I made the Commandant's list at WOCS so it is on your studying techniques regardless on the format of the tests.

Lack of motivation is a separate issue and that could come from many things.

I remember when I was at PLDC a 11B that failed his second PT test and since it was the sit-up event; he totally had a s**t attitude when he did the run and a uncaring look.

His was sent home with a "lack of motivation" on his 1059 instead of a PT failure. The former being much worse than the latter. It is all about attitude.

I am not concerned to much about the format of the tests. I think that fill in the blank is the truer test of someone's knowledge. Anyone can guess on a multiple choice question and get a 25% chance to get it right.

I didn't even think about how lack of motivation could be applied. I didn't think that it could be for something as simple not sounding off at PT once, but for something more serious. Something more serious, like never sounding off even after having been told and counseled to do so.

Basically the chick got sent home because of falling out of runs during PRT. Trust me if your not a strong runner you might want to start now but if you can run then you have no issues. As far as the test failure the guy failed one of the DL portion test and then when you get to WOCS if you fail once after you have already failed the online part you do at home it counts as 2 test failures!

Agreed. There are many ways to test the understanding of material - some more accurate, some less. What truly matters at the end of the day is whether or not you know and understand the material.

So there's no more "it's the effort that matters"? Good to know. I remember reading that as long as they see you pushing and not giving up - you're good. I guess not anymore.

By the way, what was the longest run in WOCS?

4 miles average. But it was the length of our fun run at the end.

yep 4 miles the longest because of time constraint but if it wasnt for class they would run you into the ground with a flak vest on!

4 miles isn't too bad. After having been in the Army for a minute, long-distance runs don't seem as bad as before.

UPDATE: I got my RFO and am working on getting my orders. Just attended a Levy Brief this morning, but still have a bunch of questions. Hopefully a Relocation Counselor at ACS could help me out, but I thought I'd double tap here as well. Here are the main two for now:

1. Since my dependents never came to my current duty station (long story), the reassignment office said that they cannot put them on my orders and that I'll have to pay travel and HHG transportation out of pocket and will probably lose (or partially lose) certain benefits. Does anyone have any idea which AR, JFTR, ALARACT or whatever applies here?

//I found the answer to second question. JFTR is your best friend Smiler

Thank you.

I was selected for 140E back in March and I'm going to WOCS in October (class 13-001), which is exciting for me. However, I also have heard from one of the guys that just completed school the whole program is starting to change and that they are sending more people home for pt failures, test failures, and lack of motivation, which has me slightly nervous.

Congratulations on being picked up. I understand your concerns about raising the bar in WOCS these days, but hopefully it won't be too bad. All we can do is prepare in advance, stay in touch with each other, and do our best and pull each other through during the school.

Good luck!

Do not stress over rumors and hearsay. If you go there with the same attitude that has gotten you this far in your career and keep it up. You will be fine.

Well I was just selected during the July board. My heart was pounding when I opened the message. Had to take a deep breath. My name was the very last name on the Q-S list. I know they are alphabetical but when you are nearing the end and don't see your name yet, you get worried.

I really hope to make it into an October class, because my basic course starts 9 Dec and the next one doesn't start until Aug 2013 over a year away.
