Default Security Clearance

I am currently in the DEP, going into the reserves as an "IT" and ship to Great Lakes at the end of August. I read some places that IT requires Secret, other places that say "Top Secret", and other places that say "Secret with SCI/Background Investigation". which is it, and what is entailed with each of them. not that it matters just trying to figure out what all I have to go through.

I signed for IT and am also curious about this. I think I read somewhere that a TS isn't necessarily required and that it'll depend on your assignment.

If we're getting TS right off the bat, does the investigation start while we're in DEP or after we leave for RTC?

I got top secret as an IT. As for the investigation, after you leave meps i believe is when they start that. My Recruiter notified me that i passed about 2 weeks later.

Unless you're a CT of any kind. As a CT, you'll need a TS//SCI before you're allowed in the SCIF (where you'll be for class). IT A-schoolers aren't in a SCIF for class and thusly aren't required to have TS//SCI.

You passed for Secret. (most people do before the leave for boot)

You won't be granted TS or SCI until your job actually requires you to have it (ie you're at your command or a C-school that requires it). As an IT you might need it to work with crypto for the comms circuits. But you'll get into that once you get to your duty station.
