I am a SFC who is looking to submit a warrant packet for 153A. Currently I’m 2 months away from hitting the 12 year mark for active service. In addition to that, I’m 34 years old. I understand by doing some research that the kind of packet I submit and how my request for waivers are articulated will hold a lot of weight. How much does my military career so far weigh on hrc’s Decision to approve the waivers? A little bit about myself. Currently I’m a Ranger instructor. All of my ncoers are solid, I have 3 deployments all as a leader, I’ve completed all Ncoes required of my rank, ranger qualified, Airborne, Air assault, pathfinder, Rslc, jumpmaster, 131 gt score, and 37 semester hours of college. By no means is my age a factor but I understand the logic behind the afs requirement. Can someone give some guidance on how I should present myself to the board and waiver reviewer(s) so that I have a solid chance of getting picked up. I’m pretty sure I can articulate my desire to become a warrant officer and ability to bring something to the table if given the opportunity. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know how much the waivers effect the boards decision unless it's a health issue that would effect your aviation career. I had two medical waivers and still got selected. It's all about how you present yourself on paper, follow then packet instructions and you should be good to go. Best advice is to make yourself seem like a superstar. It's hard for us to talk about ourselves.
