Whatever your sea rotation normally is.. assuming your a corpsman expect 2 years.. idk what RP's do.

Green side billets will take the place of your sea duty.

EDIT: belay my last.. my roommates an 8404.. it's 2 years.

Could you be more specific? E-3 is automatic eventually no matter what rate you are.

HM3 was roughly about 13% last cycle.

However, those with sea time or deployments are going to have more going into those cycles than just regular hospital-based HMs.

I wanna be HM but I don't know it is overmanned. Can I wait til a spot opens to get the rate or will I have to wait a year at a different rate like cook before I can request a transfer?

What do you mean? Are you in DEP and picked a rate already? Or you're still in the thinking stage? Are you already active duty as a CS and looking to transfer?

2015 is a good year.. they just stopped taking hms into the navy for a few months and told so many people they cant reenlist.. i imagine itll improve..14% is the best advancement rates weve seen in a while. kind of stoked.. as a fresh boot you may see 20% by the time you go up.
