    Commanders are dropping like flies this year

    Wonder what she did. Pretty brutal story overall -- seemed like she had her s*** together.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Senior raters are instructed to not consider whether someone has completed IDE in corespondence when making nominations for IDE in Res central board and when determining DP allocation for BPZ. However, I think it’s a pretty safe assumption some, not all, senior raters and/or MLR members ignore this guidance. One thing is for certain: Completing an in-res IDE program or being en route to an in-res IDE program is a trump card for BPZ consideration and, at a minimum, makes you a lock IPZ.

    1/3 BPZs with a pretty strong push line. I thought I was borderline to pull a DP at the MLR and but at a minimum this helps for IPZ next year. Good luck to IPZ folks getting their PRFs back the next couple weeks with the good boxed checked.

    I got a DP 1BPZ....would rather be lucky than good, I guess. What are my odds now...about 1 in 3?

    Story of my life! All good either way -- but this is good context.

    Lotta MLRs taking place in next week or 2....do we have any MLR recorders among us willing to share insight? I'm 1BTZ This year with an outside chance to get a DP....so I would be interested.
