CSO drop nights

Recommended Posts

Random question related to drops.  How much do they take into account what a student is good at?  Like for instance if you have someone who is super good at EWO stuff but wants Strikes, how does that play out?  And if it does matter does it trump class ranking?

Generally speaking, class ranking is the number one thing that's looked at. If you're number one and shit hot at EWO wizardry but want strike eagles, you'll get strike eagles (provided there's one in your drop).

Not at all, unfortunately. We're seeing a lot of skill/personality mismatches at the FTU... Guys who love the geekery and genuinely wanted an RJ sent to a B-1 instead.

Same in the Buff.  We've had guys who were #1 in their class during the EW phase get WSO slots.  Point being, be the best you can be (without screwing your bros!) and you'll be in a better position to get what you want.

Think I got them all, the end slide format was messed up but this is most of them. Most got in their top 5, if not the few others had their top 10.
Also found out that the Growler gig is for a 6 year tour

Interesting. So the tour makes up your entire ADSC? And would that mean no PCSing since you’d be at Whidbey Island the whole time?

From what I understand, I don't have a whole lot of info or first hand accounts. Just the hearsay around the students from what they are telling the studs that drop it.

Small class...

Don’t worry. FY19 classes will increase to 25-30 students and production will increase annually from 270ish to 400...without additional resources.

This is actually happening. Enjoy what the schoolhouse will give you next year!
