    SNCO Academy (SNCOA) Awards Program and the "eye test"

    A co-worker recently returned the SNCOA and was telling us about the "eye test" that is used at the academy for their awards program. They said that MFRs are given at the end of the course to those folks (20% of class) perceived as "not looking professional" in their uniforms. You can still receive an "excellent" on your PT test but if you don't pass this "eye test" you are removed from consideration from any awards.

    Has anyone recently attended the SNCOA or ever heard of this occurring at any other PME schools?

    ...and no nerds!

    Never saw an eye test. When I went to NCO leadership school years ago, the Chief made a big deal about how the awards "aint gonna go to no cerebrals just cuz they ace the tests"...but that they were gonna go to the dudes who shouted and screamed at volleyball and marching and made up study sheets to help everyone, etc.

    I heard about a guy a few years ago who got kicked out of NCOA for cheating. Everyday they would line up in formation and someone would randomly be picked to recite the Airman's creed. He taped a copy of the creed to the back of the person in front of him. He ended up getting caught and kicked out for being too lazy to memorize a stupid creed.
