I got the call tonight…I’m going to be an F-16 pilot! Thank you so much for your help! Your interview prep was spot on.
Luke O. — F-16 UPT Selectee
Interview went great! Some questions I wasn’t expecting but I think the process helped me think through them a lot, and it helped me convey the points I wanted to get across in the best possible way. I was the #1 pick! Unbelievable. Thank you for all the help!
Kyle E. — F-15 UPT Selectee
I got the slot! I think it’s safe to say that I absolutely couldn’t have done it without BogiDope’s help. It gave me an enormous leg up.
Robert W. — F-16 UPT Selectee
…just officially “accepted” the position… Sounds like an awesome unit and great opportunity!
Thanks again for all of your help.
Looking forward to flying the Eagle…
Chris B. — F-15 Rated Selectee
They called me today and formally offered me the position so what you taught me definitely worked! I greatly appreciate all of your help and advice!
Ivan D. — C-130 UPT Selectee
I am totally in shock that they decided to select me without having a face to face. I could have never done it without your help.
Daniel C. — C-17 UPT Selectee
I’ll be flying the A-10! I can’t wait to get to UPT and get started! Thanks for all your help! The interview prep was invaluable.
Nick C. — A-10 UPT Selectee
Just wanted to let you know that I was hired by the Viper unit… BogiDope played a huge part and the interview prep definitely helped a lot. Thank you again for all your help.
Kevin D. — F-16 UPT Selectee
I owe a lot of that success to the prep I did with you guys. It’s no coincidence that after 7 failed interviews I decided to do the consultation and I was able to nail the 8th interview…over the phone. So, thank you guys! So stoked for the future.
Elliott U. — F-22 UPT Selectee
I just found out that I got hired! Thank you again for all your help. I reviewed all of my notes from our consulting and it was a huge help!
