    Is getting called as an alternate to have fingerprints taken (after eQip) a good sign? Or it is normal for all alternates to have their fingerprints taken at meps?

    Normally that is done when you first enlist. What number are you on the list? Did your recruiter call you? My wife is 1st DCE alternate and got a call a couple of weeks ago from her recruiter that Recruiting Command told him they are looking at choosing from the alternate list and wanted him to make sure his people had everything done. For some reason the HSs from her last unit left her color blind results off so she had to get that done again.

    I asked my wife and she said it sounds like they are prepping you for the same reason they had her make sure all her stuff was done. That is they have a good idea that they will be needing alternates.

    gypsyjoe11 thanks for your response. My recruiter called me a few times, for fingerprints once, and also because Recruiting Command requested some documents from my Army enlistment, but he has no relevant information. Hopefully, they will be needing some (maybe ALL of them) alternates. Good luck to your wife.

    My wife found out last Friday morning. They didn't call her, the recruiter just emailed the letter. Luckily she wasn't on leave and checked her CG Email. So make sure and check your Coast Guard email.

    We talked to someone who just graduated and found all the details out about the school. She's looking forward to going.

    The detailer sent us a list of 14 positions and she emailed them back to him in order of preference. He said he was hoping to get her orders out the last part of Sept or the first part of Oct. We didn't get them last month so we're hoping they'll come this week. Cross my fingers

    The person we talked to was prior service so he didn't attend the first week. From what I hear they make the first week more like boot camp.

    What questions did you have?

    I went to DCO last year. What questions are you looking for? What is her specific accession program? I transferred as a comissioned Officer from another branch so my understanding of the first 1-2 weeks is limited to what was relayed to me by my classmates.

    This is a bit of an old post but here it is. I just got news that I am the #5 alternate on the unofficial list. Has anyone on here started as an alternate on the unofficial list and made it to the primary official list? My second question is, what is the time line in which alternates are notified? Thanks.

    I know several who were picked up as alternates last year. Some were notified like a month after official results, some were not notified until several months later. It just depends on what the people in front of you do and what big Coast Guard decides.
