    Were you going the NTP route? I'm shocked you weren't selected being prior service and all. I'm prior Air Force 4 yrs active and 2 years reserve. I heard they run through the alternate list pretty quick though so there is still hope. A friend of mine was #18 alternate and she ended up going so you have a good shot.

    I was going the NTP route because my recruiter told me that if I didn't get selected for this board that I could apply for a FQ position once that board comes around. I am still very hopeful that my number gets called up (not wishing anyone else any harm) and I guess we will wait to see what happens.. .

    I AM SO HAPPY TO HAVE AN ANSWER more than anything to tell you the truth. I am happy for this message board, it's nice to see how others are doing and I am happy for all selected, it's an AWESOME opportunity without a doubt as you know...

    Thank you for the congrats, it means alot! I hunted my recruiter down, he probably thinks I'm a nut job. He didn't even know the list was up until I asked.

    Dreaming1007.. Wow!! That is an awesome news!! Congratulations I am soo anxious and nervous.. I am keeping my fingers crossed and hope that we all get some great news tomorrow.

    Military_RN_Hopeful.. I am also shocked that you were not selected. Perhaps they may offer you a FQ spot instead.

    My recruiter is going to get back to me tomorrow. I texted him after he left his office. I've already had 3 panic attacks. I need to know the answer! I'll be relieved to know if I am military or not

    I also just got notified that I was made as an alternate. What a bummer My number is quite high, so I guess I have to get that 6 months experience and re-apply for the FQ. Good Luck to all who are still waiting.

    I was an alternate last year and reapplied this year and made it as select...don't lose hope!
