  1. Non-concur. I was a P on my major PRF, no SOS DG (or any DG), not a school select off my O-4 board and in my third look for school I got selected for CGSC and heading to my 1BPZ O-5 board with a DP. The first change CSAF made for IDE selection directly helped me by elimating school selects off the O-4 board and broadening the candidate pool (not sure about this recent DA change though). Of course, there are still made guys who are on the way to multiple BPZ promotions, command and in-res school programs...but I'd like to think this track starts around year 12 or 13 now instead of year 7 or 8. I'd also like to think its highly possible, if not highly probable, that a lot of those made guys are actually really solid....of course a few douche canoes get through....would be the case in any system in any org.
  2. Also, if you're en route to school your OPB will list "IDE....SELECT". In such cases the board won't even have to scroll -- they'll know you're headed to IDE in residence. Ipso facto...one more data point to prove that in-res vs distance is easily identifable to the board.
  3. As someone who got picked up last year, third look non-select, I can only hope SRs use their DA on their best non-select. This would be a sure-fire way to ensure SRs got their top 2 folks into school. If you're stratted number 3 or worse, odds will be extremely low...maybe you could pick up alternate and be a late bump to Maxwell.
  4. Shack. I don't know what effect CSAF was trying to create with this, but what's going to happen is that the DAs and the third look dudes will get a large majority of the slots. Will be tough to snag a slot if you're a layer below shiny penny. They should've left it alone.
  5. Confirmed 2-line PRFs fall and later. I say Bravo.
  6. Wonder what she did. Pretty brutal story overall -- seemed like she had her s*** together.
  7. Brutal confluence of events but I could totally see it -- you need some senior rater luck in this game. I'm off to school this summer with a DP 1-below and I'm fully anticipating a P out of the school MLR next year IPZ but whatevs. I'm just hoping by virtue of being in school during IPZ that I'll have a good chance. But hearing this story stings!
  8. BPZ DP And IPZ P? Now you have me nervous.
  9. Nav aka no transferrable job skills what so ever.
  10. Everyone's gotta make a call on what's best for them and their families -- I certainly don't begrudge anyone deciding to get out or deciding to stay in....but trading information that can strengthen your record, PRF, and chances for promotion on future boards is worthwhile to me and I appreciate the discussion. To those bouncing to greener pastures, fly safe and hook me up with a buddy pass....Cheers!
  11. You’ll get promoted with those numbers and that push. Remember, they have to promote some P records....if you have a strong P Record with the super P, your odds aren’t just good, they’re great. Another thing to consider is that there are a number of O-5 IPZ PRFs that are complete shit. You’ll be fine bro, don’t sweat the P. Once you get promoted, it’s all the same.
  12. Was sort of hedging my bets approaching my last look for IDE in-res in case I was not selected as the window between non-select notification and IPZ board is somewhat tight. But your point is well-received -- I hope Fingers' intent will come to fruition regarding the IDE selection process because it directly impacted me favorably as a non-shiny penny, slightly above average O-3 turned pretty good O-4 who kept working hard rather than the legacy system where your career track was pre-ordained simply based on whether you were a school select on your O-4 board or not.
  13. I feel fortunate my senior rater (Air Force 2-Star) did not use correspondence as a discriminator for in-res nominations. I had almost none of it done when I got selected for in-res. At least some folks are following the guidance, which actually makes sense. Using correspondence as a discriminator means they actually want you to do IDE twice....which is as dumb as it sounds.
