I saw the top three DCE made LTJG. How does someone commission straight to LTJG?

Usually, it’s due to either prior service at a higher or equivalent grade (CPT in Army goes to LTJG in CG, step down of 1 rank) or to make pay more equivalent due to outside education (a masters degree, or similar to how PAs usually commission as LTJG to account for increased schooling required)

Interesting, but doesn't appear to have anything to do with officer recruitment

Talent management and the mission ready total workforce are germane to the conversation. Admiral Schultz addressed officer commissioning/recruiting in a larger context during the State of the CG, albeit was omitted from the article.

So do we think this next board will be better or about the same?

Skater, from what I've been told due to the situation with available billets for Junior officers or JO's I would expect the next panel to have very few primary selectees like this last panel but I could be wrong.

Skater, unsure. I would probably agree with Real Quick. What's interesting is that the Commandant specifically stated that 2,500 Officers will be commissioned over the next 5 years, half from non-academy sources. That's 250/yr... Or 125 per semi-annual board. I just don't understand how they expect to get there at current pace. Video doesn't match the audio type deal.

I'm not yet at this point, but is the requirement for the DCA program below a hard and fast rule, or is it possible to get a waiver? I have a couple more boards before I would hit this point, but planning ahead.

Max Active Duty Service: Have less than 10 years of non-Coast Guard active-duty military service as of the date of accession, which is equivalent to the date that the applicant, if selected, will take their oath of office.

Non academy sources also includes OCS.

Nothing yet. I asked my recruiter recently and he told me the chances they are going to pick any alternates are slim. Hopefully he is wrong.

This is absolutely waiverable. I want to say it's waiverable to 13.

No news on my end. I'm also waiting for chief orders since I made the cut for that. So lots of waiting on my end. Really hoping I make it as an alternate so I don't end up pcsing and possibly making it next round and pcsing again.

If you make Chief, why on EARTH would you want to be an O?

Prefer the jobs, advance faster, better retirement. I’m in it for the long haul.
