    So the reduction means you don't have to get a waiver for eye surgery anymore? My physical is already submitted with a waiver for LASIK so I'm just wondering. 

    According to my flight doc, as long as there were no complications and you pass the FC1 eye exam you don't need a waiver anymore for eye surgery

    I know this doesn't make any non-selects situation and better, but at least you know the results. My Commander and his staff were out of the office because of crazy weather in the northeast. I get to burn another weekend contantly thinking about the results. 

    It is definitely crazy to hear that good dudes with great scores not getting selected. That's not going to make my weekend any shorter! Especially with an average PCSM and coming from a non-rated AFSC. 

    My current Commander is a F15 WSO and he said he believes you’re less likely to get selected from rated communities due to their critical Manning and longer training time. Non rated dudes can have a “replacement” trained in a much shorter time than the 3+ years it takes to get a MQd WSO etc.

  3. Commander at my base told his Lt 112 were selected for rated out of 200 applicants.  Not sure what kind of Pilot/CSO/RPA/ABM spread but seems like a pretty good year for us AD guys.  I didn't apply this year, but will be chasing the 2019 board...Grats to all the selects!

  4. Studying for the AFOQT and having trouble finding great study information for the Aviation Knowledge section... Has anyone found a useful resource that will actually help prepare someone to crush that section? I have zero flying hours, will work on my PPL once I get home from my deployment, so that route for knowledge won't work for me.  Preparing for the 2019 AD UPT Board.

  5. Random, but related... How competitive is the AD Board compared to OTS/ROTC/Etc? I'm an Academy guy who didn't apply for rated while I was there (Oops), but if you managed to graduate in the upper 75% of the class, a spot was all but guarenteed. Do we know the rough acceptance rate here?
