Hey guys, I came in to the AFROTC as a 150 last year. So with a COVID semester, it’s definitely been hard to catch up with everything. To summarize, I am having trouble with marching and just generally making an impression to my Commander (he never talks to me or really considers me). I have a 3.7 GPA, 90% as my PFA score, and probably closer to the bottom in terms of commander’s ranking (as he treats me as if I don’t exist). I’ve heard from my AS instructor that some people don’t pass the board, and I’m feeling hopeless. Is it that hard to get selected for FT?
外围体育投注I am an AS400 Type 2 Scholarship Cadet and have been recently informed by our detachment secretary that using scholarship the last year of ROTC pushes back GI Bill from accruing during first four year active duty commitment. The idea of this is you would have to do 8 years active duty to have full GI Bill. Can anyone confirm this?
外围体育投注GI Bill is highly valuable to me, and I would be more willing to pay tuition in full for my senior year to have full GI Bill by the end of my first four years AD.
Our detachment currently uses a Google Sheet, but we've struggled to keep it up-to-date and well-formatted. What do other detachments recommend?
外围体育投注I know a lot is up in the air for the next year-ish for not only ROTC but the world.
Rated boards get sent early in the spring semester and at this point I think I have no shot of going and standing a chance, at getting pilot. My Det never did a spring pt test, so we'd have to go off my fall 19 test, a 90%. My worst FA. Also don't have great AFOQT score; I understand it's my fault but my Det told us we were having it about a week beforehand so that didn't help. Lastly I'm at a new Det so my CC rank will be starting from the bottom. I feel like I'm going through an uphill battle that's pointless since 1) I doubt we'll be taking the FA before rated board, 2) I don't know when or if I can even retake the AFOQT or when I could take the TBAS, and 3) I don't think that CC ranking is going to change that much if I have one online semester to 'make an impression', 4) deferred FT cadet.
Not looking for a pity party since everything is mostly my fault, but I thought I'd be able to pick my self up, not have a pandemic take over. I know everyone's in the same boat with the pandemic affecting their scores, etc. I just want some opinions if I'm being dramatic or if this seems accurate and maybe stick with non-rated AFSC. Thank you!
外围体育投注I’m trying to make my way into the AFROTC program, but really the end goal is to just become an officer. However I feel like I’ve hit a wall with COVID slowing everything down. I’m way behind the curve in terms of things I should know.
I haven’t taken any ASVAB yet or a PT, but I know I can get the sit ups and push ups not sweat, my best 1.5 mile on my own with my phone to help pace me was 9:47. Not sure if that’s good enough.
外围体育投注As of now I have 4 paths that I see as plausible.
Get my SAT up for applications and try to apply as soon as possible doing so with less leadership experience than I would like, because I just realized that Senior year is not on the table in terms of “experiences”. My first and only SAT was a 1210 without really studying but I knew the math pretty well, and I’ve have since lost it from lack of practice. I want to do a non-tech and work as a dietitian but that is super niche.
Essentially follow path 1 with the difference being choosing computer coding as a major to boost odds, because I’m not certain how much I can boost my test scores in this short period of time.
Go to a community college for a year or two in order to grow application and make sure I know what I’m in for. Especially after going through and EMT program for my senior year and an internship with a registered dietitian. Then transfer into AFROTC with or without a scholarship and try to get my debt paid off after being in the service.
外围体育投注Enlist right away and work towards a masters in dietetics while in the service and become a officer after further schooling.
