    Our cadre just opened our Form 53's to us. We have until 1 May to complete them. Just wanted to give a heads up.

    Ditto. For a triple major like myself, the credit hour section is really fun.

    I am going for Space Operations/Chemist.

    Thanks for the info, just shared it with my DS. He would have probably found out about it tomorrow at LLab.

    DS told me that nothing was mentioned at LLab today about the Form 53 yet. In fact he says it hasn't been mentioned at all. I'm wondering if the May 1st deadline mentioned above is Det specific or National?

    It's Det specific. He will get something emailed to him to start the process. It's at the discretion of the Det. Commander.

    That's good to know. I told him to go ahead and start preparing his AFSC list in case he gets short notice to have it completed. He knows what his first couple of choices are, but he is still researching the rest.

    You're asked to select fields, not so much specific jobs, be prepared to put down jobs you aren't too excited for.

    Could you expound with examples? I thought one listed AFSC's like Cyber, Intel, Air Field Ops, Space Ops, etc.?

    Yes, you list AFSCs on the form 53. And you have to list six or needs of the Air Force take over (well they pretty much do anyway) but those bottom few of the six are probably not going to be your favorite. I just put down ones that would be better than NOAF.

    Thanks afrotc16, that's what I was thinking. Any 300's care to share their AFSC choices? Kind of neat to see cadets get what they ask for.

    Going to be hard to decide on 6 AFSCs to write down. Planning on going up to the rated boards this coming up year with aspirations of being a pilot. But you always have to plan for the worst case scenarios.

    My choices are:
    1. Space Operations
    2. Developmental Engineering (Mechanical Engineer)
    Those are my top two, really hoping for one of them :) Others are just filler (rather than NOAF).

    Space operations seems to be a popular AFSC choice. I believe it's one of my DS's top two choices also.

    Nope, they split up space and missiles a couple years ago. They are two separate career fields now.
