    If you have done your ASVAB and medical exam already you just go to swear in and sign the DEP contract. You will learn your ship date if you don't know already. While in DEP you are just waiting to ship. You may have to attend DEP meetings if you live near your recruiter where they check your fitness level and give you the basics for preparing for boot camp. If you live a distance away from the recruiter you may just email or text the recruiter where you are at with your fitness level and prep level for boot camp. Other than that REP is just a waiting period, you can change your mind about joining while in DEP, don't do anything stupid or get into trouble while in DEP because the coast guard can change it's mind about taking you too. Other than that you just show up to MEPS again on your report date or the day before, sign your contract and ship out.

    Thanks for the great info, but my recruiter said it would take about 6 hours which is a lot of time for just a few small things it seems like, no?

    6 Hours! Welcome to the military. It may or may not take that long.

    Your recruiter may be overestimating just to allow for a margin of error. There may be a delay for some reason, etc. Better to say six hours and only have it take two, than have you plan for two and have it take six

    I remember I had to be at MEPS at like 0530 or something super early and the earliest swearing in ceremony was at 1000. So most of my morning was just sitting doing nothing.
