    Question just wondering...

    Advertisements
    but about how much notice after "A" school or just in general...do they give you the orders to know where you're moving next....from reading a lot of these posts it seems like that there's hardly any notice at all or if they do give you notice it changes like 2 secs before you have to leave....just seeing what everyone's experiences have been so i can be prepared...

    Everyday you spend worrying about tomorrow...you miss living for today...

    His choice of orders can depend on his ranking within his A school class. Top of the class gets 1st choice usually. They should be able to pick a couple of weeks before graduation. This is what every one of our friends have ended up going through.

    My DH went straight to his command after bootcamp (no A school, since he struck his rating going in) back in '94-'95. He didn't even go to his first C school until '98.

    Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
    and I'm sure happy with what Iíve got
    I live to love and laugh alot
    and thatís all I need

    he was given a "it will be one of these 3 places" a few weeks before A school was over. indeed, it ended up being place #1. he knew as soon as he was done A school & reported there i think a week and a half after A school. nothing really changed in that time. i dont remember when they made it official.

    When I was in A school ions ago...LOL...they came in about 2-3 weeks before graduation and wrote all the picks on the board and highest ranking in the class got to pick first. That was me. There was only one boat on the list and only one guy in the class, so he automatically got that (and this tells you how long ago it was) because women were not allowed on carriers. Our choices were Hawaii, 2 picks for Monterrey,CA and one for Brunswick. You are darn tootin' I took that Hawaii pick!
