Yes I did google it. The pages that are coming up are not the specific site where you fill out the SF86 - unless I’m missing it somewhere within the page: http://www.secnav.navy.mil/dusnp/Security/DONCAF/Pages/ClearanceProcess.aspxHate to be a jerk about this, but did you Google? Literally on the first page of results....
It matters less at this point, but I googled using your search terms: "Navy sf86". I followed the link and it is indeed the correct website.Yes I did google it.

Thank you for the feedback! With motivation, it was corrected and then some. I lost 45lbs in less than 60days! I’m back to PT at our campus gym every morning for a run and weights, and then in the pool after work. Fortunately the office offers gym time on the clock. I’m now able to do an easy 3000 meter swim in 60min with sheer boredom and 2.5 mile run every other day under 30min.BLUF: How bad do you want it?
Your BCA *can* be corrected in a month's time. It's just gonna be challenging on your part.
Cut all dessert out of your diet
Cut all soft drinks and kool-aid/similar.
Cut out mayo/ketchup/salad dressing. Use flavorful spices instead; oil/vinegar on salads,
Actually read the food package labels for recommended portion sized, and eat *one* portion per meal period.
Moderate cardio with light/medium weight twice a week; Intense cardio once a week. Ideally something like M-W-F.
This will totally be the worst, but not worse than having your package stall because you couldn't make weight.
Congratulations!!Thank you for the feedback! With motivation, it was corrected and then some. I lost 45lbs in less than 60days!
Could you messaged me directly please I'd like to ask you questions about DCOIC.DCOIC is a joke, the uniform "inspections" are a joke, and knowledge memorization is a joke. You don't need to know the 11 general orders, you don't need to learn anything before you go, you can literally show up with no uniforms and the uniform "inspections" are not exactly the same standards employed in traditional Navy boot camp or at OCS. As long as your pants are hemmed and your fly isn't open, you pass the uniform inspection. For crying out loud, there are literally people who can wear their rank backwards and the Chief will show you how to wear it correctly and then you pass the "inspection." This is not OCS and it is every bit of a gentleman's course as you can get.
It is not about being an O1, O2, or Oanything, nor does anyone really care about the pay. For most of these highly qualified people i've met whom are also my fellow 1835s (in the last ca. 5 years) they fall into two categories. They've made it in life and want to serve the military either for their own personal self interests or truly for noble reasons. Either way, they don't want to take much, if any, time away from their civilian lives and they don't want to put up with bullshit. Most of the guys serving with me never even wanted to join the Navy, but they did want to be a reserve commissioned officer without the bullshit of 20+ weeks of OCS, another several months on active duty for schooling, etc. and when you look at all the reserve commissioning programs, you quickly narrow it down to the Navy's beautiful 1835 program where you can get the most for giving the least. If you are a highly competitive candidate, the 1835 program is also the easiest commissioning program with the least amount of bullshit involved to become a commissioned officer.
Sorry that I am just now responding to this... What are the retention rates? Do we know how may DCO selectees fall short after their selection and leave after the minimum years?!IMHO, with a retention rate of DCO assendees as bad as they are, a hard look at the board process would be fiscally wise. A lot of money invested in training goes out the door when you have uber motivated individuals fall flat on qualification milestones.
I'm curious about the same. And what's the minimum number of years you're thinking of? 8? That's still a long time.Sorry that I am just now responding to this... What are the retention rates? Do we know how may DCO selectees fall short after their selection and leave after the minimum years?!
I hope that you are not in the same unit. You are supposed to be moved to a different unit after you commission.Since I was already a SELRES E5 my process went quick I feel. I commissioned three weeks ago and I start drill this weekend as an O1E at the same drill location I have been attending the last year. DCOIC is scheduled for early April I am on the class roster.
Do 1835s attend the active duty NIOBC or RNIOBC?my guess is it may not matter much during INDOC phase and when Navyjames is in Training status. After DCOIC or RNIOBC there should definitely be a move. If that is the only drilling location in a large area... maybe that is all that is available?!
