    Lack of PT, my MTI was really laid back, and a bucnch of other crap made it pretty easy. The only tough part that is still tough is being away from my wife :(

    Everyone's experience @ BMT is different. The weird thing is that everyone I've talked to says BMT is easy AFTER they've been through it. During BMT can be a different story :rofl:

    ATC???? Fuck, I'm sorry man. Stay on top of it and you'll do great. Don't forget that they'll wash your ass out even after tech school. So if you make it through tech school, that's a huge accomplishment, but don't relax.

    30% wash out rate in school and 30% in field, I think its the highest in the air force but I may be mistaken :eek3:

    True story. While I was an MP, we would get aguments from all the units on base who would stay with us for 3 months at a time standing posts and what not. I can recall on more than one occassion getting guys from ATC that when they were through working with us, they would go back and have a test back at ATC, if they failed it, they got kicked out and sent to do some dumb job.

    Don't believe that for a second. I'm not giving you a license to slack here, but my wife is AF ATC, and if she had her way, she would have washed out several noobs already. Unfortunately, some of the SNCOs take this whole "Kinder Gentler Air Force" bullshit to mean that we can't kick people out for sucking at their job, so the shitbags who couldn't separate a C-130 and an A-10 in 500 miles of open airspace are still in, screwing shit up.

    Just to blow everybody's minds, I used to work with a guy who was an Arabic linguist, who cross trained into ATC. Talk about a man who likes to be tortured.
