When does the background check happen? My OR was very vague. Was that before the board meets or after? After they make their decision for pro rec y? The references I put in the SF86 hadn’t been reached out to so am curious if that’s a different step in the process or if it’s part of the other vague steps my recruiter mentioned happened between my app being submitted and getting on the board list. Or if they generally don’t reach out. Any insight?

My OR had told me the background check doesn’t start until you’re in OCS. @exNavyOffRec would be able to give a more complete answer.

The process will start once you are selected, the depth depends on the designator, I never bothered myself with the background check too much, if you can get through the initial look you should be good, don't sweat this.

I know it’s probably been asked before but when are we getting the actual results?? The wait is literally eating me up 😂 and this is just if we get pro-rec y or n right? Not the OCS date if we do get selected?

Last board, unofficial results were about 3 weeks. The results had Pro-Rec Y and N, Probably 1/3 had specific dates.

Everyone. Set a reminder in your phone for 1Jun2021. That'll be about six weeks. After then, come back to this thread and say "any day now" for about two more weeks.

For me, this board process began with my first submission in June of 2020, results not being released until october. a reconsideration in January, someone mistakingly making my package ineligble, and now this board.

Any insight for reason for reconsideration?

There was 265 applicants on the at board list however. Which is significantly much larger than the FEB board. So that might shift the results timeline a bit but let’s see

Hi everyone! I’m studying now for the gouge and the Officer Candidate School Naval Officer Delayed Entry Program booklet I obtained and there’s some questions I just want to ask you all to chip in with the answers to the questions below so we can all start studying and memorizing. I know it’s still early but never too early to start (amirite) since there's a lot to memorize especially if we're coming in as civilians like me lol

Asking for answers to these Questions [word by word from the book]
  1. Explain the program in which were recruited:
  2. Name and identify different warfare devices
  3. State the purpose of identification cards and recognize the information contained on an armed forces identification card/tag
  4. Explain what to bring to Officer Candidate School (OCS)
  5. Explain reporting procedures at OCS
  6. Explain what to expect at OCS.
  7. Explain the necessary attitude to adopt while at OCS
  8. Military Drill (Hand salute, stand at attention, stand at parade rest, execute left right and an about face, execute dress right dress at normal and close intervals) [Yall know any youtube videos to start practicing??)
  9. Describe when, where, and whom to salute
  10. Describe procedures for arriving and departing the quarterdeck
  11. Describe procedures followed during morning and evening colors
  12. Identify the two main objectives of the Department of the Navy
  13. Identify the duties of the Commanding Officer, Executive Officer, Department Head, Division Officer, Division Chief, Petty Officer, and Division Leading Petty Officer
I already memorized the Oath of Office, Sailor’s Creed, 6 articles of code of Conduct, 11 general orders of Sentry, one mission of the navy, and alphabetical phonetics. Very shocked that I only memorized one of the questions listed above (11 general orders of sentry) when I saw the DEP orders in this booklet. If you all want a picture of these pages, assuming you guys don't have the booklet idk, more than happy to post here too since I didn't put all the questions in here! Let’s help each other as we wait! THANK YOU!!
