  1. Lol what? They notified interview results select and non-selects last week. Maybe check your voicemail for a call from the POC?
  2. And chair fly the s*** out of every lesson before and after so you don't have to revisit topics and waste time in the air plane.
  3. Hey man, pretty sacrificial of you to give up your dreams of flying for your family. A lot of good things can be said about that. About your scores, they aren't bad but they aren't great. Definitely finish up your PPL no doubt. Your age will definitely hurt you in some fighter communities, but weirder things have happened. Your main focus should be rushing all the units you can and really connecting with the pilots. That will get them to overlook your age and scores. Your scores can get you an interview at some fighter units but it looks like they are a limiting factor. So get out there and make the case for yourself on why they should hire you over the others. Good luck!
  4. I'm an alternate at a viper unit and while bummed that I wasn't first pick, I don't want to waste the opportunity as an alternate. I am worried about being annoying and checking in too much though. So how often should I check in with them? And how can I go about navigating visiting them during the year so that I can show face before their upcoming board this year? Have any alternates on here been hired on the next board? Want to gauge my chances and don't want to put all my eggs in one basket.
  5. Heard from the grapevine from a friend that Fort Wayne already sent interview invites. Not sure about rejections though haven't gotten one yet.
  6. Just want to say no one deserves that and I am terribly sorry for that situation. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
  7. So the waiver guide says asthma before the 13th birthday is waiverable with MCT. After age of 13 it is not waiverable.
  8. That's what I thought, I looked at multiple sources and the waiver guide says it is waiverable. That's why I am surprised that the board said it is not waiverable.
  9. Hey guys, so I just got out of an interview for a guard unit and was rejected immediately either because I couldn't "emotionally connect with the board", or because they asked of my medical history and I disclosed that I had childhood asthma. I told them during the interview that I took and passed the Methacholine Challenge Test and had those medical papers for proof. Well, I didn't clarify what a Methacholine Challenge Test was during the interview and apparently none of them knew what it was so I definitely should have clarified what it was. I got a call a few hours later not being invited back for the 2nd round of interviews because I couldn't connect emotionally with the pilots on the board and because "asthma is not a waiverable condition". I don't know if I'm losing my mind right now but I've looked through the Wright-Pat waiver guide and it says asthma before the 13th birthday is waiverable but anything after 13 is not and I have proof of that in my medical records. So my question is for non-prior guard applicants, is asthma waiverable provided you pass the MCT? Or was this just an excuse to not invite me back because I had a shit interview haha?
  10. Nice scores dude. Just knock the TBAS out of the park and you should be in good territory if you own up to your GPA mistakes. Some units require all parts of the application to be submitted or else it will not be considered. So just push to get it done. Otherwise, I'd say you have a great shot getting picked up granted you're visiting during drills and meet and greets and being a guy people want to be around. Good luck!
  11. Anyone know when Louisiana holding their board or have their dates? Can't get a hold of the POC at the gmail account.
  12. Can't deny, the GOP messing up. 2 full years to defund PP, fund wall, etc. The GOP is a huge embarrassment. The party most likely needs to die and a party more aligned to the American right that is stronger and less flaky would be beneficial. But how are you going to say the wall won't stop illegal activity ie. illegal immigrants? Berlin wall? West Bank barrier? Oh yeah, people can just fly over the wall, or dig under the wall. Silly me.
  13. Can you get a breathing restriction mask, train for a month, and re-take MCT with another civilian doctor?
  14. Last year Mass hired people who did not attend the meet and greet.
  15. Oh sh!t Boise just had a board? I didn't see it on Bogidope, do you have to contact them directly to get board info?
  16. Who is going to be in Oregon the weekend of Jan. 12th? Also when is the Ohio F-16 unit going to open their board up?
  17. Their past board last spring was the first board they had in 5-6 years IIRC. They also had over 150 applicants. One of the most competitive squadrons to get into and they probably aren't hiring for a long time for UPT.
  18. I definitely get the whole person concept, I was just wondering if I was able to list a higher GPA since 2.79 looks a lot better than 2.52, especially to the units that I am unable to visit or the units that don't allow visiting.
  19. This question only pertains to Guard applications. I have a pretty abysmal GPA from my degree granting institution: 2.52. I had to take courses at other colleges in order to get back to my first school, and did pretty well in those classes. My cumulative GPA from every college course taken towards my degree is 2.79. Do you guys think it is okay for me to list cumulative GPA on my resume and applications? I always attach all transcripts from all of those schools in my applications.
  20. Wrong time and place for the post. Sorry, prayers for him and the family
  21. Russians? No. The Democrats already figured out how to stop Russian interference. Kavanaugh putting his hands on another woman pushing without her consent? That sounds more plausible...
