That’s what I heard too. I’m hoping so that people can stop asking me. No pressure though, right?

Wasn't even nervous, but sometimes I wonder if I didn't do well enough lol. I normally cut a 60, but going in there with a 3.8 which comes out to a 110 points with an average FMS of 160 to make board. Just can't cut lower than I say a 53 to make sure I made it.

I concur with your wonder of my own as well. This is my first time up and went in with a 3.9 but have no clue as to the average required multiple over last couple years. But as it’s my first time up, not really nervous either. I’m a cross rate so probably don’t really have a  Janice yet to pick up first time. But I have two good evals as a first so we will see. It is what it is.

With a 3.9 you should make board handily. I’m a crossrate as well, and I’m here to tell you that you’ve got a shot. If you’re fully qualified, that is. Everyone always talks about the mysterious formula for making Chief, but to be honest there isn’t one. Just don’t suck, and know what you need. That’s it. Be solid as a human, and as a professional. And if you DO suck, then try to suck less each day. I know that seems like a huge marginalization of the entire process right? For me, it took 4 tries because professionally, I sucked.  I made board by a lot each time, I had never had anything below an EP, I had my PME/JPME, an impact COM, a bunch of NAMs etc... but I chose to not get CSOOW and I transferred to shore duty before I got it and got N every year. As soon as I got to sea again I got it, and the next cycle I made it. Of course, there are a ton of people that are awesome that never make it because they are at the mercy of numbers though... maybe for them there is a magical formula, or prayer, or chant that you need to know lol. As a CTN, I don’t think that’s you though.

Lol. Been lurking for a few years. Congrats to all that made board. 

I do however have a question. 

I received my air pin. Back in 2009. Got awarded the day before I flew to Afghanistan on a year long IA. Wasn’t until 2012 time frame that I realized that award citation was not uploaded into my Serive record. I tried contacting the command I received the qual from (VQ-2), but they had decommissioned at that point. My original citation was part of some other documents that the ex wife threw away during my IA. It shows on my 2009 Eval, but it’s not in block 44. Only in block 3. I’ve had mixed answers on this, ranging from don’t worry about it, or submitting a letter stating that the document is missing and unable to be had through issuing command. What is your take on this issue. I’ve already got two other warfare devices along with this one.

 

thank you in advance.

Congrats to all those that made board. I as well made board. Now comes the part we have the most impact on. The record review. Making sure all evals are continuous, all awards are in, and everything is up to date as it should be. Good luck to all! Don’t be afraid to reach out to anyone on here or to a chief in your command to check your records and decide if a letter to the board is needed.

So I was done with the test in about 45 minutes, and somehow cut a 76.  So 8th times the charm?
