What percentage of new sailors leave RTC as an E-1, versus those who have earned E-2 or E-3?
Which are the most common, and least commonly earned promotions to E-2 and E-3? Earned during bootcamp (leadership), college credits, nuclear power school, Boy Scout Eagle, Girl Scout Gold, prior service, by NJROTC credits, or through the DEP program?
And may I ask why you are looking for this type of data?
Mostly to reassure parents whose sailors are E-1s who have a two-year wait to even get to take that E-4 exam, who feel like every sailor around their kid is already an E-2 and E-3 and their kid is starting behind, in a hole - and feeling very much like their kid is the only one being "held back."
I'm guessing 70 percent of new sailors leave bootcamp an E-1, 20 percent an E-2 and 10 percent an E-3. But that's just my own gut estimate. I'd like to have some real numbers to back it up.
With out having a good reason for getting those numbers I don't think you are going to get them. The parents can ask the recruits what % leave their station as E1-E3
My son is joining as an E3 due to his US Naval Sea Cadet service. He reached PO2 but, I think you only needed to become an E3 in the Sea Cadets. The recruiter seemed to think most recruits joined as E1.
