616X applicant here. Might be the last time though. I think my career path is pulling me further towards 649X (ATTWO, Anti-Terrorism Officer, Emergency Manager, Chief Master-at-Arms, BA in Homeland Security etc.). Since I don't have the quals they're looking for, never having been on a DDG/CG, it seems like I'm just banging my head against the wall. Meh, we'll see how this year goes.

I'm in the same boat as you too, I'm a gunners mate, but I don't have the CSOOW qual yet that's probably the biggest thing holding me back this year but I have all the other checks in the block for 616x. I'm the assistant ATO at my command and I'm a trasup and was an instructor at Censecfor, I'm interested in 649x but I was always told only MAs get picked up? Do you have any information in this?

They're going to want to see supervisory law enforcement experience.

Not sure about active duty but on the reserve side, I have known personally a BM1 and GM1 to get selected for 649X.

I appreciate you responding, MM1 (SW),  so my question is how do i develop the supervisory law enforcement experience while being on a Cruiser?  Most of my law enforcement experience on the ship is just teaching SRF-B to shipboard personnel

On active, that's probably why it's near impossible to be a non-MA and get selected.

Read the selection guidance for the 649x, and see where you fall in that.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say with this message board being dead,and the selection board only lasting 2 weeks, there must not have been many applicants. Or not as many as normal 

I know at my command we had about a third of the normal amount of people apply

It usually starts high at the beginning and tapers off as people realize how much work it is. We started with 7 LDO and 3 CWO interested candidates, ended with 1 and 1. This is the case at my command at least.

Same here about 6 for LDO and a one or two for CWO.  We ended up with 2 LDO and 1 CWO going to the board with 1 and 1 making the final cut.

I am currently a rated MA and 649 applicant. We had a non-MA at my command who was probably equally as qualified but told by Senior SECO's not to apply because they would only select MA's.

Noticed that results weren't out until page 49 of last year's forum discussion.  Really quiet here this year...

I agree it's been really quite here this year. May be there's less applicants these year and more chances for us to get selected. Haha

Last year's discussion also had an exact day and hour the NAVADMIN was to be released. Any one know how that was obtained?

We all hope they drop this week.  Last year we also had a flag writer that knew higher ups schedules.  My gut is telling me this week.  Maybe they will give insight at some point like they have with past boards saying Triad on this day and NAVADMIN on this day.

No triad release. Just have to wait on the NAVADMIN. Like said above, a chief last year gave everyone about a two day notice. I haven't seen him post anything, so looks like it's just a guessing game

Oh, I was here last year, and the year before, and the year before, yada yada going back to my first time up for Chief in 2008.  The way the results were released for the MCPO and SCPO were Triad first, then message.  I was wondering if these would fall in suit as the subsequent PO1/2/3 were the same. The name has changed as the website has changed, but I was first posting in 2008.

Ok. I was just saying there's no triad for LDO.

We had 6 folks apply for CWO (all 7331) at my command, but it's my first year here so I am unsure if that is normal number.  Not sure on LDO applications.  It was much different than my last command where we only had 1 applicant the last two cycles.
