    Hello all,

    I'm sorry for being one of the bunches of people who have posted wondering about EAs. I'm exceptionally nervous, however. I'm a non-tech major and I'm also a 250 -- one thing that's to my advantage is that we just got a new commander this year.

    Could anyone tell me how they think I'm doing? I know the AF is doing a lot of cuts, but it's my dream to go to field training and I guess I just need someone to tell me realistically where I stand.

    My PFA should be a 92-97. Realistically, I'm looking at a 95. I'm a non-tech history and german major with a 3.75 - 3.8 cGPA (not sure about this yet). I'm thinking I'll be in the top 1/3 or the middle section for my commander's ranking -- I volunteer for every single thing they offer and I've been leading a LOT during lead labs. I've been busting my butt. I also am in drill team, I hold a 15 hour a week job to put myself through school and a research position at my university. My cadre know this. My cadre also know me fairly well and my staff sgt and I are on excellent terms -- I'm not trying to stroke my ego, but she likes me a lot, I think.

    My SAT was a 1750 and my AFOQT was 66 on the Acad Apt, 70 on the verbal and 60 on the quant. (My verbal was so poor compared to what I thought I could do.)

    BUT. Yeah. I've been working really hard, I think. Does this sound solid? Where do I stand?

    Nobody here sits on any board, and to give you any assurance would be wrong.

    We don't know what the selection rate for SFT will be this yr. My suggestion would be to talk to POCs in your det. to see what their stats were last yr for selection.

    I would move forward with the belief you will be selected. During this time I would study for the AFOQT because it will be part of the equation for AFSC selection as a 300 (rated) or 400 (non-rated). I don't know what career field you want, but if it is competitive you will want to have as high of score as you can, to obtain that AFSC.

    As I stated on other threads, our DS was required to take it as a freshman and he scored either a 91 or 94. He applied for rated, and received it, but had he decided not to go rated, or had he not been selected, he would have competed on the non-rated board, (Intel was his 1st choice) that would be 20% of the score.

    Just hung up with my DS. He informed me that their Commander announced today that due to the current lack of funds there will not only be no ICSP this semester, but there are no funds for the upcoming field training.

    While he expects that it more than likely by the time summer rolls around they will have come up with the funding. The number of EA's however will be reduced to an undetermined number due to not only the funding issues, but the uncertainty of the size of the AF in the near future.

    DEEP BREATHS.

    That is all I can say.

    Obviously not set in stone, as a POC now this is what has come through our CoC.


    Field Training is planned to be 22 days, with no training pay. Scholarship cadets will receive some sort of per-diem while both scholarship and non scholarship cadets will receive reimbursement for mileage traveled to/from the airport.

    Again, not set in stone, but it looks they AFROTC HQ is trying to solve some of or budget problems while still being able to train the needed amount of cadets for field training.
