    Greetings!

    The purpose of this thread is to gather those who applied for the November 2021 DCO Panel.  It's also a location for candidates to provide updates or RUMINT pertaining to the board results release date. 

    Best of luck to all! Hopefully there is more than one slot!

    The DCO precepts should be coming out in the next few weeks. It should give us the numbers of how many candidates their making for each Direct Commission category. My recruiter told me that 50 DCE packets were submitted this cycle, I’m hoping they make the same amount as last cycle. Best of luck to everyone.

    Given how long it took to get results on the last couple of boards, not too confident. However, it would certainly be nice!
    Any chatter from the recruiters?

    This comment is meant to bring this group back to the main page and to see if anyone has heard any updates. This may be the last week to hear news before the upcoming holiday routine. Has there been any updates from your recruiters?

    I’m split between results magically showing up mid holiday weeks, or nothing coming out until January.

    Thanks for checking.. Question where exactly are you checking? Could you post the link? Do you need CAC access to check? Are these the results or the number of applicants that they are accepting?

    1) The official results will be released on the CG Messages page on CGPortal which does require CAC access. This will list all the alternates and primaries for every program that was included on the November 8th panel.

    2) Shortly after official results are released, the precept will be available on CGRCs site. This is the official guidance that was provided to the panel on how to grade applicants, number of primaries and alternates to accept, and who was on the selection panel. It’s kind of useless since it comes out after the official results, but it is interesting to see what guidance was provided, and how many many were allowed to be selected versus how many actually were.

    There are so many garbage posts from bots here it takes a while to find it but if you go all the way to page 15 you'll see the post for the May 2021 DCO board. Page 4 of that thread shows the official results: DCE had 33 Primary Selectees and 6 Alternates; DCIO had 5 Primary Selectees and 2 Alternates.

    Any day now honestly. Last board happened on 24 May and unofficial results came out 9 July with the official list posted on 21 Jul. 9 July was a Friday and I heard from my recruiter in the afternoon, so lets hope for this Friday afternoon.

    Anyone have the previous numbers for DCL? I know it’s very competitive but I’m still hoping.

    This waiting is killing me.

    Has anyone spoke to their recruiter? I was able to speak with mine he mentioned that results are currently sittign with the Commandant right now. Once he signs then they will release unofficial results. So maybe sooner than we think

    OCS December 2021 selectees were just released yesterday—maybe that’s a sign of good things to come for us DCO candidates today.

    I think there may be some confusion. If I’m not mistaken I believe the Secretary of homeland security signs our results for direct commission and the commandant signs the results for OCS, which is why our process takes longer. Last I heard we were waiting on the secretary and it could arrive anytime in the next month. I do hope it is sooner rather than later though.

    Yeah, I think you're right. I hope they get back soon. I was selected for OCS-R but I want to hear back from the DCL panel before I have to make a decision.

    Based off of previous boards, recruiters will find out results and let applicants know well before the official message posts on CGPortal.

    I would love to be a response officer, but from my understanding PTMO tends to be 'needs of the USCG' in either the prevention or response specialty (although experience and skills play a factor), so we'll see what happens. First thing's first though...gotta get in the door
    I've done hurricane response/humanitarian missions working with different local and federal agencies and really loved that environment, so I figured in general the USCG's mission set was way more aligned to what I liked doing than the Army's.

    Unsure of how he knows you made it. I was told by my recruiter by law they are not allowed to release any knowledge until results are published.

    So i was an alternate last board and I found out from my recruiter 2 weeks before results were published. It seems recruiters are contacted first and given the "unofficial" results.

    Just sharing my 2 cents this morning. The last board in May picked up all the DCL applicants, no alternates. So it's possible he was told he made it unofficially because his recruiter heard that all DCL applicants got picked up again. Meanwhile, back at the bat cave, all the other programs are still being figured out.

    I was on this panel a couple yrs back.. results usually come out by end of the month. I have a few friends on this board as well I've been checking. recruiters don't have results yet..as of Friday.. I also was told that CG was releasing panels out of order for some reason.. like OCS is typically after DCO release but it went out of order.. good luck to all.. once that list drops everything moves pretty fast.. if ur from another service good luck to u lol shit was a nightmare PCSing and getting leave transfered

    My understanding is that DCO course would start on 1 AUG or so. I have a similar amount of leave. I'm told you *can* transfer leave, but it can get really messy and if it's not done just right it ends up getting sold.

    All,

    As an applicant to the last two (Nov 2020 & May 2021) DCA boards I have spent more than enough time searching for patterns from previous results. If you find this info helpful here is what I've found. Again, this only applies to the Direct Commission Aviator program.

    April 2018 Board (14 Primary Selectees, 3 Alternate)
    Board Held - 23 April (Monday)
    Results Released - 03 July (Tuesday)
    Days until results released - 71 days

    September 2018 Board (8 Primary Selectees, 2 Alternate)
    Board Held - Unknown (Probably 03 September [Monday] or 10 September [Monday])
    Results Released - 16 October (Tuesday)
    Days until results released - 36 or 43 days

    April 2019 Board (13 Primary Selectees, 3 Alternate)
    Board Held - 15 April (Monday)
    Results Released - 03 June (Monday)
    Days until results released - 49 days

    September 2019 Board (5 Primary Selectees, 0 Alternate)
    Board Held - 16 September (Monday)
    Results Released - 17 October (Thursday)
    Days until results released - 31 days

    March 2020 Board (6 Primary Selectees, 1 Alternate)
    Board Held - 27 April (Monday)
    Results Released - 29 May (Friday)
    Days until results released - 32 days

    November 2020 Board (1 Primary Selectee, 9 Alternate)
    Board Held - 30 November (Monday)
    Results Released - 25 February (Thursday)
    Days until results released - 87 days

    May 2021 Board (3 Primary Selectees, 10 Alternate)
    Board Held - 24 May (Monday)
    Results Released - 09 July (Friday)
    Days until results released - 46 days

    November 2021 Board (XX Primary Selectees, XX Alternate)
    Board Held - 08 November (Monday)
    Results Released - TBD
    Days until results released - TBD

    Days of the week results were released.
    Monday - 1
    Tuesday - 2
    Wednesday - 0
    Thursday - 2
    Friday - 2

    Key Takeaways:
    - 2020 saw a significant shift in the number of primary vs alternate selectees. Prior to 2020 there were a larger number of primary selectees and few alternates. Post 2020 there have been a few primary selectees and a lot of alternates. This potentially indicates that the Coast Guard is anticipating picking up a larger number of primary selectees however, this has yet to materialize.

    - Results appear to be released randomly. Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays have the greatest odds for receiving results however, that can change with future boards. Additionally, results tend to take between 30 and 90 days with fall boards taking longer.

    As far as leave goes, the 4 people I know who have made the transition from another service to the Coast Guard said your options are to:
    1. Use all of your leave
    2. Sell it
    3. Keep it
    4. Or a combination of any of the above

    If you want to keep your leave you must ensure the amount being rolled over is annotated in the remarks section of your DD 214 and yes, it may take some correction after you transition.

    Hopefully, this helps. Good luck everyone.

    I'm not going to lie... starting to get real disappointed waiting for these results to post. My career path is waiting on these results and this is keeping me in limbo from pursuing other opportunities.

    Agreed. Now that I’m advancing on the enlisted side, I have to start planning for that while still waiting for DCO results.

    If we dont hear anything by the end of this month that would be over 100+days, which is crazy. Either alot of people got accepted or they just that slow. I thought the AF was bad. Judging off of the gentlemen's post usually b/w 30-90 days. sheesh!!

    just have a lil more patience with the process. The pandemic is slowing everything up right now. A lot of people are teleworking, getting sick, out of the office, and we r the smallest service so their aren't as many ppl working for personnel. AFPC is like the entire Randolph AFB.. and in the CG we have like 2 offices for everyone in the CG.. on person gets covid HR it can literally back log everything for weeks.. its bad.. I seen some of u coming from USAF..if u r selected and want that leave.. get on that first..depending on who is working that day they will not put any leave balance remarks in the comments of the dd214.. I had to have them email the balance and do it that way.. good luck

    CDC loosened up the COVID quarantine timelines so much, that shouldn't really be impacting anything like it used to. Same with teleworking, that's been a thing since 2020, processes should be in place to make that efficient by now.

    I was one of two alternates for DCIO last board and didn't get picked up. So no way of knowing honestly, they could pick you up or you could be stuck applying for the next board.

    I just get the feeling everything they want is cyber related. Thinking about adding a Cybersecurity cert from AMU to help with the next DCIO panel.

    On the last board I applied for DCE and didn’t got selected and Ingot selected primary this time. I just graduated with my IT degree and do not have any certificates or experience in IT. They look at your whole package overall guys. Sometimes is just luck. 
    After my last board I didn’t add anything to my package either. I was lycky enough that I could reach out to the Cmdr that did my recommendation panel, and he gave me pointers in my package and he mentioned just to get experience.

    ure right. and every panel is different members with their own unique experience and values.  one person may want u to have10yrs experience someone else may not care as much. it just depends on the panel. no panel is the same.. sometimes it may be best to just go with ur feelings.. if u believe the package is good then keep as is.. if ur mentor says that it's good keep it.. because like I said all panels have a new panel lead each cycle..

    Question for people who were selected for their program, have you received any additional news or documents? When my recruiter called me on the 27th he said I should be getting more info within 2 weeks. I know it’s only been a week but I’m just curious. Thanks!

    Nothing yet, we are awaiting for the official acceptance letter, that you have to sing and return ASAP to them. Either your recruiter will contact you to request a bunch of documents from you soon or he might be waiting for the letters. There is a lot of people that withdraw from the program, so they are sorting through all that from now until probably around April. We should hear from the detailers around April or so. So far the DCO class is sometime in August.

    I have not either. My recruiter has been really good at making sure we have all our bases covered through this process and he hasn’t reach out with anything yet. I did follow up with him today though because he said I should have more info within two weeks of being notified I was accepted.

    Sorry all -- I fell off the face of this forum for a bit, but I still don't know how my recruiter knew. Might have had a contact at HQ or something.

    Anyway, I'm supposed to be going to DCO training in August but I will not be able to for an important reason. Does anyone know anything about postponing, like if we can go to January DCO training?

    RipeyT,
    I was told you can applyas many times as you want. You need to make sure your physicall and recommendation panel still good. Why you don’t put a package for DCIO and DCE?

    Averges,

    My recruiter is telling me this. I was under the impression the same as you. This might be a new regulation. I'm an Intel guy, don't qualify for DCE. I did graduate from a senior military college. So I have a packet for DCSS.

    This is the first time I’ve heard of any sort of limit. I was also under the impression that anyone could apply as many times as they wanted, so long as they were eligible. I recommend asking about this in the USCG subreddit. They have a recruiting thread if you’re looking for further validation of the info you were given.

    Hi All,

    In regards to how many applications you can submit, you can continue to submit apps as long as your eligible for the programs. I have been applying for MARGRAD on and off since 2018 still not having been picked up, and made No. 2 Alternate for MARGRAD this time round (best Ive ever done). I am still eligible to apply for MARGRAD, DCSS, and OCS, utilizing the same materials as long as my interview and other paperwork materials are updated.  You can continue to apply. This last one was my 8th or 9th, Ive lost count at this point.  MSG me if anyone has any further questions

    V/r

    Hey guys I just received my acceptance letter. I was number 2 on the alternate list. My recruiter stated that the assignment lists could be a month out and that we are waiting on someone else to contact us for our next steps.

    It’s surprising how many people rejects their commission after going through the whole process. The bad side os then goin to alternates is that they won’t proceed to the next phase of the process until they get the numbers they need.
    AlanT, does your letter said April and May too?

    Do you know if that timeline is accurate? My recruiter is on the assumption that it should be July and August.

    I’m not sure. The general message from PY22 CG RC officer program guidance and selection panel schedule states COMM July and DCO Aug. I’m thinking that our letter might just mean that’s the earliest we could commission but we’re likely sticking to the schedule from that general message. Just speculating though

    They just hit me up with fixing something in my physical earlier today. They are going through primaries first and their assignments, and are going to hit up alternates in the upcoming couple weeks.

    MECGDCApp,
    Thanks, I also got some amplifying info. It seems that they took the primaries (not sure if it was all of them) to attend the May class. There are 2 waves of people and I will be on the second wave in August. I just hope there are still decent picks or we get a new list.

    Same here!

    Question for anyone that is currently in a another service. Does anyone know how to NOT get placed into the Individual Ready Reserve after you completed your military contract? I was told even if you commission the next day after your final day of your current service to avoid break in service, that if your placed in IRR ( if you havent completed 8 years military service) that it could hinder the Coast Guard picking you up on there system

    I started a thread for the next upcoming panel but I guess it got buried in all of the spam threads here. I mistakenly titled it as for the March 2022 panel, but I believe the actual date is 02 MAY.
