    Since this is a fairly anonymous forum, would you mind sharing why you were unable to complete the training?

    Sorry to hear that but thanks for posting. Did you get a sense of how many people were going active vs. reserves? Which were you aiming for?

    Sorry to hear about that. Don't give up if its something you really want to accomplish. I graduated in January and we lost 14 out of 42. Unfortunately DEPOT doesn't have much info out there and even recruiters don't know specifics to prepare people.

    Orbit. I’m sorry to hear things didn’t work out. Regardless, congratulations on being the first transgender recruit in the USCG!

    Did they get you on the PT test? Truth be told, I barely passed my retest in the April DEPOT. We lost 10 out of 31 in the first week.

    Hey Orbit-- so sorry to hear about the training. I am sure you will get back up and nail this down.

    @ MrSteve007-- what were the biggest challenges at the DEPOT you and others experienced? I am shipping soon in 5 weeks and I am nervous/excited.. hearing all the drop out numbers are a bit intimidating..

    @ Tombraider330 - 80% of our dropouts were due to failing PT. I was surprised when we lost a couple prior-service members who had just come out of the Marines a few weeks earlier! Situps, push-ups, the swim and the run; each of them claimed DEPOT members. Arrive to Cape May being able to exceed the non-age adjusted standards by at least 10%, or you won’t pass the PT test.

    The other dropouts were due to a mental breakdown on day 1 and a broken hip on day 4. DEPOT is no joke. It will also likely be the most emotionally & mentally challenging experience of your life. Arrive prepared and it’ll be doable. Arrive without proper fitness or having memorized the required knowledge, your time will be short in Cape May.
