Has anyone heard interview results from the 115th FW in Madison, Wisconsin? 

Bro, you're already the Ultimate Fighter Pilot... Why do you care about ANG openings?

Troll. If you’re gonna waste everyone’s time, at least make it funny

I also think he is a troll...in case you aren't though, thanks for sharing how anxious, unhealthy, heartbroken, and bothered you are with this truly unfair process. You should definitely share these feelings in your cover letter and during any interviews. 🤡

Not unheard of. Been a part of two boards that did this.

I can tell you this is not true.  Everyone has been notified on where they stood about a week ago and nobody is coming back for a second round.  We had one slot for UPT this year and all interviewees was extremely competitive and made it a very difficult choice to make.  I'm not sure if the final decision has been released, but all interviewees know where they stacked up and have received feedback by this point.

If you have not, then let me know your name by PM and I'll follow up with the member of the interview board that was supposed to call you.

Does getting alternated a couple of times mean you're un-hire-able? 

I would think it means you're super close to getting hired.  Better than getting a straight up no or not getting an interview.  

Are you asking for feedback after your interviews?  What are squadrons telling you?

It could be worse. I've seen a few dudes (and gals) that have interviewed dozens of times and never got alternate.

Like many others have said, you're in the on-deck circle when many haven't gotten that close. I have spoken to a couple folkss in my (pretty limited) travels in getting a slot that were hired as alternates and got the spot when one of the main picks split to another offer (perhaps more of a round nose world thing, but still, it happens).  

Don't take it personal that they say "we like you; we just like this guy a little better." Them's the digs. Keep asking for feedback from anyone you've spoken with at your visits and you may catch a morsel in there that you've missed or that they're hinting at they would like you to do better. It could be something out of your control: maybe you're super young and they feel like "you've got time?" Or maybe you kill the interview, but you're not trying to talk enough to guys outside of it during the meet and greets? Or maybe you're hitting the booze a bit too much during the socializing, or not bringing booze when you go? 

It could be any number of little things that get you almost there, so try to find out what you might be able to do better. Either way, you're at least getting a chance that most of the others that come interview aren't and you're close to the promised land. Keep your head up and keep trying.

Good luck!

How long does it usually take to receive interview invites after the closing date of application for ANG boards?

It depends on the board. Normally they give a general timeframe in their announcement. Most that I’ve applied to sent invites out about a month after the application deadline.

One unit only waited a week or two, but that was not the norm.

Trying to get some information on two possible units and any future board information if possible.

 

193rd SOW in PA - I'll be up in that area this month for a TDY and would love an opportunity to stop by and meet a few folks if possible.

919th SOW in FL - I'd like to take a trip down there in January if anyone is available to chat.

 

Thanks in advance!

Oregon:

1) The 123rd at Portland just hosted two meet and greets on their drill weekends this past November and December. Awesome group of guys in a great location. I'm not sure if they are holding anymore, the emails that were sent out only mentioned those two events. Hit up the POC listed on their wing website or Bogidope, he's a good dude who will try to work with you though.

The 114th in Klamath Falls I believe also allows visits, I'm reaching out right now. They might be a little more flexible since they're obviously more remote. From what I've been looking at (briefly), expect some odd flight times into Medford and then a 1.5 hour drive into Klamath.

2) Last I heard was 3 for the 123rd and 2 for the 114th!!! :rock:

3) I didn't get the impression Portland only hired within but now that I think about it I never specifically asked hah. Either way, there was a bunch of us civilian wannabe's rushing both months.

Hope that helps.

Oh and Massachusetts is having a meet and greet March 1 open to all applicants and the 122nd out of LA is having a board sometime in the near future, if you want to visit contact the POC listed in this thread.

Don't forget Fresno, California. Gonna try to drop by sometime before the board...we'll see. I've heard it was a pretty exclusive squadron but I definitely intend to visit to see what's up.

Also if anyone's heading out to New Orleans for January Drill, let me know!

Wanting to talk about the new upcoming fighter boards. What info do we have for the 5 fighter boards currently up on Bogidope? Oregon, Massachusetts, Indiana, Vermont, New Jersey. 

 

  1. Which bases are allowing visits/rushing?
  2. Anyone know how many people each unit is hiring?
  3. Any of these units only hires from within?

 

Any other info to add?

Indiana: is not allowing visits due to ops tempo

New Orleans: hires 3 people per board

Will keep everyone updated on whatever comes my way

We might hire more if we get a good group of applicants.  We may hire less if they aren't as strong.  As a general rule we'd like to hire 3-4 per board in Nola, doesn't always work that way.
