    Good Morning Everyone! I am currently in the process of joining the reserves. Passed MEPS, performed well on the ASVAB. chosen desired location to work and I submitted my RDP. It's been about a month since I sent my required documents(Letters of Exp. and Resume) for the package and I haven't heard back from my recruiter. I emailed him twice in this period just to check in. I know a month isn't really a long time, but I was wondering how long does take to hear back from recruiter in regards to it being approved or rejected? Additionally, a little more unrelated, I was informed I still had to complete the credit and police check. Does anyone one else know what comes after this step? Thank you for your help! -Jesse

    Your recruiter will let you know as soon as they know something. You will need to complete the credit check and police records check. Once all that happens, you'll be scheduled for your DEPOT date

    I think it is safe to say that most of us have been in your shoes. Even a day without hearing back seems long. You are doing the right thing by checking in with the recruiter. If you have questions about DEPOT please feel free to ask, I am a DEPOT graduate.

    Right, the anticipation is probably what makes it worse. I'm not entirely sure if I'll get accepted but here's to optimism! I passed the checks so all I have left is the RDP approval. how was overall DEPOT experience for you though? Did you learn all the required info prior to going?

    I learned all of the required knowledge and a little more. DEPOT is just like bootcamp, but only 20 days. You get screamed at, a lot of PT, classes, training, etc. Go over prepared in terms of the required knowledge and physical test. They'll ask you randomly about the general orders, ranks, rates, etc.

    Just as an update to this post, I'm still waiting on the approval. it's nerve racking waiting for them to tell me I'm good to go but it is what is it. My recruiter told me they are backed up and systems will be down for a bit. hopefully everything goes through soon.

    My whole process, from my first meeting with my recruiter until my RDP was approved took 12 months. I went to DEPOT five months later, so a total of more than a year and a half.
