    Just remember the dream sheet in boot camp is 4 districts, and three picks for each district.

    If you have a guaranteed district it is 12 picks in that district, so plan accordingly.

    Also, the dream sheet is a REQUEST, it does not guarantee anything.

    SOOOO they show you a list of (lets say) 50 openings, and you make a dream sheet based on those stipulations?

    They give you a packet of units, broken down by the type of unit (small boat stations, high endurance cutters, etc), and then broken down by districts. The units are the ones that have non-rates, which means you won't see MSST's, MSRT, LEDETS, TACLETS, etc.

    You can meet the standard, or you can set the standard. It's your choice.

    The list isn't just the openings. It's every unit in the Coast Guard that a non-rate can go. You make your 12 choices. If the assignment officer can place you at your first pick, awesome. If not, they work down your list until they find an opening. Sometimes, that could end up being lucky number 13 if there are no openings in your first 12 picks. BUT, one applicant that came through my office got lucky number 13, and she's very happy with her station.

    Our company Alfa just grad. apr 16 and there were about 8 people that even got a pick on there dream sheet. We graduated 79. There are not a lot of openings so like our cc said, its pretty much just a detailer throwing a dart at the map right now. Good luck, I was mad, sad and pissed I was stationed in boston, but ive been here a week and am really starting to like it.

    Just remember that sometimes a place you didn't think you'd want can turn out to be really awesome. I didn't want to be in northern California, but now that I have been here for four months I LOVE this area. I am actually considering building my post-Coast Guard life here. It's because you get used to the area and start to appreciate it for it has to offer, and you also get to know the people and realize there's cool people everywhere.

    Also remember that if you go somewhere you didn't want or expect, after your enlistment is up you can look back on this and appreciate these 4 or 6 years of your life as your "adventure period." The time that you tried something totally different and new and survived, so you can now go back home or wherever you want and have all these experiences to draw from that you wouldn't have had otherwise!

    CGFowen,

    Where in Boston? My son is on the Seneca, I know the ship isn't home right now, but when it gets back, get in touch with him. If you haven't found the greatest pizza place or best clubs, I'm sure he'll be happy to show you around. :) I just visited there and it was pretty amazing. I sure hope you keep enjoying it more & more.

    Macie :)

    Just be glad you got in. Remember that there are a lot of people that want in and can't. Somewhere on here someone did the math and for every 1000 people, 11 get in so count your lucky stars. And if you don't like your station, you will move in three years for sure.
