  1. Same. I doubt they do, as there are probably well over 200 applications this year
  2. Hey man, just here for some words of encouragement. You have a higher PCSM that I do, you have more flight hours than I do, your AFOQT scores are almost identical to mine, your GPA is lower than mine however by .4 points, but you also have military experience that I don't. I was selected as an alternate at a fighter unit with numbers like you have, I think you're competitive if we are just talking scores alone. You must have done extremely well on the TBAS...I plan to retake mine in a few months so I can get a solid PCSM like yours. Good luck!
  3. Interested as well to hear about the topics of discussion for those that were on the call last night.
  4. ANG Fighter Unit Selected me to be their Alternate View File I was fortunate enough to be selected by a Fighter Unit as an alternate a little over a week ago. Just a few questions for some of the guys that may have been in this situation…. Did you eventually get the primary slot? Did you ever hear back? If so, how long until you heard back? Did having the alternate selection give you an advantage (in your opinion) at the next board of interviews if you were selected to interview again? How common is it in your opinion that an Alternate gets moved to Primary? For some that are just curious, I do not have great scores, in fact I don’t even have a 90 on anything in regards to AFOQT/PCSM. Not to say that scores are not important, making it this far in the process I am a firm believer that it is who you are as a person that matters the most (at least for the squadron I interviewed with). When I first received my AFOQT/PCSM scores back I immediately thought that I would have no chance at being a pilot with the ANG, let alone becoming a fighter pilot…… But I still rushed the unit, met everyone I could, put together my crispest package, and kept my head humble every step of the way. If your scores are sub 90s don’t let it discourage you, you can still get that interview with your dream squadron like I did. Just keep working my friend. In the meantime I’ll keep grinding and applying as nothing is guaranteed, Thank you for sharing. Submitter UPTapplicant96 Submitted 08/11/2020 Category T-44 / TC-12 Gouge  
  5. Thanks for the helpful insight and encouragement guys. I was thinking about giving them a call 2-3 months down the road from now or writing the board a letter letting them know what I've been up to if COVID don't disappear. I actually never visited the squadron until I was interviewed due to COVID and living in other states.... but I definitely will be making that a priority as soon as they allow visitors.
  6. New guy on the forum here, i was recently selected as an alternate by an ANG Viper Unit. 1. Does anybody have any experience they can share about being selected as an alternate? 2. Did you eventually make it as a primary? 3. Did you get picked up on the next board? 4.Did you get hired by another unit? How often are you checking in with the squadron leaders letting them know you're ready at any time they need you? .....Some back ground on myself..... Pilot AFOQT: 87 PCSM: 75 PPL: 70 hours 24.5 years old I live relatively close to the unit I was selected as an alternate. Bachelors Degree in STEM Field: 3.5 GPA Prior supervisory and engineering positions at an aerospace and defense company. Tip: I'm still shotgunning my application anywhere I see a fit and will be working toward my instrument this fall/spring...Thank you!
