    Depth Perception DQ and Waiver info

    Before jumping into an eval with the doc, I suggest you "get smart" on everything they will be looking for knowing you have a history of the condition. E.g., phorias, stereopsis, microsuppression, double vision, etc. It would be wise of you to know the medical jargon associated with things directly or indirectly affected by your condition so you can ask the right questions. Those things can be found throughout that waiver guide I mentioned above.

    Depth Perception DQ and Waiver info

    lph1235, First of all, good on you for being as proactive as you are at such a young age. That will pay major dividends in your future. I believe having the surgery on your record does require a waiver, but is given so long as you meet certain eye alignment criteria. You can read up on these things in the Air Force Waiver Guide 2017. My advice to you is to get an updated evaluation done by an ophthalmologist who specializes in this surgery (mostly pediatric doctors) and make them give you every test they can, see what they say and compare that to the standards. I had posted this a while back in another thread, but it's fairly relevant to what you are looking for here. Lastly, keep a positive attitude! I know it may feel like a shitty hand dealt to you that was out of your control, but you can take some of that control back by being proactive (as you already are) in learning what needs to be done to obtain the best job in the world. Good luck!!
  3. FYSA, I do know they (OTS) let a bro fly out on a Friday night to interview, and then return on Sunday. He was in maybe week 5 or 6? Unsure if that will matter.

    FC1 - Dental worries (Bite Issue)

    What does your dentist say about this? Can/will it lead to potential health issues? Has surgery ever been advised?

    Ordering Patches (name, morale, fun meter)

    Placed an order with Mardon 3 weeks ago. Was told 3-5 weeks for production plus 7-10 business days for shipping.

    State HQ and NGB Approval Process

    Check the Guard/Reserve Timeline to UPT thread. It's typically 4-6 weeks after FC1/MFS you'll receive paperwork stamped approved. Then, expect another 4-8 weeks for NGB packages to make its way through the loop. For me, OTS dates were scheduled about 4 months out after hearing back from NGB. So yes, it is all a waiting game. YMMV.

    Warning: Redband trailer - lots of grown up words. Really looking forward to this movie mainly because I'm pretty sure Frances McDormand's character is based off my mother's behavior.

    Retake the AFOQT? Help!!

    Take out a loan, get your PPL, and if your PCSM is still low, retake your AFOQT? (You didn't post your scores, so I'm just assuming it's below average?) If a few thousand dollars and some longer hours spent studying are the only thing standing in my way of achieving this goal, it's a no-brainer....

    Just took the AFOQT.. retake? Help!

    Study more and retake the AFOQT. I mean, why not? I would say your age doesn't give you the luxury of time to go through all the not-so-timely hoops involved in the application/interview/notification processes. If you want this, do anything and everything you can to give yourself the best chance.

    Spine/spinal issues and waivers

    Go see a doctor. Unless the doctor finds something pretty extreme/degenerative, then you will be fine.
  13. Wow. That was quick...
