    Dneezy posted in old ME forum;

    I will be attending the first A-School class this February and will be more then willing to update whenever possible AND what is allowable. But it's so new that even my Unit does not know exactly what role the new ME's will be playing and how to integrate us. Like the above says, give it some months or at least until the first class graduates which is 14 APRIL 2010.

    Please post what you know when you guys graduate. My husband wants to do it but he wants to make sure it is worth the wait. No one wants to be stuck as an E-3 forever.

    My husband is in Boot Camp right now and he is excited for this new position. It sounds like just what he would love to do! We however don't know if he is going right from boot camp to this A school? He graduates boot camp April 9th. The above post says the first graduation of this A school is April 14th...Does anyone know when the next group starts? I hope my husband can get into the next school. And am I right that the A school is in Yorktown VA?

    He won't be going straight to "A" school from boot camp unless it was guaranteed. If it was guaranteed it would have been written in his contract. The most likely scenario follows...

    He will report to his first unit. In 4 months he will be eligible to put his name on an "A" school list, and he will wait for orders. The ME "A" school list MIGHT be open then, if not he will have to wait until it does open. Then he can put his name on the list. From that point the wait COULD be up to a year and a half. Things change quickly, so don't take any of this as gospel.

    Thank you for this information. We were told that he might not go right to school and it is not in his contract. The only thing that was, was the district to be stationed for his unit. But he is entering his 4th week at cape may so we will see when he knows more what will happen. It is just so weird to not know anything at this point! But thank you again for the information.

    ME "A" School is in Charleston, SC. The other school are split between Yorktown, VA and Petaluma, CA with the exception of PA "A" school, which is in Ft. Meade, MD.

    Question. So what happens in the meantime if someone has their name on a specific A school list and they're just waiting to get in? Sounds like they'd be lingering around...

    I wasn't guaranteed an A school so I will have to go through the process of finding an A school, correct?

    Once you put your name on an 'A' school list you continue to do exactly what you were doing before you put your name on an 'A' school list: Working.

    Hint: Don't be caught 'lingering around'.

    Haha no I wasn't insinuating that I plan on lingering It just seemed like a gap in time to me and when you say working what would I be doing exactly if I don't havea rate at that time? I'm sorry your response was slightly general.

    I shall try again. Nothing changes because you put your name on an 'A' school list. You keep on doing whatever it is you were doing before you put your name on an 'A' school list. Nothing changes until you get to the top of the 'A' school list and are cut orders to report to school.

    Just out of curiosity if you go to a school and become an me are you screwed if you stay for a career. Im having a hard time thinking of a civilian job that would relate to this rate once one is retired and in their 40's or so. I apologize I don't mean to offend anyone I'm just curious I'm really liking this rate

    Well, the Coast Guard is going to send you to a multitude of Law Enforcement schools. You will be a highly trained law enforcement specialist. The post Coast Guard opportunities are substantial. How does that translate to being "screwed" for other jobs? Local PD, Customs and border protection, Federal LE jobs, private security firms.....etc.

    i only mean "screwed" in the sense that when you retire your generally in your 40's and most law enforcment agencies have a cut off in age. i may be wrong tho, that what i thought tho.

    I have watched a few of the reality shows on TruTV or CrimeTV... there are people just entering police academies now in their late 40's, even 50's. With a strong military background in the right field, you should have no problem getting into a law enforcement agency. You might not have every single one to choose from but I'm sure there will be plenty of available options.

    Think of all the positive things you would bring to the table. Experience, training, wisdom. Agencies like to hire people who are already trained and ready to do the job...versus spending a ton of money to train a person from scratch.

    Would consideration be made with a prior service member with infantry and law enforcement in civilian sector to get a slot on the ME A school?
