AECP Army FY 13 Candidate

Posted

I am currently an active duty soldier that is in the process of putting together my AECP packet which is due June 30. There isn't anyone in my unit or that I know that can relate or understand this process. I am looking for anyone that has insight and could answer some specific questions about this process....

Thank you for responding but I have already printed all the guidelines and everything. I am super organized and pretty much know what is expected. I finally talked to the program manager yesterday and got some specifics answered. What it boils down to is that nobody around me one knows what the AECP is and two how to provide any guidance in the process. It is not a packet that you can just throw together. Are you having any issues with it? It would be nice to correspond with someone that is doing the same thing I am and I am still hoping there is someone out there that has been accepted before and willing to share some tips :) good luck

I was accepted for FY12. I can answer some questions you may have. You said you got ahold of the program manager (SFC Carment McDavitt) yesterday. I've been trying to contact her. What contact information did you use to get her?

The same #s but she has been in Germany that's why she wasn't answering phones or emails. She said she will be in the office all this week . Do you have an email so maybe I could ask you some specifics?

Is there anyone in your units HR office that can help. I found their assistance very helpful in my packets assembly for FY12.

I do think the packet guidelines for FY13 are much more helpful than FY12. You are actually given examples for all the memos and essay that are to be included in your packet, some thing that was not provided for my applicant pool.

Feel free to private message me for any info.

So I sent in my packet and I have my figers crossed since August is around the corner. Do you know how many peole are usually accepted? I am very nervous about the acceptance rate. I too have noticed that not too many people know about this program, so I am hoping the odds are in our favor. Do you have all you prereqs done?

I think there were about 40 that were selected for FY12. There were also alternates that could step in if any of those individuals selected failed to complete prerequisites or get accepted into an accredited school. I have no idea how many packets were submitted.

jeckrn, BSN, RN

Specializes in EMT, ER, Homehealth, OR. Has 17 years experience.

I do not know the offical number but talking with one of my techs who apply the number is around 20-25 if his info is right. I also heard that the number was going to be less then last year from some senior officers while attending a school at AMEDD C&S.

I looked on HRC and the Milper message from last year has a list of those that were selected, alternates, and whose packet was not eligable. About half were selected, about 1/4 alternates and the rest were not eligable. So it broke it down to where you will know exactly where you stand.

Here is the message number from last year if you want to check it out 11-242

The board met on the 2nd and 3rd of August. Last year's milper message came out on the 10th, so I am hoping to hear the results this week sometime. If you did submit your packet... what was your GPA, GT, PT, and did you have a conditional or unconditional letter of acceptance?

waiting for 2013 boards results too.

GPA- 3.2, GT-135 and a PT of 270 closing my fingers.

Just wanted to say I also applied, and I recently heard that the board was now being held from the 13-15. Good luck to everyone!

I wouldn't stress about the GT score. When I applied I worried that my GT score was not competive. When I got my job as an army musician the GT was irrelevant, and I blew it off. I got a 115. When I inquired about retaking the test for AECP, I was told that all I needed was a 110. Someone with a higher GT score does not get more points or greater consideration.

GT=115 GPA= science (4.0) overall(3.8) PT=280

I agree about the GT score. Of course I'm only making assumptions here, but I think time in service, letter of intents, and having everything in on time are your biggest worries. I've met two individuals from last years ineligible list. One was passed over because they had more the 9 credits to complete, the other a thyroid condition. Im pretty much in the same boat. GT 120, PT 298, GPA 3.9, conditional letter of acceptance. Good luck all again!
