Probably a safe assumption. As I'm on the west coast I log on here every morning before I come in hoping that the news has hit the east coast first haha. Surely it can't be that much longer but my recruiter did say to expect up to 2 months so that'd be another 3 weeks.

Well welcome to the party West Coasties!
Had a buddy picked up last board who was notified at 8 weeks. But he was told that the delay was due to the Hurricanes. Makes sense, since he was also interviewed in El Paso by a panel from the east cost for the same reason. Feedback from selectees from previous boards seems to indicate 6 week notifications are about average to me. Does anyone else have a different perspective?

My perspective is based on the rejection letter coming at 8 weeks instead of the acceptance call...

Any bets on tomorrow, Friday 1 June for acceptance calls? Great way to start of the weekend!

JBsmith,

Was this a response to how many MARGRAD's are in the FY19 budget?

A friend of mine went through DCO in January... she heard on 07 June.

I imagine the incoming Commandant will want to ensure that his DCO program conforms with his guiding priorities. The 01JUN ALCOAST didn’t directly reference DCO but I wonder if that partially explains the delay.

Recruiter called today to say that the holdup likely does have some relationship to the commandant’s change of command and that although the board has made their decision, recruiters have NOT been notified yet of the results. He said many times the results are merely awaiting appropriate signature and that he suspects that is also the case for the April DCO board. The recruiters at his office are hoping to receive results before 15 June but don’t know for sure.
Might help with the waiting (especially if this is not your first attempt) to know that you are not in the dark alone - we are still all in the same boat.
I’m planning to submit updates for the next board just in case. (15 June is deadline) good way to pass the time!

I noticed the dates for the next FY boards are posted already. Seems they are all about 1 month earlier throughout the year. That June deadline is coming fast! Hard to believe the next deadline is so close and the April results are not released yet. My bet is for Friday again this week! Just seems like it would be a good time to find out!

Unfortunately no. They're going to have a lot of applicants for the next board if they havent told people they are in yet.

Yep. Months. So found out all DCO selection go through the CG chain of command then up through department of homeland security to the secretary and then back down. So it can take 4-6 months. Also learned that the selection board gives each memeber 12 minutes with a packet then on to the next.

Talked to my recruiter as well because 6 months makes no sense. I know for a fact that people in the last board found out about 2 months after the board. If it was 6 months we'd be finding out at the end of October, which makes no sense given all that has to happen on the CG side between notification and us showing up at DCO school in January. He called "the guy" who also told him 6 months, but my recruiter said the same thing, he had a guy on the last DCO board and it took about 2 months. So probably another few weeks.

I called my recruiter and he told me at least 4 months. That is ridiculous since there are only so many boards a year. They are going to lose a lot of great applicants. A lot of people will not want to wait half a year to hear then wait more months to actually commission when other branches will tell you the same day if you have received a commission. 4-6 months thats crazy talk.

Lol folks just hang in there and don’t freak out. Neither 4 or 6 months is believable, but even if it were, it would still be worth it.

How is everyone doing as we wait out day 52? I’m staying optimistic for a notification on Friday. Hopefully, it will be this Friday.

Hang in there!

Yeah we're right at the timeline from the last DCO board (16 October to 06 December) so really should be any day now.

Talked to my recruiter today. The dco results are still waiting for the Commandant's approval. Once they get that they still need to go up to the Secretary of the DHS, which it may take up to another month for it to go up and come all the way back down.
