Air Force announces OTS selections

RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas (AFPN) -- The Air Force is giving 92 enlisted members the chance to trade in their stripes for gold bars after being chosen to attend Officer Training School.

Headquarters Air Force Recruiting Service conducted OTS Selection Board 0207, which met here June 25 to 28. The board considered 654 total applications, selecting 287 for a 41 percent selection rate.

OTS is only one of the avenues the service uses to commission new officers. The Air Force will also send more than 1,000 young men and women to its service academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., and award more than $60 million in ROTC scholarships. In addition, the service continues to need qualified officers, including doctors, dentists, nurses, pharmacists and engineers.

As part of the selection process, board members review both objective and subjective factors. Objectively, the board considers each applicant's academic discipline, grade point average, and Air Force Officer Qualifying Test scores. Subjectively, board members evaluate work experience, accomplishments, adaptability, character, leadership ability, potential for future growth and other recommendations. For active duty enlisted members, performance reports and commander's recommendations are also evaluated.

A minimum of three Air Force colonels reviews every application. The selection process is similar to an Air Force officer promotion board. According to OTS selection officials, no single factor leads to an individual's selection or nonselection.

Individuals selected for OTS can expect class assignment information approximately eight weeks after their physical is certified for commissioning. The OTS boards meet about every six weeks at Headquarters Air Force Recruiting Service. For more information concerning OTS and the application process, active duty members should contact their local education services office; civilians should contact the nearest Air Force recruiter.

A full listing of people selected for OTS is available at the Air Force Recruiting website.
