  1. Update: got a rated slot after getting busted underage drinking on AD as an E-3 or whatever. 10/10 would do again, if anyone else gets busted for it just own up to it to your commander and don't get caught again.
  2. Keep in mind that you can take the TBAS twice, and the second time people usually score higher. Although I feel that you will get a rockstar score your first time anyway, with your AFOQT scores and hours from your PPL. Your GPA is low, but I believe that many people know that the GPA for engineering majors tends to be lower. If you can explain to them why your GPA is so low (working through school, difficult courses, etc.), I'm sure they'll look at you favorably, especially with those AFOQT scores. That's my two cents, I'm a Prior-E and in AFROTC with limited knowledge on how the board would view this.
  3. Nope. Colors are too light; better to have darker colors like that new stuff the Army has.
  4. Anyone have any more info? Was informed by Cadre that for the 2015 year, there were three supplemental boards held after the first board. Looks like there will be plenty of opportunity for anyone not initially picked up. Also, cadets picked up from the 2015 board seem to be leaving to their training bases in a reasonable amount of time.
  5. Girlfriend wants me to do the matching flight suit thing for Halloween. I'm looking for the most offensive patches I can possibly find, especially those that will annoy/offend/disturb the kids at her primarily liberal school. They won't know what Tailhook is :( Please post links. If you have a rare patch that can't be bought anymore, I'd be willing to "borrow" it if you mail it to me with no return address, and I can mail it back to your local lair/PO Box/mistress' apartment. Disclaimer: Prior-E wannabe SNAP in AFROTC. Photos of me will not be released, but the girlfriend will be happy to model the offensive flight suit patches.
  6. I enlisted and did a few years before going into AFROTC, was able to use my G.I. Bill. Be advised that after a few years of being enlisted, going to AFROTC has the potential to drive you batshit insane.
  7. No, I mean I don't want to take whatever AFSC I'd get if I didn't get a slot, because I would be entering the AFSC without the desire to be in it, possibly taking it away from someone who does. Already made the mistake of "settling" on an AFSC. I'm pursuing multiple avenues of getting a pilot slot to increase my overall chances. Ideally I would like to get picked up by my unit, but right now I am determined to chase every avenue I can. I appreciate the advice from everyone, I think I'll wait it out and talk with my cadre to see what my options are.
  8. This gives me an opportunity to finish school faster, as well as get a better GPA. Questions: 1. What am I going to have to pay AFROTC back for Field Training, uniforms, etc? 2. How will OTS work if I've been through Field Training and the AS300 year? 3. How will Cadre/AFROTC respond? After screwing up and "settling" on my current enlisted AFSC a few years ago, I have decided that I need to exhaust every possible option before I accept another AFSC. I don't want to take a job in AFROTC that could go to someone else that would appreciate it more than I do. I am not a contracted POC and am currently attached to a Guard unit, of which I am planning to apply to as well. Stats: GPA: ~3.35 PFA: 99 AFOQT: Pilot 86 Nav 85 Academic 80 Verbal 89 Quant 49 PCSM: 55
  9. I picked this guy for an AFROTC writing assignment. Criteria was how an AF leader embodied one of the core values. Honestly had a hard time finding them and after reading this thread I cringe at the mental gymnastics i had to perform to shoehorn the paper. The AFROTC commander was a Viper driver too.
  10. My det didn't allow this. The 100 and 200 year classes has some great concepts that I learned from, plus they were great for my GPA despite being one credit hour courses. Plus it gave me an opportunity to interact with the cadre as well as my peers.
  11. Apparently there was a very high selection rate for cadets going to Field Training this year (~92% at my detachment), is it possible that there will be a similar occurrence for rated/pilot slots as well?
  12. When I was an enlisted M/X kid: 1. Was doing M/X on some pointy weapon system, started getting that weird taste in my mouth. Passed the tool I was using to another M/X kid, ran to the bathroom, puked, came back feeling 169% better and kept working. Other M/X kid had no idea what happened. 2. Ate too many supplements in the morning without actual food, got to work, got out of the car and threw up in the grass right in front of Chief. Pretty sure the grass on that spot was greener than the rest. 3. Basic Training - MTI has us chug water so we don't spend hours taking a piss test. Kid next to me throws up, causing another one to throw up. Everyone ignored them and kept drinking water. Sorry, forgot the stories had to be good.
  13. Not yet; I just posted a new thread regarding a similar topic that you might be interested in following. Keep us posted on how it goes for you
  14. [i know this question is asked occasionally, created a bunch of keywords to help search results] 1. Do all Guard/Reserve units require me to have my degree BEFORE the board date, or before the application date? I'll be commissioning through ROTC so if I get accepted I can get started right away... 2. Where are the best places to see which units are hiring? WantsCheck is always broken... 3. If a unit isn't hiring, how would one go about asking to see if they need new guys anyway? Is there a law or AF reg that says the position needs to be advertised?
