    AFOQT Score

    The AFOQT is basically not used for the rated board selection. Instead it is replaced with the TBAS. The AFOQT is more for SFT selection. Yes, his scores are high, but again, it will be more about the TBAS and how many flight hours. I don't think anyone even gets selected for SFT with a...

    Commissioning Question

    For AFROTC scholarships, it has been stated that 80-85% will go to Tech, and the remainder will go to non-tech. If you even look at the breakdowns,, the highest chance for a non-tech scholarship is a type 7, where 25% go to non tech. Type 1, is only 5% of all scholarships offered, and only 5%...

    ROTC to USAFA

    Inform your cadre as soon as possible. They are not anti-USAFA. You will want them to support you for a ROTC nomination. Make sure you max your PFA. Take the most aggressive academic schedule you can handle. Find out if they give the AFOQT to freshmen, if so, use the summer to do the...

    Wanting Army ROTC but only AF is available...

    @LostInOKC I think you really need to sit down with him now. Our cousin went to Valley Forge (self prep) that really is more for trying to get into an SA. I agree with others, if he is going to go ROTC in college, than he needs to look at the bigger picture. That means the most aggressive...

    Wanting Army ROTC but only AF is available...

    It is JROTC, there are many kids that do JROTC in one branch and go off after graduation to another branch. It really has no bearing regarding enlistment. The reason I say this is because once he enlists he will have to go to basic training and whatever specialty school after wards. They...

    Call from Naval Academy??

    I agree with Old Navy, reach out. The one thing that you should be cognizant of if you have not opened a USNA package. You need a nomination for an appointment. Many MoCs have closed or about to close their applications for a nom by now. Talk to that person regarding how you will get a nom if...

    @txfwindian Their clock will not start until they report to their 1st assignment. ~ Our DS is a pilot. He reported for casual status in Sept. although his UPT class did not start until April. His clock started in Sept. Since he went on and winged The following March, his AF commitment...

    First assignment after college

    Which branch? It will never take years. For the AF, 6-9 months is at the top end of the spectrum, and rare for reporting to their 1st assignment. ~ Caveat, rated can report 5 months after commissioning, but not start their rated school for 9 months. They are basically on casual status. ADAF...

    AFROTC Field Training Limit

    Did you not pass on the 1st shot? The AFOQT is a chunk of your score for selection. I am not going to sugar coat anything here, bc I am sure you know what I am about to write regarding non-tech/non-rated. It has the lowest selection rate of the 4. That is not to say there is no chance even...

    Chances at AROTC and AFROTC Scholarships

    One thing that is different about AFROTC compared to AROTC and NROTC is the only thing they take into account for your senior yr is a new SAT/ACT scores. They only review everything else through your 11th grade. IE They will not see student council president as a senior, nor any sports you are...

    Air Force ROTC Scholarships / Admissions - AMA

    If I recall correctly it was about 4 or 5 yrs ago that they did only reboard 1x, it was the very last board they held in the end of March. Anyone that was not selected during their 1st round were basically placed on hold until the end. I think they did that for only 1 yr.

    Air Force ROTC Scholarships / Admissions - AMA

    I am not disagreeing, but want to say that it is important for candidates to understand regarding their approach is they get a ROUGH start or patch, what they are looking for is a positive progression academically. This usually also can come across during the interview. Hence, why they do the...

    AFROTC type 7 scholarship

    An AS100 is what a freshmen cadet. A sophomore is considered either an AS 200 or 250. The 250 is the cadet that walked on as a sophomore, not contracted. Scholarship recipients are considered contracted. Yes, she can just graduate with more credits. My DS graduated with @30 credits more than...

    AFROTC type 7 scholarship

    Unless something has changed with the type 7 if you read the fine print it basically says it can go anywhere, including private as long as it does not exceed the cost of IS. In that case it should be a yes. There are many kids that go to TAMU, but are not TX residents and use the Type 7, bc...

    AFROTC Field Training Limit

    Don't jump to conclusions yet. Note they said they are reducing the number, but also note they said nothing about the pool size....see my previous post. Let's say last year they sent 2200, and they had 2500 cadets up for selection. This yr they will only send 1800, but the pool size is 2100...

    DQ'd for mild eczema

    +1 kinnem. The reason eczema is an issue is for 2 reasons. 1. Shots ~ Some areas for deployment require specific shots and those shots do not react well with people who officially have been diagnosed with eczema. 2. Deployment ~ Anyone that has eczema knows that it never goes away, it just...

    Presidential Nom Question

    +1 justdoit19 To me the reason you see a lot of Presidential in the early days b4 MoCs is because the boards start meeting in Oct. and many of the MoCs have yet to submit their slates. Hence, the ones boarded have a higher percentage of Presidential compared to just an MoC. That being...

    AFROTC Field Training Limit

    When you say your detachment, are you saying your cadre or just you heard from another cadet that heard from a cadet who was told by the PMS? If it is the latter go directly to your cadre and ask them. The thing with something like the you heard from another cadet, is the PMS might have...
