I was just wondering, not because I need to know if I am on it, but mainkly because there is so much hype about how it is "prepositioned" and you have to wait until the 21st to see it.
But.... it seems that everyone already knows before it is officially released if they made it or not.
I guess I just find it funny and was wondering how widespread the knowledge of the list before it's official release was.

This board is beginning to look like a crock. It's who you know, you'll be promoted based on performance, not potential, if you deployed, you'll at least get looked at. I'm going on 15 years TIS, 4 TIG, have a bachelor's degree (from a university that has a physical campus and is part of a state university system - not knocking the eArmyU guys), ANCOC, been an AIT instructor, been a drill, and currently a platoon sergeant. It's like "SSG WHO?" when it came to my name being put on the list. I know I had ONE not-so-nice NCOER, but I have the ones that show I was a successful (read: I was NEVER under ANY investigation or had my name come across the BN CO's desk in a negative manner) drill sergeant - including winning brigade Drill Sergeant of the Month board, an operations sergeant, and an instructor. But a guy who was in ANCOC with me with almost half my years got picked up. He was a drill, but the thing that put him over the top (in MY mind) was that he had been deployed. Before anyone says crap, I was never under any stop-loss or stop-movement orders even after I reenlisted a month before 9/11 (and my old unit at Campbell ended up deploying about 3-6 months after my report date, in fact stop-loss/movement didn't kick in until April), nor was I denied DS school because I was to be PCSed to a deploying unit. If you want E-7, get deployed. If you're lucky, you'll be able to pin it on. With my luck, it'll be posthumonous.
Just my two cents to start some $#!+
