Yes to Randolph and Vance does 2.5 now as well.

Thanks! Just wanted to confirm. I have some T-6 IP friends at all the UPT bases except Randolph so I didn't know if they were still doing it or if they moved it to being strictly at the normal UPT bases.

Is Randolph still a selectable base for UPT now? From articles it sounded like they took 5 classes for training of initial cadre on 2.5 and then might be done. 

Randolph no longer is doing UPT 2.5 IFAIK, just AMF-S. Columbus and Laughlin are expected to start UPT 2.5 this year.

I did not get my first choice, so I am trying to determine if I want to accept CSO. My scores were 92p/83pcsm. I just retook the TBAS and have a 92p/94pcsm. I would like to think those numbers would guarantee me a slot next year, but looking at the wide range of selects I am not so sure. If I accept CSO I would be able to apply one more time without an age waiver. I am trying to determine if I should go for it next year or take CSO since being a CSO helps with the package and offers a great backup position!

I don’t think numbers ever guarantee you a spot lol. I had a 75 pcsm and got picked up. If you look at the FY22 stats the lowest select had a 17…How’s your whole airmen concept?  Also, just because they had a lot of slots this year doesn’t mean they will have as many next year.

My 64 pilot score can definitely confirm it's not all numbers.

Yeah that’s what sucks lol. I thought my “well rounded airmen concept” would be my saving grace because I figured my numbers were mid average. Only downside was not finishing the ppl which made me 2 of 2 for applying. My wife is a CSO so things are limited. Might just take CSO and hope the age waiver stays around for the next time I apply. Would hate to apply next year and not get cso or pilot lol. Congrats on getting selected!!!! CSO was the only option I was on the fence about so of course that’s the one I get to ensure my stress levels are up 😂

I would reach out to Chris to see if he can give you feedback. My boss reached out on my behalf last year and I was able to see why I wasn't picked up (I had decent scores 86 PCSM, 96 Pilot, PPL). You can also reach out to people who got what you wanted. I had someone reach out to me last year asking about RPAs (I turned it down) but I had no issue sending my application to him. The numbers don't matter as much as we would think. I reapplied with the same scores and slightly better strats and I got picked up this year. 

Good luck in your decision!
