Can someone help me understand this spreadsheet a little bit better? I’m mostly interested in ZHU, how does it compare to other centers in regards to AG need? I may have missed it on the spreadsheet but I didn’t notice anything that explicitly says “we need X amount of AG” if I go to the academy this year and graduate is ZHU even a possibility?

The PPT is not the same as the Priority Placement List - Enroute. All the staffing lists uses data from the PPT though so they are tied together. But looking at the PPT won't tell you what the academy lists look like. But you can be pretty sure that if ZHU PPT column X Proj % to Target value is higher than the Natl % at the top of column X then it's going to less likely you'll have a shot at ZHU from the academy.

Like Omegahare said, for an academy projection you need to look at the Enroute Placement List

With that being said, your odds are not great. Their first available slot isn't until 282 (roughly ~450-500 people pass enroute per year at the academy). They only have 11 slots in the top 500.

Im a rookie so help me out. Would the Enroute & terminal list be updated each time according to the PPT info that comes out? So for instance Memphis currently doesnt have many slots at the top of the enroute list, but according to new PPT they are a lot lower in staffing % than others, so would the next enroute list update immediately according to that?

Hmm. I am curious about anyone who snagged VGT being off this April NEST?
My buddy who had VGT on his April NEST got PTK, I imagine VGT was filled on the list. The other places on it kinda sucked... but who knows, what is a bad location to somebody is a dream facility for the next.

You know if he ranked VGT higher than PTK on his list?

I am just wondering if that any person from the April NEST snagged VGT officially after 5 people got selected there. Maybe because the April NEST and April NCEPT was on the same day if I am not mistaken?
Yeah, the person I was talking about was in the April NEST, was offered VGT, and is starting there in a week or so.
