Do DEPOT graduates get guaranteed A school?

    Hey all, I am hoping to ship out to DEPOT in September of 2017. I am prior service Army national guard with six years of service. While I was in I was a 13D - pretty much field artillery - but my civilian career has been as a radiation control technician and so I hope to become a Marine science technician or a Yeoman as they seem similar to my current job. I am wondering if DEPOT grads usually get a guaranteed A school because they come out as an E-3 to E-4 or if they still wait on the list like everyone else. Thanks for taking the time to read and respond this!

    You will need a waiver if you are over 5 years AD. You will have to take a critical rate. I believe OS ,CS are the only things critical last I heard. Depot ususally come back in as the rate they were or they go to guranteed a school. Talk to your recruiter because things change all the time. Goodluck.

    Hey same boat - also prior army national guard. MST isn't critical right now so no guaranteed A school. However, you could ask your recruiter about a rate determination package. IDK the details about that - I've only heard they try to line you up with a rating if you have the work experience for it.

    I have no active duty time because I was in the national guard my entire time. I am hoping if I score high enough on the asvab that I can get into something I am interested in. Yeoman would be nice, not sure about SK. Is that the coast guards version of supply?

    A Rate Determination Package is done for those that will be graduating DEPOT as a Petty Officer and waiving A School. It's typically done for those whose civilian job skill set (if Reserve), or prior service experience (if AD) translates into a CG job. These are not done for applicants who are going to A School, guaranteed or otherwise.
