    Hi All,
     
          I was hoping someone could help me out with some advice.  I am 28 Years old (Male) 4 Year Degree in Business, but only have a 2.3 GPA so recruiter told me I wasn’t the most competitive for OCS, but I think I can do Select Reserve Direct Commission. I was told I can still try for OCS anyway but that’s not until March 2010 for the panel. So regardless, after speaking to a recruiter I decided to enlist because I want to be a part of the USCG so bad and he said if I am selected for OCS I get a new contract as an Officer.
     
       I met with the recruiter Monday he set me up for MEPS for my Physical and ASVAB on Jan 6th and 7th. My recruiter wasn’t the most informative so....Upon successful completion of these 2 things @ MEPS.....
     
    (1)What is the Next Step after MEPS?    
    (2) When do I find out when I am going to boot camp?
    (3)I am a fed employee so does work have to let me go to this if I show them the request for physical form?
    (4) If I end up liking the USCG more than I already do can I switch from Reservist to Active Duty? Or can I sign up for temporary but lengthy missions from time to time?
    (5) When does the initial contract signing etc occur? How many years usually for Reserves?
     
    I REALLY APPRECIATE ANY HELP OR ADVICE YOU CAN GIVE ME!!!
     
    Thanks!

    (1) The next step is to apply for a reserve position at a unit.
    (2) You will find out about a week after your recruiter puts in your reservation.
    (3) Talk to your immediate supervisor about taking time off to test and physical
    (4) You can make the ascension into active duty, but it is difficult. Extended active duty tours are possible, those are arranged via the chain of command at your drilling unit.
    (5) The contract signing will occur within a week or two of you leaving for boot camp. The Reserves is an 8 year commitment.

    Your Welcome.
