My stats are about 5k TT and 2k TPIC, ready to leave the RJ world and progress.
With those stats you are likely qualified for varsity level if you have a degree and no other show stoppers on your record. The reasons to wait are well documented on this thread.

Unfortunately "progress" and Atlas don't belong in the same sentence. I lost count of how many F/O's I've flown with who regret leaving their RJ Capt. spot to come sit right seat for less money, more work, and twice the headaches.

No degree(In progress) and not a DUI but a significant driving record event(read arrest for speeding).

Other than money, flying another type will feel like progression, maybe I am naive for thinking that way but multiple type ratings do increase your points on certain apps.

Also applied to Kalitta and UPS. Holding my breath...

I've now lost nearly 200k in wages since coming to AAWW- it's frustrating and I am somewhat regretful
