Ask them here and I will compile them and answer in a new thread.
How were the physical requirements?
any vision waivers offered? im 20/70 and don't really want eye surgery at the moment
in college + PPL + not prior enlisted + lots of extra curriculars + ~3.2GPA + good PT scores + good AFAST scores = slot?
how long and how difficult is WOCS?
im reallly interested in being a WO because i like choppers the best and i want to be "out there" in the field a lot and get lots of hours. i understand the pay isn't as good as a regular commissioned officer. if i was waivering between commissioned officer or WO, what would be some reasons to go one way or the other?
What is the overall mentality of AWOCS?
How were the academics?
Do they offer any training on general Army information?
What is the contract length?
Do you think AWOs will be let go after the Iraq occupation is over?
What are the facilities like?
Since few of us have any concept of WOCS, can you give us a comparison between Army Basic Training and WOCS?
A brief overview, and a "this is a day in the life of a WOCS Candidate" would be nice also.
Be sure to post pics of the hot chicks in bikinis that populate AWOCS as well.
What are they looking for in an applicant?
I am slowly but surely putting the answers together for your questions. I am getting the regs that pertain and asking other people in to gather as many opinions as possible for everyone.
if i enlisted in the guard first, would it be way harder to get a spot as a warrant officer (active duty, guard, reserves, whatever)?
if i enlisted first, would i have to pick a crappy job that they would let me out of? im pretty smart and would qualify for probably any job...
was it worth it?
So you aren't in at all?
Whats the chance of a 24 year old with a BS in business with a 2.95 gpa getting to become a WO helicopter pilot? I havent taken the AFAST, but Im sure if I prepared I could do well. My guess is that I dont really have much of a chance, from what I've read online, but I'd like to hear some more opinions..
Are you not even in the military at all?
no I'm not
Your chance is 0
ummm according to everyone besides you and recruiters, you dont have to be in the military already to become a warrant officer. isnt it based on your LOR, college credits and GPA, certification in a field (like a pilot license for helo pilot helps) and overall what they think of you as a person? i know for sure that civilians can apply and DO get accepted so his or my chance isnt ZERO
Ok, so I'll give it .1% chance
Quit giving bad information. I know 70+ people that graduated in February alone that prove you wrong. The Army is actively recruiting qualified civilians for the "street to seat" program.
I have almost everything ready to go, I will have answers up by Sunday.
WO expected to deploy to some place sandy for long periods of time?
