    Looking to get an idea of how many cadets are going Tech...

    So this is a real simple survey...

    AFROTC 200/250 cadets... Are you Tech major or Non-tech major? And if you are Tech. What is your major?

    My DS is Tech - Civil Engineering


    Cooking beef livers for my dogs....had to come up with a good reason to stay out of the kitchen for awhile!!

    Tech - Mechanical Engineering

    Also I thought it might be worth it to note that most of the 200s in my det are going tech. I think only 3 are going rated and maybe 4-5 non-tech (out of 16). Well I guess it's understandable since we're at an engineering school.

    Curious to see for the Non Techs how many are competing on the Rated Board.

    My guess what be at least 50-50, maybe more because of the idea that going rated will give an edge for SFT.
    ~~~ I have to be honest, what scares me is that the cadets don't understand the rated board system, You can put pilot as number 1 and ABM as 4, but if you get ABM than you are going ABM. You don't get the option of saying re-board me again, or go non-rated and two years later re-try for UPT.
    ~ At least that is what our friend's DS that now CSO told me.

    I know for our DS's det. 13 cadets got rated. 11 pilots, 1 CSO and 1 RPA. Out of the 13, 6 were non-tech. The CSO was tech (eye issues). Thus, 50% were non.tech that went UPT.

    For those wanting to go rated, beware of PCSM 2.0. Flight hours matter a lot now.

    Its been a few years since I was an AS200, but our Det had about a 75/25 split, favoring tech majors. But then again we were and engineering school.

    Non-tech Economics going for rated.

    When my commander asked me if I was going rated she stated that if I was going rated I would be applying for all of the rated positions. It used to be that a cadet can choose just one rated position and if they don't get it they are allowed to become non-rated but since PCSM 2.0 rolled out the rated board changed so that any rated candidate has to apply to all of the rated positions.
