I’m heading to OSUT in late Jan with an 11x contract. I’m wondering if I’ll be at day zero or if they will insert me into the AIT portion of OSUT. Any recent info on what to expect would be great. Thank you in advance.

Hopefully you won’t do the whole thing but it all depends on how the school house feels that day. It sucks I know but that’s a fact!

Besides that, just play smart thru training.

Kind of true.. I have seen plenty of prior service arrive on day 1. As a former NCO I hope that doesn't happen to you.

SSG Brian L. yeah I’d like to avoid that. I was told at MEPS someone would be at OSUT to tell me and prior service ppl where to go and ensure I’m treated with the proper respect. But 4 years in the marine corps has made me wary of just assuming “a person” will be there to give me orders.

lol so you know then... I currently have a National Guard trainee who completed basic last year as a split option (to come back to AIT after school) who had to come back to day 0... stuff happens.. either way as long as you prove to be an asset to the drills life should be relatively good for you.

SSG Brian L. , I still don’t know why someone agree to do that crap: split option training.

To my understanding they should have you as an MOS-T but I would assume you will be in a OSUT class when they begin black phase of OSUT aka the official start of the AIT portion.

Im here now as a prior service insert. Let me break it down to you. You'll show up...do processing and then you'll go to HHC at 30th AG, if you're infantry qualified already you'll just get your orders on where you'll be stationed, if not you'll be an insert. All of us will get put into whatever company is taking people in january, depending on the company you may get freedom you may not. As hold overs we literally eat, workout, sleep and chill in the squad bay everyday. Pretty much how it goes right now.

This is perfect, thanks. So they have you just chilling until January? That sucks. Just to be sure you are being inserted into the AIT portion of OSUT, right?

yea i got here Nov 13th, we just been chilling, working out watching movies and eating takeout lol. Also from what we've been told we get inserted at Qual week (BRM) then after that we move up to the AIT portion and then graduate soon after. If you have more than 5 year break in service you get day 0'd and possibly move up but it really depends on which company they put you in. SGT Greg Smith

SPC (Join to see) - What do they do if they have Option 40s but are already Infantry qual'd? I tried to call 75th recruiting and they were kind of surprised, they figured I'd get an initial issue at 30th and then go to Pre-Rasp. Just wondering if any of the guys youre with are in the same situation.
