    Have completed all requirements of enlistment process (MEPS, ASVAB, PT, background & credit check).  Being told another 16 weeks to boot camp.  Is the long wait due to me coming from a recruitment office with more applicants than other enlistment offices?

    It’s due to the slots available.

    I just read something on the internet (so of course it must be true *shrugging*) No one that is a Corona Virus survivor will be allowed to join the military. I cannot validate ANY truth to that. It is just head scratching to me. Please contact your recruiter if you have had the virus and stay as up to date as possible with any changing regulations due to the virus.

    Thanks for replying but I am a little new at this.  Are slots the number of openings that each recruitment office is given to fill ?    If so might someone get to boot camp sooner than someone else who applied from another recruitment office with a lesser amount of slots ? 
    Basically, Is it important to research the recruitment office which could get you to boot camp the soonest if that was your goal.

    The number of slots has to do with Reserve recruiting.  Reservists are recruited to fill specific slots at a specific unit.  For active duty, there is no quota that needs to be filled, or is allotted to any particular office.  Going to one recruiting office over another isn't necessarily going to get you to boot camp sooner.  A lot of that has to do with factors outside your (or the recruiter's) control.  For example, if there are any issues that come up during your medical exam at MEPS, that will add time.  If there are any issues during your security clearance, such as difficulty contacting references, that will also cause a delay.

    It’s also dependent on the slots they have at Cape May...

    I’ve heard that for the Navy, the two week quarantine counts towards their eight weeks total of boot camp (so when they get o it of quarantine, the only have six weeks of regular boot camp). 

    Does anyone know if the USCG is doing it that way too, or is the two week quarantine in addition to the eight weeks of boot camp? 

    And what about for DEPOT? I can’t imagine they would have recruits arrive for DEPOT, go into quarantine for two weeks, then have regular training for only one week then graduate.

    Yes the two week quarantine counts towards the 8 weeks of training. For DEPOT they are there for a total of 4 weeks now including the quarantine.
