    Hey everyone. I recently applied for the upcoming DCE panel in April. I figured I would start a thread for any information and updates. Good luck to everyone that applied!

    My names in the hat, hopefully third times the charm, I'm currently on the alternate list for the last DCE panel.

    Has anyone heard when we will hear back? The Panel was April 15th, and referencing the most recent "April 15 DCA" thread, we should hear back on the first week of July?

    I'm also applying OCS as well. I though it best to submit for multiple, viable options.

    They moved this panel forward, usually its 7-8 weeks before unofficial results are released so my best guess is the first or second week of June.

    Hello Everyone,

    @RealQuick; They moved the panel forward? So it didn’t meet on April 15th. My Recruiter said we should have the unofficial results any day now.

    No the panel convened on April 15th but the panels are usually later like may or June if I remember correctly. I would still say 7-8 weeks for results but you never know.

    Also to add. 

    I submitted a package for the December 3, 2018 MARGRAD panel and I got official news that I was an alternate about 2 months later. I'm anticipating the results to be out sometime in June

    Hi Everyone!

    Stationed Sector Guam, I applied DCE for this panel. When I submitted my package my recruiter said not to expect any word from the panel until after May 15th. ALLCGRECRUITING message board just put out their PY20 Panel dates on May 20th; from what I can see panel selection results are usually posted after this message. I suspect word should be passed any day now. After talking with the previous DCE selects communication is terrible throughout the whole process, typical hurry up and wait.

    Best of luck to everyone!

    Yes from what I read in the forum for the Sept 10th 2018 panel, the unofficial list was out on Oct 16th. So hopefully we wouldn’t have to wait till July.

    Last year's april board was during a changeout in the Commandant of the USCG billet. The selection board also didn't meet until 23April.

    Hello all, been lurking on here a few days now. Figured I'd make an account since I got the call from my recruiter. Selected Primary! Side Note: Does anyone know if the OJAK will ever be updated again?

    Best of luck to everyone else still waiting!

    Somewhat good news as well for me... selected as 4th alternate. Waiting to see if they choose the alternates or if I'm selected primary for OCS. Congratulations to everyone as primary!

    No idea, my recruiter has been very tight lipped. He wouldn't even tell me what number I was on the primary list even though it doesn't really matter. Not that I'm upset at all, he's just doing his duty. Official list should be out shortly though so I suppose we will just have to keep being patient.

    They don't publish or release primary rankings. Don't know, but I don't think recruiters get that either. It's just an alphabetical list when it's released.

    I hope they make all the alternates. The list before last they went to #8 alternate out of 12... fingers crossed. The previous list I believe they only took 1 alternate but that was while the government was shutdown so I am not sure if we should consider those statistics. If five people from the primary list can just not sign their letters that would be great

    8 deep is pretty solid. I sure hope it goes like that for this one.

    I'm just staying optimistic and keeping my fingers crossed. Going 8 deep on the list before last is a morale-booster! I hope it goes the same way for this list.

    From the looks of it about a month after the official list came out is when they started to notify alternates. My fingers are crossed for avoiding another government shutdown

    I haven't received anything, yet. It's been almost a month since the message was released, so maybe soon. My optimism is really high right now, so I hope that's a sign!

    I have been very optimistic lately and last watch I scrolled through the previous DCE alternates. At first I thought they only took 1 alternate BUT since they started DCO school this moth I was able to look through global and see who made ENS. They ended up taking 5 alternates. Hopefully, they take all of us on this go around. I hate the waiting game.

    I've got no idea. They can go up to our class date, so you never know. We all should have received the selection e-mail already designating you as a primary or alternate.

    I am an alternate on the DCE list and have not received an email yet. Maybe they only got out half of them before the holiday. If they are in today I am sure the remainder of us will receive it before close of business. I am about to submit my application for the next panel, I hope it is all for nothing. I am worshiping to the OPM gods that they just take all of us.

    I am an alternate and I received my letter on Wednesday. I was excited to see it! I've already freshened my package and added a few more certificates for my next submission. Hopefully they do choose all of us alternates, but we shall see!

    When I saw the email, it sounded like I had been chosen from the alternate list but the letter just said I was an alternate. My recruiter called me and said I had been selected and then started reading the letter and was like “oh....wait a minute” LoL!! Classic. Are you guys at work today?

    Yeah.. I double checked. So, did the letter say you were selected as an alternate or that you are going to DCO school?

    I have been trying to look for my email, nothing. Is there anyone else on the primary/ alternate list that did not receive correspondence yet? Maybe they just didn't get to all of us, hopefully Monday it shows up. Can someone post their reply by date? I know these letters are time sensitive.

    The letter that was attached was dated June 26th. It just says I was selected as an alternate, that DCE was very competitive, and that if offered a primary selection I would be an ensign. The actual email verbiage is what confused me because it says I was selected as an alternate from the panel making me initially think I was selected. If not for the letter I would have thought I was. My assumption is there was a misuse of words there as my recruiter seemed to think so as well. I actually worked with the civilian sending out the DCO emails while I was in recruiting and have a strong suspicion he just messed up the wording. LoL!! This wait is worse than SWE cuts.

    I'm an alternate for the DCSS program and a MARGRAD Primary. I only received an email regarding my DCSS alternate position on the 3rd, but I have not yet received an email about my MARGRAD selection. Anyone having the same issues?

    Not for me. I'm the same way. I'm a dcss alternate and a margrad primary. They sent me my letter of intent and the selection letter on the 3rd. I would reach out to your recruiter because they wanted those letters signed back by the same day they started sending them out.

    Maybe you have the same issue as me. I contacted my recruiter and it turns out that my recruiter gotten my acceptance email, but my actual email address was wrong. Therefore, I never received my acceptance letter until today.

    Anyone else notice the "By July 3, 2019, please email a copy of your letter of intent"
    I'm assuming this is a typo as the majority of us got our letters on July 3, 2019.

    I see that they sent letters out last week to a lot of alternates, all from various programs. I know we may be considered up until the DCO school date but realistically are they done identifying who is going to DCO school for this panel?

    So, I got bored and looked back at last years April DCE forums and their alternates recieved work Aug 15th of their selection. Maybe we will recieve some good news in the next two weeks, fingers crossed.

    I am number 5 alternate and my recruiter says the SMO (Senior Medical Officer) requests my medical waiver and documents from my medical record for my previous eye surgery. This was not required when I applied so this has me thnking they may be looking at me for selection? Maybe I am reading into this too much but why else would the SMO be interested in this, why waist your time? I am the last alternate so, has any other DCE alternates been contacted to provide CGRC with more information? If it is what I think it is then.... I won't say it, lol.

    SeanMM,

    I have also been contacted about this as well, except mine is HIV results and Optometry manifest results. I won't say it either, but I'm pumped!

    AirRemy,

    That doesn't mean it's necessarily a bad thing that you haven't been contacted. Maybe they have all required information from you, and needed additional information from myself and SeanMM? Let's just keep our fingers crossed for all of the remaining DCE alternates.

    I haven't heard anything either. I did make primary OCS. I can still choose DCE only if I haven't signed the letter of intent for OCS. I am certainly not complaining about OCS. Maybe it's the option I'm meant to take? Still keeping a lookout, though.

    Did you end up taking the OCS selection? I believe our DCE list gets replaced in October.

    Not yet. I have until 23SEP19. I'm waiting to see if something shakes loose with our alternate selection. I asked my recruiter if I should wait and he said it's fine to wait since I have until the aforementioned date.

    Nice, I was going to say go for the guarantee, but if they are going to let you wait, wait. 5 weeks is a hell of a lot better than 17.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the next DCO panel meet on 16SEP19? I don't have the CGRC message in front of me. Thanks!

    Also, I'm assuming there aren't any updates from us DCE alternates?

    The silence on this forum is killing me.

    You are correct. The panel start date is 16 SEP 19. The interesting thing is it lists two commissioning months and two DCO school dates; Commission: Apr/Jul 20 DCO School: May/Aug 20. So, I guess they plan on two DCO schools going on, back to back. I assume they will need to accept double the applicants in order to fill the DCO schools. I am alternate #5 (the last one) and I am also curious if any other altnerates recieved any updates with the April panel. I beleive the current list remains active until they sign off on the Sep 19 panel list. I find it odd that not many alternates have recieved corispondence, that window is closing. About a month ago my recruiter needed more medical information from me for the April panel and that was odd two. Hopefully someone gets an email soon.

    I haven't had any correspondence. I spoke with my recruiter and there weren't any updates. I accepted the OCS for January. I also asked about the upcoming DCO results, and if I were to be a primary candidate could I switch. He said we'll go down that road when the results come out. We'll see though. Still, best of luck to all alternates and in this September panel.

    Jarrett_r747, may ask what DCE program you applied for? Depending on program, OSC my give you more options for dual career path and competitiveness for promotion boards... especially for O4 and higher.

    Received an email from the AO today with billets. She also gave an 01OCT19 deadline for submission (at the latest). Finally some movement, I reckon things are going to ratchet up a bit from this point on.

    I don’t really know so ill refrain from posting the actual excel file. I have a feeling the billets we are asked to choose from may be unique to the person or background. But most of the billets are in Virginia as I expected due to my background. By specialty it was 2 cyber, 9 C4IT/C5I, 2 civil engineer, 2 naval engineer and 1 acquisition. My degree is in cyber so I’m not too thrilled about the list but it isn’t horrible and there are a few jobs I’d love to have. The actual jobs are project lead/manager type of positions from what I gather. I would be really happy with any of my first 4 choices because I feel I’m well suited for them.

    Nope. I have an idea what I want but wanna order all the others smartly. I’m going to try to contact the units to see what I may be doing. What’s your degree in? Or what do you want?

    If you have questions on C5I/Cyber billets, feel free to reachout to me on skype (CDR D. Cruz)... I can you give you me 2 cents on possible pros/cons. As a DCE, I have been lucky to navigate the C5I career track as a straight C5I officer.

    Yep, I submitted mine pretty quickly. My degree is in Information Technology but i'm not letting that limit my selection order. I would be okay with any of the billets minus the west coast, I am hoping my number 1 is unpopular though ha ha.

    Ha Ha, Yea I feel like most people will have Baltimore towards the end of their list. Where are you stationed currently? The CA Job sounded fun but I cant do it geographically.
