Hello all,

 

   I am hoping someone can satisfy my curiosity. I know a guy who is a 64 pilot and also a prior service Marine. He told me from start to finish his packet took less than 40 days to complete. The recruiter I am currently working with told me that step 1, before I go to MEPS, is to obtain my records from the Marine Corps, which makes sense. However, the recruiting office said that it would take a minimum of 2 weeks for my records to come in due to MEPS being understaffed. Is there any way I can expedite this process? I'm not trying to be one of these people you hear about taking 10 months to put a package together...

 

Thanks for the advice.

Hi Dlogan, Are you currently AD or have you already separated?

If so, depending on how long you've been out I'd look at calling the personnel servicing office of your final unit to see if you can work directly with them. 

If you're still in you can build the packet yourself with little help from a recruiter.

CG,Mech,

 

    I am completely separated, IRR included. I will do that. I spent time on AD and Reserves, so I will contact both prior units directly. Thanks for the suggestion.

Id say the average start to finish time on a packet is well over a year. Those that manage to do it quickly were lucky and had the stars align perfectly. No offense but if you dont have your own set of records and everything in order today your not gonna be in the lucky group. Plan on it taking time. 2 years end to end for me with my records in order. You have to account for alot of scheduling issues. Such as the sift only being given once a month, or the month or two to get your physical done if it falls around the holidays. No reason it should take that long but realize your no ones priority. Not the recruiter, not meps, and certainly not Ruckers. Hell your not even priority once your in flight school.
