    I just took the oath and singed my contract last week for the Delayed Entry Program. But when I looked over my contract there was nothing on what Job I was going into. All there was we're fields about my personal information and my details on how my years I'll be in Active then Reserve. My question is what is the process for choosing your rate in terms of the DEP? For some background I qualified for A School in every rate.

    First off, how did you make it this far into the process without understanding how rate selection works in the Coast Guard??? I don't know if it's a failure on your part, your recruiter's part, or both, but the system definitely broke down somewhere here.

    Anyway, with the exception of reservists and active duty members with guaranteed A School contracts, future Coasties don't choose their rate at MEPS like members of other branches do. You will graduate boot camp unrated, then after being at your first unit for 4 months you will be able to put your name on the wait list for whatever A School/rating you choose, so long as you qualify for it.

    Failure on both of our parts, I told him what rate I wanted to go into and he wanted me to get through swear in before we talked about it in detail. But thank you, I appreciate the reply since my recruiter is on Vacation for the next week.

    ebee put it best. But for a BM the wait list isn't that long. After you get to your first unit and get qualified, just stick your name on the list and off you go.
