    Glad to see someone already answered. Yes, IST is the one you really need to worry about. You'll still be possibly in shock, dehydrated, and sleep-deprived. If you don't pass the IST, you roll right there. If you do pass the IST, odds are you shouldn't have issues with the In-PFA unless you somehow get injured between the two.

    Mid-PFA requires an average of 'Good' overall. But that's not until week 8 (gauntlet week) and will probably be the least of your worries. If you don't struggle with the IST then odds are you won't have any issues going from SAT -> GOOD by week 8 when you PT 5 times a week. I would definately recommend achieving at least an average of GOOD before you check-in. You probably perform lower than your norm/best when you do the IST. Everyone performs less than they usually do.

    My candio phase can be defined by one word. 'Watch'... At one point, I stood 32 hrs of watch in 48rs. On top of having to get pictures done, attend briefs etc. I averaged 2hrs of sleep during indoc week as a candio. Not 'terrible', but still...pretty sucky.

    Watches were boring, so I entertained myself in whatever ways possible. My record for roving the halls of Nimitz is 44+ minutes.

    For anyone who might be interested, here is a freshly updated OCS Survivor's Guide. Unofficial, of course, but updated with a few Ensigns who recently graduated. Best of luck to all heading to Newport!

    In the "Asking Questions" section on page 6, I read somewhere on the forum from a recent graduate of OSC that this is no longer a requirement to speak in third person. Correct me if I am wrong.

    Sorry no one has responded to this yet. But for the sake of anyone else who is interested in the same question: No, you no longer refer to yourself in the 3rd person. I should have included that in my original update.

    This is extremely accurate so anyone who may be attending OCS in the upcoming future should read this!! Concentrate on the RPL information because this is the most important part. Once you get get RLP out of the way, OCS gets so much better.

    Most of these are good changes - teach OCs how to actually act in the fleet so they don't show up and call a Chief 'sir' or call attention on deck for a LTJG - but what is with the nixing of a time honored commissioning tradition?
