    Hello all,

    I've been hearing different things about when the class of 2014 (current 300s) get their AFSCs and that the timeline for AFSC selection might have been changed.

    I've heard March 2013, and then I've heard October 2013 (When they're 400s already). Which one is it gonna be? :confused:

    I graduated in May 12 and we (non-rated) got our AFSCs in October 11. The rated guys got theirs in March 11. As far as I know it hasn't changed since then. So non-rated May 14 grads should expect them in Fall 2013 and rated should expect them earlier in the Spring.

    Someone please correct if things have changed.

    Our DS commissioned last spring with Nick, and he got his rated slot 1st week of March as a C300. He got his UPT base selection as a C400 around this time. He got his RNLTD in the spring (March) of his C400 yr. His RNLTD changed 3X before it was final, so don't start packing until you have orders in hand.

    There are two reasons why rated get theirs in the spring of C300.
    1. They will go to Wright Pat for a 3 day flight physical over the summer of their rising C400. Bust the exam and they will go up for the non-rated board.
    2. Not selected for rated in the spring, they will go up for a non-rated board in the fall.

    There is a method to the madness.

    If you want rated and ENJJPT, remember that is akin to a board within a board. Not every cadet requests ENJJPT, so they have to go back in and select those that did by OML procedures.

    If you get alternate as a C300, rated is not off the table, if someone busts the physical, than they start moving people around. DS's classmate was alt. for rated, had an Intel slot. 45 days prior to commissioning he was picked up for UAVs. *Probably the UAV pilot needed a waiver and didn't get it, so he slid in.

    Hence, again why the rated board goes 1st. Physically for DoDMERB purposes it may take them more time to clear them than a non-rated member.

    There is some Ohio consensus right now that non-rated AFSCs for the current 300s go out March 2013...!

    Can anyone else confirm this?

    Logistically from an MPC perspective I doubt it.

    If it did come out in Spring, I would think May/June at the earliest because there is a logical reason from manpower and flight medicine why rated goes 1st before non-rated.

    Releasing at the same time as rated would cause too many problems. Please see my earlier post regarding the rated process, specifically, medical.

    They do this exam in the summer, because there are some that are AF qual, but not flight qual, thus they go non-rated. Plus, although 100% of all AFROTC commissioned go AD, 100% of AFROTC cadets that request rated don't get it, which would equate to a 2nd non-rated board if they did it at the same time as rated. Come next fall, they would have to take the cadets that didn't get selected for rated, and the cadets that were not flight qual for another board. How would you feel as a 3.6 cgpa tech, 98 PFT, top 10% SFT, etc, UPT selected, but busted your flight physical, not AF physical and now got the left overs because you didn't know before hand your eyes were going to get you.

    Finally, talk to your det. They know the truth. If you are a C300, let's be honest, March results would mean Feb board, and by now the det. would be sitting you down for your AFSC dream sheet. I am betting the rated C300s currently have taken their TBAS. That they have submitted their rated dream sheet regarding Pilot, CSO, ABM, UAV and ABM. Have non-rateds in your det done the same? Xmas break is approaching, if that is a Feb board date, and you come back Jan 15th., than the clock is running out for them to have that sit down.
