Appreciate the help.
Were you able to have a Delta pilot submit an internal recommendation? If your application is competitive (looks like it may be from your posts) then that will accelerate the process significantly since it will guarantee that your app will be scored. Many times, getting your application looked at and scored is more than half the battle.

I have several friends working there who offered to submit one on my behalf...was thinking I would wait to ask for one as you can only do one/year and I just submitted.

Quite low time, I thought Delta required at least 2500tt, but I could be wrong. Your military time will definitely help along with your master's and CP work. It's still a crap shoot on a timeline though. Good luck!

It's definitely not 2500. Lot of guys hired with well less than 2500. Pretty sure it's 1500 for now.

I had less than 2500. Only single seater I have flown is a Cessna 188.

1500 is the published min. TONS of mil folks hired closer to 1500 than 2500, especially fighter background...

If you want your app scored you need to get them to submit one. Only one needs to e-mail pilot selection, but if they all will give you letters of recommendation in airline apps that is great.
