Just finished Army BCT (Ft. Benning) heading to Warrant Officer Candidate School in August. What has changed in the WOCS curriculum this year? What are the major points of failure?

Just be an adult. Remember you were a Senior NCO before you went, so act like it. I came from being a Drill Sergeant and Senior NCO to being the Stands Officer and the class leader. I had people tell me I was treating them like a “Private.” No, I am just telling you what you need to do to succeed and “play the game. You were an E-7 last week. Act like it.”

Best of luck. Work on getting along with your classmates, and those you can't, just be civil and keep your distance. Remember you're only there for a month.

The biggest curriculum change that has happened recently happened last year. There is no longer a Phase 1. So regardless of PME history, it's a 5 week course. Other than that, just be professional and stay motivated, and you'll do fine. Good luck!

CW2 (Join to see) Oh Wow!, so how the process now looks like from selection notification to graduation/appointment to W01? Do people now just get selected and then wait to report to WOCS without having to do anything else?

SFC(P) Louis Melendez - There's just no more Phase 1, so the folks who get selected don't have to do the DL course or the 7 week course anymore. Everyone gets funneled through the 5 week version. After selection, you will get enrolled into blackboard, and you still have to maintain correspondence with the TAC Officers and class mates to hash things out like duty assignment, coin, T shirt etc. before the report date. After that, report to WOCS and do your thing.
