  1. I don't have the specifics number but is there a regulation against having a thin Cornea? It's only on one eye and my eye doc told me "it wasn't nothing to worry about" because in the two years he's checked it, it has not progressed. Anyone run into this hurdle before? Were you able to still fly?
  2. Maybe even bypass the 6 months and start earlier?
  3. According to AFMAN 36-2032: reapplication for nonselects/decline is 12 MONTHS not 6?
  4. Yeah but she shared her TFOT application and one can see why she was selected. Its that "Whole Person Concept" the AF loves to talk about. No flight hours but lots of leadership and volunteer experience. LORs from O6s and such. By the end I get the impression that for USAF, its better to have 100 hrs and lots of volunteer experience rather than 500 flight hrs and no volunteer experience.
  5. So if you leave after DEP then you'll need to disclose that you turned down a slot, but if you turn it down prior to DEP then you don't need to mention it? By the way, the latest version of this AFRSI 36-2001 I could find is 2005, has there not been any newer publications since?
  6. Damn, i hope you found an answer already. So how long do you have actually?? I just found out I got CSO for a recent board and I am in the same boat. I fear if I turn it down I will be severing ties with the USAF. I need time to make this call and my recruiter is only giving me 2 days...
  7. I am thinking about applying for the FY21 OTS boards and I just wanted to assess how the acceptance rates will be for upcoming boards. I ask because I have noticed a pattern. ~2012 there was the sequestration and the acceptance rates for anything in the USAF fell to all time lows. A void was created and needed to be filled. 2016-2019, these four years saw acceptance rates rise and peak around the '18-'19. A buddy of mine who was in AFROTC tells me pilots acceptance rates was as high as 90%. The USAF then started having problems with classes being overfilled and candidates having their EADs pushed back creating a ripple effect. 2020, I just applied for an OTS board this year and the acceptance rates (results not yet published) from what I can gather on FB and Reddit seems to suggest a decline for pilot slots down to ~40% I speculate it will continue to drop for the next couple years. This COVID thing probably exacerbated this decline to some degree which I cannot specify. Does anyone have any rumors or solid intel to confirm or deny this?
  8. Hey there, I had the same issue and was med DQd a couple years back. After I was out, I had it checked by multiple doctors who all told me the same, basically it's "stable and no risk of perforation" etc... Will it still be a problem for my eye evals at Wright Patt?
  9. Was it the same when reapplying for OTS?
  10. Just curious if OTS rated boards have a supplemental board like AFROTC does and when is it? What happens to the slots filled by cadets who end up being DQd or leave for whatever reasons?
  11. No am currently working on my commercial at a flight school. At this point I have already invested a lot of money into this so to hang it up and put in on hold for 8 years will not leave me in good footing with the airline industry once I get out of the USAF.
  12. How do you know this? I am considering dropping my slot but my recruiter told me if I did as such, I could essentially toss away the dream of being a USAF pilot.
  13. Congrats man! I was curious, on top of your PCSM did you have strong academics or volunteer work (they seem to love this one)?
  14. Terminator5lf, can you link the source document?
