I understand how having a negative in your record can be disheartening. I had a NJP that was at 4 years and 10 months when I was selected. My advancement was put on hold because of it too. Having negatives in your record makes it hard, but it's all about what you do afterwards. You are at a disadvantage to those that don't have any, but it's not out of the realm of possibility. It just matters who is sitting the board and what those folks that you are going up against have done. Good luck!

Thank you Chief! The failure was me coming off of a foot surgery, and that was documented in my eval, so maybe that will help! Then I went on to become the Command CFL. I HATE the zero defect Navy mentality. Its not realistic. I think we are getting away from it but there are people who believe that. I have been told it is a 5 year wait when you get a PRT failure and I hope that I can prove them wrong. 

 No matter what, I will take it and move on. I will keep my head up and working hard, not for the rank but for my own pride in my work.

When do you'll think AD will release the results. I am voting 1 August to commands and 2 August NAVADMIN!

BUPERS is still running strong, so doubt today is the day :rolleyes:

 

On the down side however, I met with the CMC for C3F and he looked over my package and evals...and he didn't paint a rosy picture. They place a HIGH emphasis on your triat scores vs the commanders avg and most of my evals (almost all MP and EP) were at or below the avg. I had an EP that was below the avg and he said that is a real red flag to the board...so I guess better luck for me next year. He DID explain the importance of fighting for your score to be above the avg, which I never really paid attention to in the past. Not a bad discussion, but I will start looking at next year, especially with the quotas being so bad this year...

i was explained this about 4 years ago.. and I always fight for that now. even a P or MP eval should be above avg if you can manage that really says a lot to the board, the mess and CO can tell the board a lot just by some key words in the write up and the summary avg. Its a weird system but once you understand it even what looks like a EP awesome eval can show a board that they are not ready.

what was your trait average vs r/s average for the past five years? I'm curious because your evals were MP and up? Did you not meet or exceed the reporting seniors average amongst your peers?

I'm curious to know how the board sees or grades when it comes to individual summary averages to r/s cumulative averages. I understand they look at the past 5 years (and longer if need be), but to get over that hump and hopefully get that S, do you have to be above or at r/s avg 5 years straight or can you be above or at r/s avg 3 out of the 5 years?  I've always been curious.  For instance:

  1. 2013 - at r/s
  2. 2014 - above r/s (transfer)
  3. 2014 - below r/s (welcome aboard p)
  4. 2015 - above r/s
  5. 2016 - above r/s

Yay or nay?

I think not having a rosy picture is sometimes good. I know people always post to stay positive, however realism is key.  It can be painful when we think this is it I'm there. But in either case good luck   .  

 

No matter what your rank is you cannot stop improving yourself. A lot of "leaders" do and they come off as hypocrites.  I try and learn something everyday whether professionally or personally.

  1.         (IND SUM)              (R/S SUM)
  2. 2010 -   3.43                       3.41                  "MP"
  3. 2011 -   3.71                       3.92                  "MP"
  4. 2012 -   4.14                       4.15                  "EP"
  5. 2013 -   2.57                       3.88                  "SP"
  6. 2014 -   3.14                       3.31                  "MP"
  7. 2015 -   3.43                       3.35                  "MP"
  8. 2016 -   4.14                       3.98                  "EP"

The bolded ones are below the average, EVEN the EP was under the average, which the CMC is not good, even though an EP.

Most of the time they protect the CO summary and the write up should read and tell why. My last eval was a 5 month P but read like an EP and my trait score was lowest I've had  cause CO summary was low  (3.65).

In your 2012 eval, your 4.14 to 4.15 shouldn't hurt, right? To me that would be pretty much at r/s avg.

That's about all you can do. I did the same and like I said, I got selected before the 5 year mark. I just had to go through the process of getting my advancement released. That was a good learning process right there.  It's not zero defect, it just makes it harder. The cream rises to the top and if it's your year, it's your year.

I am honestly trying not to get my hopes up, I have also already pulled my Bibs for next cycle. I have one , 1of 1 MP which will drop off next year, the only thing else that can be a distacter is my TPA has not moved up nor has it moved down and it has remained the same the last to cycles. However it is still been higher than the CO's average. How much weight does sustain performance factor in? My rate dropped from 19% to 12% this cycle and they are only selecting 10. That being said I have had both encouraging and discouraging remarks when having my package reviewed. So it's anyone's guess ?

I posted this several pages back but now that there are more people on I'd like to ask again.  Looking for honest feedback.

I had a 1 of 1 transfer MP in 2013 but is was above the Reporting Senior’s Cumulative Average.  How bad is this?  And does being above the average really make a difference in a case like this?

SSP doesn't necessarily mean you're at or above average on every eval. What they want to see is upward mobility. Being below average on first eval is normal. You are expected to move above average  after your second or third year onboard.

A 1/1 MP typically known as air gap eval could make the board wonder why your CO chose to not award you the EP. This is career ending in Officer fitrep I am told. Not sure how it's treated with enlisted boards especially since your CO still put you above cumulative average. Mixed message to say the least.

That is how I broke out. Hopefully I have a good chance this year with the 19% we have.

Yeah, it's a bit confusing.  Seems bad though.

I had a good year this year, however I failed a PRT three years ago, so i don't know if that will cancel out this year or not :/ I am hoping it is less of a hit because it was 3 years ago! Anyone make Chief with a PRT failure?

Thats what the board wants to see. They want to see that you DID SOMETHING about it. I also saw later that it was due to an injury and it was noted in your eval--that will answer some questions they may have. You did it right so I wouldn't worry about that one.

Thats wildly confusing for the board. Bad move on the COs part, but may be beneficial to you because it makes them seem wishy-washy. :graphics-3d-smileys-313328:
