I've heard the "physical fitness, road marching with heavy equipment and the time management" piece. Honestly, I am not too worried about that department. People also say study up on land nav because it gets a lot of people, yet I was told by current WOs that it is a self correcting course.. how do you fail that?

I guess what I am asking is what else should I expect at Warrant School?

I believe I'm too far removed to provide accurate feedback on the current course. I would say expect to be treated like a private. Understand that there is a finite amount of time that you will be there and there is a goal at the end. From every experience you go through there is good and bad everywhere, so learn and take away from the course what you want and discard the rest. I've seen some people quit, as they are thinking in the moment and not the future of their Army career. Go to the school, lead and be led, and then be welcomed to the best groups of brothers and sisters the Army has. Best military decision I ever made.

Take your time on the DL portion. If you fail, it counts as a failure when you get to Fort Rucker.

Remember, that the firehose of training and education you will receive is a final "interview." Enjoy your time, it will go quickly.

Thank you for the replies, gentlemen. I'll definitely ensure that I am ready before I get there. I believe I am now, but I can only get better.

Definitely take your time on the DL. I scored a 96 and an 88 on the 2 DL exams. At the end of WOCS, for the 5 exams, I had an average of 93.4. I made the Commandant's List, but would have been Honor Grad or DHG if I had scored higher on that second exam. The HG had the same academic average as I did, but his PT average was a 100 and mine was a 91.

Expect to lose 6 weeks that you can never get back. Half way through, I realized that these classes were all the same classes I'd gotten in PLDC. Essentially, it was a 6-week hazing session, made tolerable only because I knew I'd be going to Flight School when it was over.

Totally agree. As a walking warrant, this is the last chance the army has to mess with you. As an aviator, this is the gateway to a flight job. Either outcome is well worth 6 weeks of anything. Keep that mentality when you get to SERE, pilots, and you'll do just fine.

Gentlemen, thank you for the replies. I fully expected never getting these weeks back. Drill Sergeant school was the same way. Flight school will definitely keep me going. Is and always has been a dream of mine.

Academically, I didn't think it was that bad. I enjoyed the history classes immensely. On a personal level, the hardest part was learning to live with 100 other people again.
