Making Your List

  • Most important are your top 3 choices and bottom 3 choices

    • The middle does not matter as much

  • DO take into account where you fall in the Navy Medicine hierarchy

    • Have you done an operational tour? Are you fresh out of residency without any time out? Do you have an active duty military spouse?

    • If you have not paid back any time, and only list the 3 most popular locations, you are likely to get something much further down your list

  • Be realistic, talk to your advisor etc to create your list, and be open!

  • DON’T try to play games or harass your detailer!
