Iv'e read a lot of posts talking about the topic here and I'm not exactly seeing my question pop up. What I'm curious about is whether or not it's possible to get a guaranteed slot for ME "A" School prior to shipping or even leaving for boot camp. I'm a prior service Marine and will be going in as an E-3, so far all I've found out is that the only guaranteed jobs are FS and OS but once you get on an A School list you will be locked onto that school as long as you don't get put on a disciplinary status. Also, is it true that E-3's get bumped up on the list ahead of the E-2's?
So far all I've done is gone to MEPS to get a new physical. I've yet to sign any papers locking me into anything and just want to see if there is anything that I can get in writing that states I will be going to ME.
--Thanks for the help in advance!
