Hello Everyone, So I'm currently nearing the end of my second semester of nursing school with three more semesters to go. I will be graduating in May 2013. I've talked to my local Air Force health professions recruiter and... Read More

    Have you already gone to MEPS? If not, it was pretty laid back down here in SLC. Mainly a lot of hurry up and wait with filling out a lot of forms. I wish you all the best of luck and I imagine we'll see each others posts on here every now and then!
    I haven't been to MEPS yet, but will be going some time this month. There is a MEPS in Boise, so that's the one I'm going to (I'm sure it is a lot smaller than the one in SLC). I'm looking forward to the hurry up and wait experience. lol

    Hey SLC2012 and CVA311,

    I was just curious if your recruiters told you when you would find out results if you were accepted for commissioning. I, too, have sent in my packet for application to the NTP for this July meeting. My recruiter said I'd hear back sometime around late August...but I didn't know if any of you had a specific date of when we find out?

    Thanks!

    Hi HBaum, welcome to the boards!! I also applied for the NTP this July and was told by my recruiter that August 10th is supposed to be the release date for the results of the board...although I've heard that it is common not to hear anything for a couple of weeks after the "release date." So, it could really be the end of August or beginning of September before we hear anything.

    How many of you applied for Med/Surg and how many for OB? I talked to my recruiter and she said there are going to be about 40 chosen for Med/Surg and only 10 or so for OB for next year's NTP program! Eeeek!

    Med surg. Don't be too concerned about the numbers your recruiter gave you...if you read back through all the posts in this and the other thread you'll see that we've all been hearing different numbers. My recruiter won't even venture a guess because she says the number of slots isn't made public prior to the board...so who knows where the other recruiters are getting their numbers. Could be just estimates based on their experience with past boards...could be just guesses...or maybe they have access to info my recruiter doesn't. Who knows

    Did med-surg as well. I second what LN75 said about the numbers. Really is hard to go with any of the numbers we're hearing. I sure like to see the higher estimates though. I've also see that for the most part you'll get your info on when you go to COT with when you get all the acceptance information. The days just keep dragging by..........and dragging.

    Seriously...I'm trying to stay super busy this summer until I head back to school at the end of August...but I'm ready to find out now! I have another thread going, and heard the board meets around the 25th of this month or something..so it might be late August/early september that we hear more waiting! Ughhhh

    I'm also awaiting the results for this round. I heard we shall find out the end of August/ early September. The wait is a killer. I wonder if we are not selected for this round, do we have to do the whole application process again or does out recruiter just resubmit what we have? Getting the LORs are a pain and some people do not like taking time out of their lives to write up a quick LOR. It would suck to have to re ask for our friends, co workers, and professors to write another one.

    Don't quote me for truth on this, but I heard they sometimes make notes on people's application packets about what they could do better in future applications. If your LOR's are great they could still be used but say they are generalized and unspecific they might make a note of it and that is when you would get someone to write a new one. I doubt you would need to write a new one every time you applied because if that person said all the great things they know about you then what else would they write?
    Also if you got a LOR from someone who was high up (say in work/military/government) such as a senator, CEO or a high ranking military official they usually question them and if the person really doesn't know you personally they will disregard that LOR. Again, don't take this as absolute truth but just something I heard from my recruiter =]

    I'm sure your LOR's are amazing though!
