Bogidope said fighter squadrons require higher pcsm than heavy squadron. Is there any truth to this?

Not a mil pilot (yet) so I obviously can't speak definitively, but I think generally speaking yes. There are probably heavier squadrons with really high PCSM thresholds, and fighter squadrons that don't give it too much weight, but my experience as an applicant has been yes. I think the bottom line is to just be the best applicant you can be, apply everywhere you could see yourself, and enjoy what works out. Thinking about the details will drive you crazy.

C5 unit in San Antonio told me they require at least a high 80's score on the PCSM for most applicants to be considered. It will vary from unit to unit. I got hired on my first interview in 2014 with a PCSM of 72 and average AFOQT stats. Have a solid cover letter that outlines you as a person and enjoy the process.

On a different note, is Bogidope a new website within the past few years? I remember having to go to each units website individually and see if they were hiring.

Yeah I think it’s only been around for 2 or 3 years as far as I know.

Ha, yes I see the PDF but don't see a list of what they want included in the packet on the PDF, only the eligibility requirements. I suppose we could just read between the lines and include the info in the eligibility reqs, but usually it's more clear-cut than that. 

Hey looks like they edited their post and added more PDFs with the requirements.

Is there a waiver to take the PCSM a 3rd time like you can with the AFOQT?

If you mean the TBAS I’m pretty sure there’s not. Thought I read somewhere that a waiver is not possible for an additional retake. If I find a source I’ll post it here.

You can always add a cherry on top for the other 40% of the time too

Madison Wisconsin does allow rushing. Just got word that applicants can visit the u starting on the weekend of Dec. 7-8. You might want to confirm with the unit though. But it is not like last year where you can't visit.

How did you hear about this?

Any gouge on the 307th bomb wing (B-52H out of Barksdale AFB)? They don’t show up on Bogidope, but they are part of the reserves. Any idea if they have UPT boards?
