    Getting Out

    Dude don't forget going to school... you do it right, you can work on your degree while making some $ through the Post 9/11 GI bill till you figure out ATC jobs. Good luck

    Work?

    About your only option is to apply to one of the contracts to teach ATC at the Army schoolhouse. Pretty much all contract companies will smack you down. TAIS, FF isn't actual ATC experience

    2013 VRA Eligibility

    I'd be so pissed if that were true. That's horse shit to those that have actually gone down range or spent time on active duty. I called HR to verify, time spent in tech school and BCT DO NOT COUNT.

    Well Looks Like Time for Plan B

    Finishing up ROTC and commission into AD Army. My grades should be good enough to start flight school.. This whole process was/is a joke. Keep applying in the mean time but who knows what the future holds

    After Not Being Selected.

    Another option is to become an officer in the AF doing ATC. Decent pay, and you'd be in charge of airfield ops. Decent back up plan if ATC doesn't pan out
