  1. Never hurts to ask. I'm fighters Guard but I wasn't allowed to go until I had a 90+ PCSM score. I retook it and they let me go. Being heavies though I could see it going both ways.
  2. Congrats!! Where at if you don't mind me asking?
  3. I got TLN last week for OCT 15 TFOT and been told I'm going to ENJJPT but no dates for that. Fighter Guard unit, also don't have to attend IFT.
  4. Thank ya! My recruiter sent it in about 3 weeks after I got picked up. She was my recruiter when I enlisted so she was on top of the ball for everything and super helpful. Not sure why or how everything moved so fast but I do know the high ups at my unit were wondering why it took so long for this process, maybe they made some phone calls, who knows. The last 3 pilots who got picked up at my unit took a year to leave, but they didn't get their paperwork in till a few months after they were picked.
  5. Now if that doesn't describe big blue, I don't know what does. I talked to training today and they're getting my forms to get TFOT dates going though. Hopefully you don't need the FC1 approved to get those dates. Also, at least you got released on Wednesday..I had to wait around with those dang active guys
  6. It was, actually was just told my package was approved by NGB yesterday and my recruiter was asking for my FC1. That might start moving something, hopefully. Maybe waivers have something to do with it too.
  7. My package was sent in, in April and medical in May and haven't heard a word of anything. Haven't even heard if my package was approved.
  8. The graduation date was always a big issue at my unit. You had to be within a semester to graduating to apply. Mostly because, like you said it takes a year to get hired. They can't start the process at the NGB till you have your bachelors or are within one semester I believe (could be different for reserves). So, you applying with a graduation date a year out, that whole process is going to take way too long for their liking. That would be my guess. Otherwise maybe your age? 27 now, 28 when graduating, 29-30 when possibly starting UPT.
  9. If you're interested in both, rush Guard and Reserve units and if you're not being picked by those go AD. Don't half ass two things, whole ass one thing.
  10. The technicians at Wright Patt told me it takes 6-8 weeks for it just to get to AETC and that they're backed up right now. That probably doesn't include the 900 other people it has to go through.
  11. Awesome. Any idea on pilot training start dates?
  12. Guard fighters are insanely competitive, but a big factor is they have to like you. You can be a freaking rockstar on paper, get all the interviews in the world and never get selected for a slot. If you're willing to go for active duty, do it. There's a high amount of slots being given out from what I've read. Get to UPT, bust your ass and you have a good chance at your fighter.
  13. Just finished FC1 with a pass, didn't go as smoothly as I wanted but everything on this forum helped tremendously. Had to take about 4 extra color blind tests and 5 extra vision tests, but all went well in the end. The technicians and doctors were incredible. Can't stress enough that if you go in there with a good attitude, they will do literally everything to help you and get you a pass. The explanation on page 5 by JustHangingOut hits everything on the head.
