    This forum has very few OTS posters. I would suggest you go to www.baseops.net Their forum have a lot more posters that go the OTS route than here. Additionally, with OTS increasing their numbers for FY16 to @1000 slots, but not knowing how many will go pilot be prepared to still live in a fluid situation.

    JMPO, and with $2.07 cents you can get a small coffee, but between your flight hours, the high PCSM and cgpa, you look very strong. It is just going to come down to how many UPT slots are available.
    ~ Big Blue is pushing a lot to get prior Es to go this route. Thus, again it comes down to what it always comes down to...supply and demand and the candidate pool.

    I am starting to sound like a broken record, but here it goes again.
    USAFA typically drops @500-550 Pilot slots
    AFROTC already dropped last year @380 (I think that was the number) for FY16 commissioning. FY17 will be dropping this week, and rumor is it will be 350.

    That totals out to be @850-900 slots awarded already for FY16/17. UPT bases (including ENJJPT) at full capacity can push through @1100 (@325 each for Del Rio, Vance and Columbus, ENJJPT only has 8 UPT classes, so they are less than 200) That means if my math is correct you can figure that @250 will drop annually for OTS, and than if you add in the fact that they have 2 boards, it would be @125 for each board.

    Honestly, I really think that at baseps.net they will say you look competitive.

    -thank you a lot for your response. I guess I was just looking for the confirmation because I don't know anyone who has been selected recently and the recruiter I am working with isn't the most helpful. I will head on over to baseops! Again, thank you!
