Have all medical records ready to roll. Score high on the ASVAB. Have DD214 and any dependent documents (birth certificates, socials, licenses) ready to go. After that, there's not much that can be done to speed things up, since it revolves around how soon there is an open spot in boot camp.
You can meet the standard, or you can set the standard. It's your choice.

Oh, and impress the crap out of your recruiter. That honestly might be the most important factor.

Yes. The ASVAB is only good for two years from the date that you take it.

Yes. There are a handful of differend test versions, but it's essentially the same ASVAB. The reason for the different versions is so that two applicants sitting next to each other don't have the same exact test.

It should make it a little easier, yes. If you get otherwise fully qualified, and are selected to join, your recruiter will simply do a reciprocity request to move your clearance from Navy to CG. You also won't have to DEP since you're prior service and it isn't required. That saves you 60 days right there.

Will they care about my PRT scores for the Navy? (1.5 mile run, push ups, sit ups and body fat)

You have got to be the most determined prior service member this board has ever seen! I really hope you make it in! If you are this gung ho about switching, you will probably be an excellent addition to the USCG!

A few of your ribbons will carry over, but not all. You will get to wear them at graduation too. I do not believe your ESWS will carry over.
Honor: if you need it defined, you don’t have it.

Your PRT scores won't factor in either. However, have your evaluations handy, as those might help a recruiter to make their decision about you.

Just an update the Navy is not willing to let me go due to the amount of people they have cut in recently. I got thrown an obliserve witch basically means by the time I get out im going to have about 6 years in. So I guess I am going to go to school and give OCS a try in the future. Happy New Year every one!
