    OTS Chances...

    Don't sweat the awards man (over-rated anyway). It's all about being well rounded. You've clearly made up for it in other categories. Stellar numbers.

    Honest feedback

    Thanks for your input. Very valuable.
  3. I'd say retake if your goal is ENJJPT and you are confident you can do better. If you do decide to retake, double down on your timed studying.
  4. Look at heavy units. I got picked up at 28.

    I'll review your packet for free.

    I can't help with your specific question, but I recommend getting your AFOQT/TBAS done and start applying to units. Let them decide at the flight physical.
  7. It was my understanding that there is no depth perception requirement for RPA, but you still need a waiver to get through school if you do not meet the standard. Could be wrong, but something to do with the limited amount of flying you do with the UPT studs?

    Change to Air Force Color Vision Policy

    So now all those poor bastards only have to get through line B on the OVT?
  9. Sounds like the typical case 😉
  10. I must have removed the sentence stating it would be more difficult to transfer components after swearing it. For reference, how long did it take for all your paperwork to transfer over? My case happened relatively quickly (3 weeks), but I had not sworn in.
  11. Sounds like my advice was incorrect as I assume you had already sworn in and done your FCI to get that far.
  12. You can apply for AD/guard/reserve simultaneously. The caveat is that only one component can "own" your MEPS records at a time. So if you get hired by a guard/reserve unit, you may have to submit a "notice of declination" or something similar to your AD recruiter. It can then take them quite some time to release your paperwork to another component. My suggestion would be to get your application rolling with the AD rated board (if you haven't already) while you continue to search for a guard/reserve unit. If you land an interview, just mention that you're also exploring the AD route. It's no big deal and will probably bode well for you, it's an indicator that you're dedicated. EDIT: I should add that if you get apply for, receive, and subsequently decline an offer from an AD rated board, you will not be considered again for another AD rated board.

    TBAS and AFOQT Studying

    I recommend studying.
  14. I agree that your first priority should definitely be to serve, but I think it's somewhat typical (at least in the Guard) to setup your contract such that it explicitly states you are enlisting/commissioning for the sole purpose of becoming a pilot with that particular squadron. I've seen guys wash out of UPT and given the option to take a non-rated job or just give up their commission entirely and move on with life.

    What are my chances

    I'd say you're SOL as far as the Air Force is concerned.
