    Hey Everyone...I was wondering if there was anyone out there that is awaiting the selection board results for November...It's been quite the process of attempting to apply and have everything submitted properly. Wondering if anyone else is sitting here playing the "waiting game" or if anyone has heard anything about being selected, number of applicants, number of openings....Hope to hear from some people...

    hey wvu1224,

    I originally had sent my packet to novembers board but there were so many applicants for this board that they randomly took a bunch and sent them back to be resent for january boards and my was one of them. my recruiter said that there were 80 slots and that included med/surg, ER, etc. Good luck to you though on getting selected this month. the estimated release date is november 19th but they are never on time. dont be surprised if you have to wait an extra week or so before they call you. I am telling you all this from experience from the last boards I applied for ealier this past year. Let me know if you have any questions. talk to you soon.

    Don't worry too much if you don't hear back when you expect. I applied in October 2009 with the recruiter thinking I would go to COT in January 2010. I had expected an answer in November of 2009. I heard nothing. Nothing! I about went nuts with frustration. I finally heard in March of 2010, commissioned in April, COT in May. So take no news as good news. The process is really long and slow. It took me 11 months to get in - when I showed up the first day with most of the necessary papers, no waivers, no problems. The wait is just to get you prepared for the never ending paperwork battle in the military.

    I am also waiting to hear back, I suppose I should be getting use to the waiting game. If the estimated release date for results are correct, then we should be hearing back in about a week.
    Good luck everyone.

    Just a heads up from someone who also recently went through the waiting game:

    Just because the board has met on a certain day means the board was SCHEDULED to meet. If someone on the board got sick and couldn't make it, the board may have been rescheduled (happened to me). And once the board meets, those who are selected are sent to another department that takes the needs of the AF and the wish list of the applicants and tries to match them to the best of their abilities. This process can take another 1-2 weeks. My board met in the first week of March and I heard nothing until the end of April/May. This is unfortunately normal. I didn't even commission until August 1 for COT on Aug 26th.

    Just thought I'd fill you guys in on the process that may not have been fully explained. I know it wasn't for me and I was extremely frustrated at one point until my recruiters Flight Commander explained it.

    Good luck!

    Wow...definitely glad you gave me that little heads up...I'm guessing you never heard a thing during the entire process too did you? Especially factoring in the holidays...I truly hope this isn't the case of it taking a few more months with no direction!!!!
