    The board must have secured early because my Master Chief sat the board and she is back at work today.

    I think that whole week is fair game. Earliest I see it happening is triad notification on that Tuesday the 31st. I'm just assuming next weekend is going to be the last free weekend for many of us.

    Same here! I actually had a Chief say something kind of inexpected to me in front of all the other Chief’s at a CPO365 fundraiser. He said “there’s people I hope make it so I can mess with them, and there is ones I want to see make it because they deserve it, and you deserve it.” Meant a lot. So here’s to this year being the one! Oh, and my wife just surprised me and told me we are expecting our fourth child! All the anxiety haha!

    Every year there are people that make you wonder how it happened. Like yall said there is no game genie cheat code that can get you insta selected. As bad as it sounds I would like someone to be FLTMPSing me this year to figure out how I made it lol

    I'm just gonna keep it real, In the beginning I was excited, but now i'm just going to keep in real with myself. I look at what I have done and what I'm doing now and know that I working as a CPO, but a few dark clouds in my past might keep me from them anchors for a little while longer. Command collaterals, junior sailors advancing, CPO 365/FCPO involvement, PME/SJPME/USMAPS, and strong evals, I have all of that. I'm just going to continue to press on and when my name is called, I'll wear them anchors proudly.

    That’s true, my last command 2 of the 3 that made it had MP’s, but strong write ups..

    Little off topic, but last year I was invited to right hand man night at the Chiefs club. Had a Chief say he knew who I was, and I joked saying I was in the smoke pit a lot. He said no that's not it. Good way to mess with your head a Chief from another command saying he's heard about you.

    I’m going with 30th as the earliest which would the beginning of the 6 weeks of training. No later than then the 3rd of August. I’m assuming pinning would be on the 14th of September since the 16th is a Sunday.

    It would be a great gift to me from the Navy for my 19 year anniversary and birthday! I have given more than half my life to the Navy, can I get a return on that before they tell me to go home? LOL

    Do not take this as gospel, but I'm hearing Wednesday, 01 August. Pinning on 14 September.

    The suspense is building...........times up, let’s do this. Leeeeerrrrroooooyyyyyy Jjjjjeennnnnnkkkiiinnnsss! In all seriousness, it would be awesome to hear everyone get the S. But the real gem is the knowledge being passed around in this thread. Never alone in this💪🏽

    And the rumors start churning! I would love to have results out early. Looking at a calendar, the 31st or the 7th are the two possible dates. Looking at board adjournment dates from past years , I would guess the 31st. Of course that is just me and a crystal ball. I am already running a bit. Trying to start my legs moving just in case. This is a tough waiting game. 4th time up, but first time I actually have somewhat of a chance to make it based on checking the blocks! So talking to an EMNCM last year after the board, they are looking for the performance, but that doesn’t necessarily mean EP. I have met non EP nukes who made chief. Above the group average is the important part. Having at least 12 months LPO (prototype counts) and having at least 12 months EWS were 2 of the bigger points. After that, PPME, JPME, and any other college degrees. Those are things that are looked for. Finally, you gotta have the leadership, management, and technical aptitude. Your eval write ups speak to those. You have to have concrete data proving you did things. No fluff that says nothing. And show you are taking care of your sailors and working to have an impact to your command. Ship, shipmate, self. From everything I have read and seen, that is what gets you noticed in the board. These are all Chiefs and above sitting the board, and not necessarily in your rate. Hope that helps!

    Definitely agree with the above statement! I’m no expert or Chief just awaiting to get the “S” as you all are but from Khaki leadership not everyone who makes Chief is off of EP. I would think somewhere maybe in their career you would have a good EP eval but I seen the #1 MP make Chief and one of my Senior Chiefs said he made chief without any EP evals just had good write ups. So I agree sustained superior performance and good write ups. Something that states you are performing at EP level where it may not be enough EPs to pass around but still show you are doing your job and beyond with supporting your Sailors.

    What my Chiefs have engraved into my brain was sustained superior performance! Not necessarily an EP but if you are above avg in comparison of your peers and above CO's avg.

    I am in the same boat. This is my 9th time up for chief.

    I know the feeling! My command has a Phase II burger burn the Chief's mess is doing here. So you can tell it is right around the corner!

    I heard the 20th, but not 100% on that date.

    Hate/Love this time of the year. I always go through my OMPF looking for mistakes, wondering what would disqualify me from being selected. I wish they would give you a general reason on why you were not selected. They could just say something general like record, evals, or something like that. Not the specific reason but just a generalized one. People could think their record is good to go, but it might just be something they are not catching. something small. Well good luck to all. I havent heard anything about the board adjouring early, so it looks like competition might be tight this year.

    Good Luck to all. New to the forum but have been lurking since last year.

    Yes it is about that time! My command Season Calendar Festivities were out over a week ago to all Chiefs, and oh did the motivation and excitement travel through their soul 😂 ! Of course I can’t see the calendar or know any details but I think AUG 1st will be the day. Either way that week and if it is that Friday don’t look forward to that weekend off!!! Good Luck to you all let’s stay motivated and positive through everything.

    The way I understand it is whatever day the results drop, is the day the fun begins. You don't get a free weekend until after the pinning. But I could be wrong. I guess only way to find out is if I get selected.

    So I hit 19 years tomorrow. I've already accepted that I either make it or I don't. My retirement package is already filled out in NSIPS, I'm just waiting to see if I need to click submit or not. I guess I've been at this for too long to let it frustrate me.
