    Can any recent DEPOT graduate please provide a summary of their time in the program? No matter how hard I look, I can find hardly any information on DEPOT and the expectations an incoming recruit should have. I am particularly interested to know what kind of watches are stood, if there are any new classes to expect, and when orders are cut (based off a dream sheet or not?). Also for anyone with a family, what was your experience like setting up a cross country move after DEPOT and do you have any tips? Thank you for any help.

    DEPOT is primarily for reservists, although now prior service can attend. Most of your questions wouldn't apply to DEPOT since reservists go back home. For prior service it would be the same entitlements for moving and such. DEPOT is an 8 week boot camp curriculum crammed into 3 weeks so you better be ready to get information overload. Everything about boot camp applies to DEPOT.

    A couple years ago a user here posted a really detailed write-up of his DEPOT experience. I'm sure with some searching you can find it.

    From my experience and those I attended DEPOT with our orders for A school were cut prior to receiving our DEPOT date since we were primarily for reservists. I graduated from DEPOT 23Oct15 and we were all reservists except one who was prior service and filling a FS spot on a cutter. The only reason we suspect he was an active duty going through DEPOT is because FS is a critical fill billet right now, he has a culinary degree, and was a cook in the Navy so they wanted to get him into the fleet ASAP. I know the rest of the recruits in my company had to have an A school reservation prior to getting their orders for basic. DEPOT generally has 3 convening dates per fiscal year, sometimes I have heard there are only 2. The first one for FY16 was the one I attended in Oct, another convenes this month and the last one is in May. You may be hard pressed to find any answers about a cross country move post DEPOT since as AirDale13 stated the majority are not going active duty. DEPOT is sort of the red headed step child of the CG; it is hard to find info about it and many recruiters are not too familiar with it either. If you have any other questions about what to expect at DEPOT feel free to message me.
