  2. Army Reserve OBLC (April 2013)
    Hey, didn't see the response. As far as what to bring, just what the packing list states on the AMEDD website. I'm flying in jeans and a t-shirt. You will see people in uniform and they will have...

  5. Army Reserve OBLC (April 2013)
    @Maura - as long as all your stuff is good to go and you have completed Phase 1 online you can schedule a date to go. If you have not started Phase 1, I would suggest starting/finishing that as soon...

  10. 15 JUL 2013 BOLC date
    You might want to pump your brakes a little first. You will need to graduate, take your NCLEX, be approved for commission and then you can begin to look at a BOLC date. This is the Army, you might...

  11. Feb 2013 OBLC Phase 2
    My training NCO said there were still some slots left so make sure they get on it if they are looking to start in Feb. As for Phase 1, it took me about a month of playing around to finish it. I...

  12. How much does GPA matter?
    Not too sure how competitive the AF is, but for the Army it wasn't all that bad. I had a 4.0 but others who came in with me were around 3.0 and got in just the same. If this is really a worry for...

  15. Questions after commissioning
    It took me 2-weeks before my orders came down. You will then need to go to your unit and inprocess there. They will more than likely be no help with getting you your uniforms so be diligent about...

  16. AECP  to BOLC : How long did it take you to get a seat?
    Sounds like you have your bases covered the best you can then. If I were you I would find out who is responsible for getting the OBLC slots and be relentless about getting one. For many people the...

  17. AECP  to BOLC : How long did it take you to get a seat?
    If you are really just looking to make a paycheck and fill the void in your bank account then keep a wide, wide line of fire. Don't listen to that "they don't hire new grads" crap, ********. If...

  21. 66HM5 Question
    Gotcha, so it's more or less what the needs of the unit are. I will ask about the 66T and see where that goes. Did you become an M5 after you joined?

  22. 66HM5 Question

  23. 66HM5 Question
    Oh well that's no fun. I wonder how hard it would be to get into the ER once you are in. Or, what the med/surg units are like, might not be that bad considering the population.
