    I need to start studying for Master now so I can have a shot at Senior before I retire. :o

    :(

    That's pretty close though, it sounds like you'll have a good shot next year.

    Why is that? Seems like a great balance of responsibility and pay.

    I scored 93% better than others on PDG and 92% better than others in SKT. I just don't seem to have enough TIG or TIS.

    I hit 11 years recently, so my career is turning out to be perfectly average, since that's the average time it takes for somebody to make TSgt. I'm hoping to get ahead of the curve by making MSgt. the first time, which looks like it should be do-able if I prepare for it. My goal is to make SMSgt. before I retire. I'm not cut out to be a Chief, so I'm not that ambitious.

    :bowdown:

    Well, you didn't miss it for lack of preparation, you should have a good shot next year. I did that well on my PDG, but I bombed my SKT in comparison.

    I made it this year first time testing. I've been in for 6 years. Got the highest score in my career field but still have to wait a year to sew on. For those that are gonna hate, study harder next time. One of my biggest beefs with the AF is how much complacency is rewarded.
