  • @Pima I read an earlier post of yours referring to your DS's friend from AFROTC that worked a desk for 5 years then joined the Guard as a pilot. Is there any way you could put me in contact with your DS or his friend?
    I am in a similar position, having just received my commission from a service academy(USCGA). I am debating the 5 year then serve the Guard route, like your DS's friend. My other option would be the active duty 13-year route. Ultimately, I wish to become an airline pilot. Thank you for your consideration.
    Hi Pima,
    I was misdiagnosed with PTSD last year and but new psychistrist reevaluated me n says I dont have it.
    Also, I went to the e.r. about 12 times 1 yr ago bc I had problems at home.

    Will the above DQ me?
    If yes, is there any hope for me to overturn the DQ or fight it?
    @Pima, I'm 21, just got a bachelors degree (electrical eng.), but didn't do ROTC. I'm considering both OTS and the AFA. My grades are good, I have some community service but my afpft score is below 80 when I tested myself. I'm used to the hot climate of the south. Are minimum scores good enough while at OTS, or do I need to excel? I'm trying my hardest to get 85.
    I'm thinking about CFA and nomination a bit later.
    my right eye has a sphere of +1.50 and a Cylinder of -3.00 My left eye has a 0.00 sphere and a -1.00 Cylinder Am I done for AF Pilot or can I get PRK? Thank you
    I'm a sophomore in High School. Can I still apply for an Airforce rotc scholarship?
    No. You can't apply until the end of your junior year
    I would just like to ask if it is possible to apply for both an AROTC and AFROTC scholarship at the same time? Then if I do get accepted to one, the other, or both, I can just make my choice?
    I am comparing the pros/cons of AFROTC vs AFA. I'm not going to lie, I'm not quite in High School yet but have a dream of becoming a pilot. I'm not sure if it's too early to do something, but if there is anything I could do to "become a pilot", please let me know. Which do you think is better overall, ROTC or AFROTC? I know it's a little early to know for sure yet but I want to get a good idea of what I want to do.
    You are young...don't get tunnel vision. AFROTC and USAFA are different from the get go. Take this time and ask the folks for some flight hours as a birthday present and move on from there.
    Flight hours for your birthday? I like in Cleveland so that may be difficult. Also, my family isn't the "military type." The last man in the armed forces for us was before WWII. I don't really want to talk to them about it yet, but thank you for the advice on "tunnel vision." I think I will wait until jr. year in high school to make a decison.
    Hi, I was wondering if color vision is a dq for afrotc. I havent been able to find a solid answer and was wondering if you could give me one. I know that color vision is needed to be a pilot and to fly in general, but what about other jobs?
    I have confidence that I can get a waiver for my slight allergy (never had any reactions, no medication used or carried, I can eat things cooked in peanut oil, and I don't have a special diet I just avoid eating peanuts/butter) but it does worry me a lot.
    Hello sir. I was wondering if you could eat all explain the process for getting a peanut allergy waiver. I am currently going through the Army ROTC scholarship process and this is my only bump in the road. I believe I have a good chance for a scholarship but this worries me.
    You just have to go through the process of DoDMERB. Once offered the scholarship they will send you for the exam. If you are DQd they will request a waiver for you.Be prepared to submit any medical records to support that the allergy is not a risk as long as you don't eat PB.
    My boy is graduating max 5 field training on Monday. He wrote us a letter that he has been selected as a guidon for the graduation parade. We were wondering what that title is and what entails for the parade. Seeing how your knowledge and prompt responses to others seems your the best approach for an answer. Will be thankful for a reply.
    When will the seniors be notified if they have been selected for UPT and which bases are used to train our future pilots?
    AFROTC notifies the selection for UPT as juniors. ENJJPT is the fall. Their base drop is @Nov (if I recall correctly). The report date comes down @ Mar, but it can change. Expect typically 6-9 months wait to report, and another 3 months before you start UPT. UPT bases are Columbus, Laughlin and Vance. ENJJPT is Sheppard. RPAs are at San Antonio. CSO is Pensacola.
    Hello Pima, I have been seeing your posts on a lot of the forums and figured you knew a lot about the Academies. I will be going back to school as a senior, this coming school year.
    I have been preparing a lot but I'm still unsure about this whole process!I really would like to attend a Service Academy, but at this point, I don't know if I am qualified enough for an appointment. i have a resume ready and if you could please get back to me, I would gladly appreciate it!
    DS is trying to decide between an appointment to USAFA and AFROTC scholarship. I understand the academy process, not the ROTC. In the long run, which do you feel is better. Yes, I know this is a loaded question, but I need a place to start. Thanks Pima
    Do you think being invited to CVW helps in gaining appointment to USNA? My DS went in September and truly enjoyed the experience. When they send you the information it says that it does not mean that you will get an appointment, however, they would not ask if they (USNA) were not very interested in the candidate. We visited USAFA in October but he fell in love with USNA.
    It can be a good sign, but remember an appointment involves the WCS and nominations. For example, the MOC slate that you are on may have given a principal. That means you will go into the national pool. Or there could be someone else with a higher WCS. Again you will than go to the national pool. You just have to sit and wait. Good luck
