Or maybe almost a month... Did you get hired by a unit or are you still searching?

Great attitude.

I wasn't being serious, just having some fun. I apologize if I sounded like a douchebag. Recently hired, but I've been aware of that board for awhile.

Thanks, bud! My fault, probably should've been more subtle with the original post. :beer:

Hey dudes, I'm putting together a complete list of all fighter units and when their next UPT boards are going to be, along with a link to their respective UPT package information.  Let me know if you would be interested.

Invitations went out on the 7th. They are interviewing 14 people I think. Congrats to those that got it.

They emailed me on the 8 that I did not get selected for an interview. I expected it from my AFOQT scores. 

Congrats though to everyone who did get it!

I wonder what no answer at all means?

I emailed them first, that is probably why I heard back. I have had issues in the past with previous packets, where voicemails, emails and letters coming in late or not at all.

Hey bros. Kind of off topic but when I was looking for a slot, I would cruise this board to see who I was going to send my packet off to next. I got a lot of "thanks but no thanks" and it was discouraging. I know of a buddy who found himself in the same situation and eventually gave up on the dream. I sent packets to numerous units. I interviewed at four units before I got picked up. I also know of a dude, who's now in my class, that interviewed 11 times before getting picked up. Long story short, people who want this enough get picked up. Keep at it and keep plugging away. 

I'm currently BFM'ing my face off in B-course for the Viper and it's the best job I've ever had. Keep applying and keep pursuing this career! I've gotten so much from this board/site and I want to give back as much as I can. Please feel free to PM me for anything! 

As was once said to me, "Make them tell you no".

Anyone hear anything from Oregon? Heard through the grapevine they've started sending notifications.

Just got a response, and didn't make the cut. Looks like I was right up there in terms of scores so it must have been pretty competitive.

Is there any information online about the process of applying for an unsponsored applicant? Maybe I just suck at searching but I cant find any concrete information on the application process itself. Everything says go talk to a recruiter.
