Hey all, first time poster, long time lurker. I joined today to just speak my mind on matters I find somewhat amusing - Enrollment Allocations. I see stats of cadets that seem like reasonable applicants freaking out over the possibility of not getting an EA. Hello! There are 2,200 slots being given out. Yes more so to Tech Majors than Non-Tech, but quit saying "they're only accepting 40%!" Look at it this way, 40% is the amount had there been the original 5,000+ AS200 cadets getting packages sent in. But there is not going to be that many being sent in this year. Look at your Detachment. How many AS200s/250s have dropped the program since the start of the year? I want you to consider that. At a couple Detachments in a 40 mile radius, there were ~40 AS200s at the beginning of the year. Now they're down to high 20s and low 30s. About a 25% drop rate? That's bound to happen on the national scale. Maybe not that high, but let's give it a 20% drop rate. 20% of 5,000 is 1,000 cadets. ~4,000 packages being sent. 2,200/4,000 = 55% Not much less from last year and much higher from the start of this year. Quit stressing over Max 6 being removed and the rumors of 1,800 slots - it's false. They are just increasing the numbers at the remaining Max 1-5. Still 2,200 EAs to be given. Then look at the number of EAs that get declined/taken away due to random reasons. This number is always in the hundreds. Meaning those on the border end up getting their EAs. As long as you're doing well in your Det, you're getting your EA. I don't care if you're Tech or not, and I don't care if stats are looked at on the national level. Your Det is a small part of that national whole. If you're top third in ranking at your Det, imagine where you are on the national scale. Relatively the same part. Think about it, if you don't get your slot but you're top third, the rest of your class isn't getting one, making a detachment drop in size dramatically - plus the motivation to get new recruited cadets will be even smaller. Dets need cadets to survive. This is all. If you have any arguments on this, feel free to fire them at me, but I know for a fact most of you here with your stats are getting EAs. You obviously care about the program enough to be stressing this much, I'm sure you've spoken the stuff you've typed out to your commander and they acknowledge this. Good luck to all.
