  1. Does anyone have any solid info on the process for current reserve members to submit sponsored applications for the AFRC UFT board. Been working with my FSS on the matter and have gotten lots of varying guidance. 36-2205 has been the main guidance but seems to not coincide with other info. We've been unable to find a POC to contact as well. Also since I'm a current reserve member officer recruiter can't handle this. Basically looking for EXACTLY what to send and where to send it to. Edit: if you've done this with your FSS can you pm me their info maybe so we can contact them for guidance? I'm the first case like this for our FSS so they learning.
  2. Anyone have any experience with PhD level engineering work for a company like JPL or similar? Is it feasible to balance such FULL time work with guard/reserve flying? I understand that being an engineer itself is definitely feasible but is it also possible for an engineering gig with a lot more responsibility? Like leading the team that designs the control system and algorithms for a rover that lands on titan or something similar for example.

    PRK and LASIK Information

    is 3.25 diopters of astigmatism (pre-PRK) going to be a killing blow? Everything else is good to go, but will that measly .25 over the limit kill any chance? All the literature on here leans towards the waiver guidelines being hard limits, but with something so close do they make exceptions or are the regs the law?

    Only one squadron so far didn't notify me until I asked. Most tend to have the courtesy to let you know. But at the same time some boards get 100's of applicants so it can be quite tasking. I'm not sure how exact the Oct. 8th deadline is, but I'm gonna wait a few days to ask anything so I don't add anymore e-mail buildup if they are just a little busy and behind.

    I mean that process for updating the hours is so Fing stupid it is unbelievable... Started out with like 60 hours and now I've had 250 hours for ages and just say I have the 200+ score. I just circle it on the sheet I print out. Haven't had any repercussions from it yet.
