I mean that none of the "unsponsored" candidates got selected to go. Thanks for asking for clarification. I should have worded that better. 

Hell of a pendulum swing from what it sounds like the pick-up rate for unsponsored candidates was on the last board.

Might not be the best place to ask, but would anyone mind chatting with me quick about the process for grabbing a reserve (both unsponsored and sponsored) slot? I've primarily focused ANG and have a good grasp on that process, but I'm still wondering about the reserve process. Appreciate any insight. I'm a non-prior, btw.

Next AFRC board will be June. Again, get your medical clearance completed before the package submission deadline. Meaning if you need MFS, you should be scheduled a full month ahead. Remember if you already did MFS, the clearances are good for ~4 years, so just reapply with your last certification.

Has anyone heard from Idaho yet? The notification window has come and gone.

I believe the calls for Idaho went out today.

Wondering the same thing about Michigan. Nothing here yet.

I emailed on the 15th asking if notifications had gone out.  The response said applications would be finalized and notifications would go out on the 20th.. I'm guessing Monday.

The original announcement said they are holding a selection board in early February.  I interpreted that to mean that that's when the interviews were going to be held.  When I contacted the recruiter 2 weeks ago I was told the February board date is actually the day they will be selecting which candidates to interview.

That doesn't sound correct.

Forgive me coming in late to this... but Selfridge is having a board? I've been trying to call them for the last 3 months and had nothing but the run around. If someone could fill me in, it would be much appreciated.

The only real information I can find is in the application package that says, 

"The board is held at the 113th Wing at Andrews AFB, MD. Interviews will be scheduled approximately one month in advance"

Just was told that the 113th WG hasn't sent out invites. Apparently they're very deliberate in the process and have historically taken their time. Told to expect something in 1-2 weeks, 3 max.

I'd like to spread the word about this resource for those of you who have not heard about it.  Emerald Coast Interview Consulting is an excellent interview 'training' firm. They don't exactly 'give you the answers' per say, but they help you build a tool kit to reach into while building your answers before and during the interview that help highlight your strengths and accomplishments and then help polish your delivery.

It's primarily geared toward folks interviewing for airline jobs, but it's owned by a former Eagle driver and many of the instructors are current / former guard pilots.  Once you've bought into the program you can use the web content and attend as many seminars as you'd like, and continue using it several years from now if you decide to go to the airlines after seasoning days.  I attended one seminar, most of my fellow students were guard pilots looking for airline jobs, so more networking opportunities and some insider information straight from the source.  The instructors I worked with seemed genuinely concerned with helping all of us get hired.  It helped me tremendously and was instrumental in landing a slot recently.  It's not exactly cheap, but for me it was well worth it.  Check them out, good luck everyone!

Their AOL e-mail address really gives it the professional touch.

It just demonstrates their rich heritage, I doubt AOL has given out a new email address in 10+ years.

Albie has it nailed down cold when it comes to interview prep. Great guy, FedEx, retired FANG Eagle Driver doing IP at Tyndall back in the day, and flew OV-10's. Great program with excellent customer service. He's currently based out of Hong Kong but travels back all the time for classes, seminars, etc. Two thumbs way up for a Great American.

Notifications went out for the 113th WG. I didn't get selected for an interview, but best of luck to the rest of y'all.
