I'm actually in a strange pickle, as I am currently PCS'ing technically but I've already been TAD to my next command before going to school.  Would my last command be notified or my gaining command?

What UIC was on your answer sheet? That's where you'll be counted for advancement.

Here's a question. When wrestlers come to the ring and batters in baseball come to the mound they have their get motivated music (theme song) playing. If you get selected, what tune should be playing in the background? What is that one song that will bring the moment to a whole new level? I know it's kind of cheesy, just want people to think of something fun while awaiting the results.

Eye of the tiger! :lol: lol!

Good luck to all SBE tomorrow!!  I hope you all get your S, but if you don't keep pushing!  I know it will be hard to sleep tonight because it feels like the night before Christmas, but try to spend some time relaxing and get some rest!!!!

Best of luck

They mean a lot to your EVAL. The hard part is coming up with something original that the board hasn't seen before. Something catchy. Check your email on here. I have an EVAL writing guide from a Master Chief, but I don't want to put it up for public view since it has his name on it. Anyone else interested in seeing it, shoot me an email.

Thanks for the attachment! Much appreciated.

I've met guys who are dead set on them being selected--to the point where they say if their name isn't on the list that they would lose all faith in the Navy's process. I am curious what the ratio would be of people who are very confident to those who are not.

In this moment my kids have brought about a bit of calm in the storm. Here I am planning 13 contingencies for if he gets the S or if he gets the N and my kids are just sitting here watching Hotel Transylvania 2 for what seems like the 100th time as if nothing important to their world was going to be happening tomorrow. I think maybe I should take my cue from my (almost) 3 year old and just sit back as if nothing is going to make tomorrow any different from today.

has anyone heard a different time other than being released at 1100 EST tomorrow to triad? the folks here seem to think its later and they arent going to announce it until wednesday.... I have a feeling there is a line crossed and if they go that route, most people will already know before an all hands call wednesday later in the day

1100 EST triad came straight from the CNP's office so if your command is saying something different, they might want to go ahead and check tomorrow anyway. The Navadmin is scheduled to be released on Wednesday.

It upsets me when people are so confident and then they don't get selected and throw fits like little kids. I know that if I do or don't get selected its God's will and that I either need to get used to not having a lot of sleep or study for next year and keep pushing. I know some people are really good but no need for cockiness, those are the people to me that step over people to get to where they are vice helping people and having success that way

lol, possible, but I unfortunately think its a matter of missed communication, I actually brought to attention to a few of the MCs the release info from all hands, and it doesnt seem to have been filtered throughout yet... I just have a few meetings tomorrow, that will directly conflict with a late afternoon all hands that i need to understand what needs shifting, so i dont have my sailors driving up and down the island only to be recalled last minute or cancellations. The person running the show on some of these meeting has different information and is acting on that vice what I tried talking to him about.

It was my previous command.  But just having talked to my CPC he was saying that I was gained in the new command on paper.

Good luck to all SBEs (and spouses!!)

I am right there with you! This year seems easier to handle than last year but the insomnia kicked in last week.

I don't necessarily think it's cockiness... what if someone has just really put in hard work and has done exactly what the precepts say they are looking for in a Chief Petty Officer?  I can say personally, I understand the statement of losing faith in the system.  I think I read someone else say this before, but it gets tiring of always hearing to keep doing the same thing from you CoC without any results.

Absolutely! I have always believed in the following phrase: I wear his ring, not his rank! But I cannot help but be nervous for him!

I was the one that said it gets tired of hearing the same old "keep doing what you're doing" bit. It gets very tiring when you've heard it for a decade. I feel that this year is my best chance to date, and if I don't get selected, I have no idea what the board would want from

me.

I agree brother.  When the best they can give you is "keep doing what you are doing" it feels like somehow your best wasn't good enough and they just sent you down a creek with no paddle.  I don't know if I could handle a decade, but I commend your resolve.

One final good luck to all who await the "S"! Only a few hours left. I tried to find out from my LCPO how notification would work. 

Me: "Do we know how the notifications are going to happen?"

LCPO: "I know how they're going to happen!" (While smirking)"Nice try though."

He got me.
