  1. A few things pop into my head, keep in mind I haven't been hired yet either but scored some alternates. How old are you? Rushing in the Guard is one of the most important things you can do. It can help offset low scores/bad package or it can distinguish you from the hoard which will also have 90's , high GPA, sports, etc. Therefore a lot of it comes down to when you visited, did they like you? Did you mesh well with a majority of the pilots? Not just 1 or 2. Timing. Sometimes you win some, sometimes you lose some. Did the squadron commanders son/daughter apply this time around? For most of us, this is a marathon. For the lucky few, it is a sprint. So it seems like the trend is, your scores are good enough for you to get interviews. The next thing for you to do is learn from those interviews. Have you been asking for feedback? Have you been iterating your interview setup? At this point, your package is fine. It's your interaction with the squadron/board that determines whether you get hired or not. Keep rushing, keep interviewing. If you stick with it then you will definitely get it. Though, as I keep saying, unless you are a fvcking weirdo, you will get it.
  2. TBH, most fighter squadrons wont give a sh!t about the GPA. Especially if you have a solid job with a solid company. It would be different if you were flipping burgers. Just write a well crafted cover letter explaining your situation, how and why you learned from it, etc. As I said, it doesn't really matter because of your scores and sports. Will you get invited to every interview for fighters? No, but you'll get a lot of invites. If you are hell bent on showing improvement on GPA, then just go back and get a masters. IMO, that's a waste of time and money and might make you lose focus. Keep rushing, interviewing, and polishing up the interview and you will get picked up in under 2 years, unless you're a fvcking weirdo.
  3. You're a shoe in. Work experience and good scores off-set the GPA. Especially since you have a mature story of how you learned from it. Just rush units and don't be a weirdo and you'll get picked up quickly by fighters if you interview well.
  4. Still trying to get an answer on this one. Has any off the street applicants been able to visit Wisconsin?
  5. Has anyone heard from Jacksonville, Vermont, or New Jersey yet?
  6. I've been told no, but maybe someone else different gauge?
  7. Does anyone have any gouge on Madison Wisconsin? I'm trying to rush but a recruiter is saying they don't allow visits. Is this the same as DC where the recruiter says that but on the down low you have to contact the pilots to go visit?
  8. You'll have to post your actual stats for anyone to give accurate insight.
  9. Who has gotten invites to all recent fighter boards?
  10. A buddy of mine just told me Wisconsin interviewed 20 people, rejected around 5 or so and might invite the rest back for a second round of interviews. Has anyone ever heard of this before?
