New OTS selection board results announced

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) --

A total of 211 men and women from across America have earned an opportunity to become Air Force leaders following their selection for an officer's commission, officials here announced Sept. 20.

Air Force Recruiting Service officials considered 542 applications as part of the Officer Training School Rated Selection Board 13OT04. With the board’s selection rate of 38.93 percent, 211 applicants were selected to serve as U.S. Air Force officers. Of the 211 selected, 35 enlisted members earned the chance to attend OTS and trade their stripes for gold bars as second lieutenants.

As part of the selection process, board members reviewed both objective and subjective factors. Objectively, the board considered 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 commanders' recommendations are also evaluated.

Three Air Force colonels review every application. The selection process is similar to an Air Force officer promotion board. No single factor leads to an individual's selection or non-selection, according to OTS selection officials.

People selected can expect to attend Basic Officer Training at Maxwell Air Force Base, Ala., in 2014.

For more information concerning OTS and the application process, active-duty members should contact their local education office; civilians should contact the nearest Air Force recruiter.
