Four years at the Academy and still doesn’t know the difference between “ringer” and “wringer”...what are they teaching there?!

I’m just fucking with you, that’s awesome news, enjoy the break between the Academy and NFO primary, you’ve earned it!
Fuck lol. I guess I'm glad I never said I was a good Midshipmen or student..

Thanks though, can't wait to get there but I'll enjoy the time off too.

There are 170 seats per year, and the last commissioning programs brief I attended said every year seats aren’t filled. Has that changed?

Please take your experience and pay it back/forward to future classes of naval officers. Encourage every Sailor you encounter in the fleet who is young enough and capable enough to do this. They’ll want STA-21 so that they can do real college, but that’s a slim shot and this is still a great opportunity.

Classic noob sked writer spelling error. That, and fucking up Yuma range times bc AZ doesn't do the fall back/spring forward thing...

To the OP, congrats!
Thank you, JTS11!

I cannot speak to the # of seats but we have not reached 170 enlisted applicants in any class since I've been here - not by a very very long shot. In fact I think only about 55% of the enlisted I began with will ultimately finish with me.

While I have little good to say at the moment (since liberty has been restricted again due to COVID and this makes for an angry Mid), the education I received here has been nothing short of phenomenal. Now you can all probably tell I squandered that education a little bit based on my command of the English language, however, I have learned and experienced so much I'd never throw my time here away. I will certainly be advertising this option to those willing to listen.

to the OP, Congrats! My son is a 2nd class right now, so I know how much is sucks there these days. Hopefully you guys will get a somewhat normal commissioning week experience.

Is the 10pm screaming still happening every night?

Thank you! Yeah I'd like to say I enjoyed 1/c year, sadly, I'm pretty excited to see it behind me. They're telling us they intend for a normal week, but no promises.

Absolutely, 10pm sharp. Here is a link to my drive with an audio recording my roommates took the night the new ROM was announced.
