
  8. I don't think it's any more competitive than usual. I think this is the first year they've used the 215 where enjjpt is the same box as upt, so they're probably just wanting to make sure enjjpt selectees actually want it since some people may get picked up and want normal upt.
  9. ROTC, OTS, active duty, and the academy applicants all meet separate boards.
  10. I haven't heard of the results release yet.
  11. I'll say 3/20 to hopefully be pleasantly surprised it's earlier.
  12. That's my understanding as well. Since that came out after the board, I would assume they're wanting to make sure the top packages want to do enjjpt since people don't have the option to not choose it.
  13. I haven't even heard of that email. Is it just asking if you want to compete for enjjpt? Edit: Do we even have the option to volunteer for enjjpt since the current 215 combined upt and enjjpt?
  14. There was a guy I was in ROTC with that got enjjpt with ~2.9 and a 70ish PCSM. That was back when commanders had 50% of the score's weight though. I had a buddy get picked up last year for it and he had a low 3.something GPA and mid-90s PCSM. I don't know what the exact cutoff is or if there even is one. I've always heard they fill up the total number of pilot slots available, then give the top packages enjjpt slots until they run out. I have no idea how true that is, but it sounds legit.
  15. Oh wow. I hope it's not that long. I'll be deployed before I find out if that's the case O.o
  16. Is that 3-4 weeks from the board or from now? I'm assuming from the board. The guy I talked to said 2 weeks, but I've never seen results released that quickly.
  17. So maybe we can expect around 45-50 total slots being available?

    IFS (now "IFT") for CSO's

    I went through in January 2010. The CSO syllabus was a breeze. I had finished my PPL about 6 months prior to starting and they let me take all the flying while I did the navigation piece. It's nothing to worry about. Just check out the doss website, study what you can, and then study your butt off while you're there. It's not hard at all. They just want to make sure you're willing to work hard and can grasp the basics.
  19. Awesome thanks. The guy I talked to when I called Randolph said the results would be released this week. That was the week before the board met. I'm really hoping to hear something good tomorrow, but it could be a couple more weeks if the release moves at the speed of excellence.. Another guy from my squadron applied and called the same office at Randolph. The guy he talked to said they were extremely short on RPA slots and they were going to offer them to a lot of people that don't get picked up for pilot slots even if they don't check the RPA box.
  20. I'm just going to keep checking mypers every day to see my name not on there then haha. I just found last year's stuff on mypers. The 2014 UFT board met 14-17 Jan 2014. The results were released 13 Feb 2014. The 2015 UFT board met 17-20 Feb 2015. I guess we can expect the results around the 12th or 19th. I heard they are always officially released on Thursdays. The board contact I spoke to said to expect two weeks, but history seems to show it about a month.
  21. Awesome thanks. I'm kind of expecting just to wait for the list to pop up on mypers somewhere and then we'll know. I called the board a couple weeks ago to make sure my package made it to them and the captain I talked to said the results should be released within two weeks. Hopefully that's true.
  22. Any rumors on what the board is looking for this time around? I've heard some years the rankings are the big thing and other years it's the PCSM/AFOQT scores.

    Appealing a promotion board

    So the new USAF captain board just posted their results and many of us believe there were some mistakes made. There are people who were wash backs in flight school who got promoted and others who graduated in the top half of their flight school class and top of their FTU class who were nonselected. There is a certain airframe in which everyone at that schoolhouse when the packages were sent in was nonselected. My understanding is that a promotion board cannot discriminate based on the job. A promotion board has to select based on job performance while a retention board can discriminate based on the job. Maybe there was a paperwork issue out of that FTU? Has anyone had experience on how to appeal a promotion board and what steps to take?
