This summer at FT, a couple of things were said about the rated board and about kids who received rated EAs. I was told that if one received a rated EA, then they were given a rated position but the job had yet to be determined. Meaning the Air Force determined the amount of kids they would need for rated, accepted them and are just assigning them positions this board. This was basically what I was told. Speaking with a few members of my Cadre I realized there is a miscommunication, because they were told we would be merged non-rated if we didn't receive a rated job. Implying we weren't selected and now awaiting jobs, that instead we had yet to be selected. Anyone hear from their Cadre? Also, I heard the board was going to be the same as last year. There have been rumors that there would be higher selection rate due to the airlines changing requirements, but I've heard the contrary.
