@AGasp.

Welcome to the stress fest buddy! It sounds like you have an accurate expectation compared to what I have learned thus far!

Thanks for the confirmation @maxtaylorsmith. It seems to me if we commission on 27APR, then have travel time to our units, it will be less than a month depending on our home of record and distance to our first unit. Either way, I'm standing by to stand by for the AO.

You are correct that with travel time you will have less than 30 days. We only have 30 days between commissioning and school. I am personally stressing out about this because I am currently stationed in Guam with my family. Nothing like scheduling military movers last minute. I may have to actually leave my family here to move on their own. It all comes down to when we actually receive orders. I have been talking with Officers that went to DCO school 6 months ago and they all told me they received orders about two weeks before commissioning. Hopefully we all receive our choices soon.

@seanMM

If it is any consolation, I am leaving my family for the initial move and through OCS (my wife is a teacher and we both feel its necessary for her to continue through the end of the school year to provide continuity for her students during state testing season). I talked with our liaison, and was informed that scheduling the HHG move after we graduate is not an uncommon practice, albeit may be slightly tougher due to it being in the height of transfer season. I plan on doing a DITY move, so it should be easier. In your situation, being in Guam, you may not have any other option than going through government movers.

At the very least, holding off on the move until after graduation could be an option for you to consider. Everyone has a unique situation to navigate..

I plan on staying in a hotel for the first month at my first unit while looking for a permanent place. My thought is to not pay rent in two places, especially if no one will be there for 5 weeks of the lease.

Bury a Statue of Saint Joseph, upside down, in your front yard.  It will sell almost immediately!  Honest, it works incredibly well.  Google it if you don't believe me!

Hey Sean when I Commissioned last year I was stationed in Alaska. Due to being overseas, I spoke with the detailer and my new unit (once I finally received orders) and was allowed to PCS AFTER DCO school. I went to school in May and graduated July 3rd, flew back to Alaska, did my TLA for 10 days, then drove from Anchorage to Seattle. I didn't report until the end of July. The detailers are pretty good with the OCONUS individuals especially with the delay in orders. 

Also once you submit your list, you will receive a personal phone call from detailer telling you where you are going before you get official orders. I received the call on a Friday and had the orders my Monday or Tuesday.

Thanks Devin. I was really stressing the move from Guam. I think this might be the best option, however convincing the family is a different story. I think it all really depends on when we get orders. It is nice to know they will work with you on that. I hope we get our picks soon, this wait is killing me. How soon before commissioning did you get picks and how soon before commissioning did you get orders?

Awesome! See you at the schoolhouse! Has anyone heard from the AO? I am thinking beginning of March based off of the posts in the April 2019 DCO thread, it seems it was 6 months from the interview date.

I was looking through last years Sept DCO process and based off that we may receive picks Feb 24th. If I'm wrong I am returning my crystal ball I purchased at the exchange.

I think Guam MIGHT be on the DCIO list. My unit was approved for an Intel Ensign and specifically want someone from direct commission. If anyone is interested in Guam PM me if you have questions about it.

Hey all, just joined the forum. I'll be at the 28MAY DCO school, coming over through PTMO.

I'm looking forward to meeting everyone and congrats again to Hollow23 for getting picked up!

Anyone else having to redo their flight physical before the commissioning date? Mine is expiring before then and the recruiter called to tell me I have to redo the whole class 1A again. Kinda frustrating because it took forever the first time and I thought it was valid for a lot longer.
