I posted this on an existing thread but I was late and it is on the second page, so I don't think anyone will see it. The original thread was about someone's husband looking to become an officer in the AF. Many responses informed the OP that it is really hard to get in as an officer right now and that their DH ended up going the enlisted route.
Here's my post:
DH is currently going through the process to become an officer. All these posts saying that getting a commission is nearly impossible is scaring me! What exactly does that mean? So far his recruiter has been great. She's been very responsive. He has submitted his packet along with his transcripts, and letters of recommendations, and takes the AFOQT next week. Would he be getting this far if they weren't looking to take anyone? I'm just trying to figure out what is a realistic expectation here. He is prior enlistment (5 years active in the Marines), looking to be a pilot, and has a 4.0 GPA currently... is any of this helping him move ahead of some others?
If anyone has any insight, I would really appreciate it. I'm getting very worried! Thanks for your help.
Thanks for any info/experience you can provide!!
