I heard from a co-worker who heard from his son's teacher's friend who is a minority works for the FAA that you have a better chance of getting picked up just for being a minority. I did do some research on here, can't really find a for sure answer . Is this true?

I am a minority...took me almost 5 years to get picked up. I got denied, won my appeals. Now I am about to get a class date finally! So the answer is no....hahaha. I am not bias at all.

Yes it will help. Via previous route (CTI) it didn't matter, via OTS it will matter. People can't deny on here that probably 75% of CTI students are white males. When ZME brought in a lot of OTS hires about 3-4 years ago this number dropped dramatically to maybe 50% white males. The government is probably one of the most diverse employers you can get out there.
