How can you conducive for a family will the ME rate be? I am on the MST a school list and thinking of switching over to ME. I have a wife with no family in the US, a 3 month old and 2 year old. I want to do something cool and not just paperwork, but I also don't want to be selfish and it be all about me and I forget about the family. It's hard to find the best balance.

My ex was an MST. There was some travel, there will be with every rate in the CG. But in a 30 year career he never once served aboard a cutter. He was home far more than he was away. Did I mention a 30 year career? In other words, he loved it! There is paperwork, there is in every job, but he still DID a lot, not just sat at a desk. Also, choose a rating that will give you satisfaction in a job. If you do something just too keep you home, you will probably do 4 years and get out, unsatisfied, unhappy and regretting picking something you didn't enjoy.

MEs definitely deal with paperwork just like every other rate as Old Guard said. MEs do travel depending on the job. If you're at a station, PD, or sector there won't be much time away from home. But if you get a DSF unit, cutter or MSST then traveling is in the job description.

A School list for ME's is now closed. Coast Guard will reevaluate in 6mos. So for everyone looking to go ME the wait is now even longer. Just a heads up to any potential recruits.

Hello, Since the closing of ME "A" school I've since switch my focus to Intel.
Does any prior service or active service know if there's any Intel embedded into the DSF units?

Hello,
I am wondering how life is as an ME. What are all of the negatives and positives surrounding this rate. How long was the process in getting orders to "A" school. What was your non rate life like. I am interest in being stationed in the greater NY/NJ area, if someone can tell me what it's it would be greatly appreciated. 

Thank you

Just so you know, ME A School was closed last month, as the rating is full.  The CG will re-evaluate in 6 months. This means that the wait time has significantly increased.  I believe a 3+ year wait time is being forecast. I've seen in a number of your posts that you wish to remain in the NY/NJ area. If that's the case, become a Reservist. The chances of being assigned to where you're from if on AD, are pretty slim. Even if that were to happen out of boot camp, you would not remain there your entire career.
