    What hall are the basics sleeping in during BCT? is it the same hall they will be in for their academic squadron and the same room? also, how are the squadrons arranged in the dormitory halls during the academic year? ie: is sqdrn 1 in vanderburg and the last squadron in sijan?

    They're all in Vandenberg Hall and their academic squadrons are not necessarily the same as their basic squadrons. For the most part, groups 3 & 4 are located in Sijan while groups 1 & 2 are in Vandenberg but since there is construction going on throughout Vandenberg, some squads have had to move to other locations different from where they usually would be.

    Here's how the BCT flights/squadrons turn into the academic year when they are real cadets.

    The are 10 squadrons during BCT: A-J
    Each of these squadrons have 4 flights in them.
    That equals: 40 Flights.

    Those 40 flights will take you equally into one of the forty squadrons during the academic year.

    EXAMPLE: If you were in "I-Squadron in BCT, and the 4th Flight", that would be #36. You'll be in Squadron 36 during the academic year.

    A 1-4 = Academic Squadron 1-4
    B 1-4 = Academic Squadron 5-8
    C 1-4 = Academic Squadron 9-12
    .......
    I 1-4 = Academic Squadron 33-36
    J 1-4 = Academic Squadron 37-40

    make sense?

    but then you get assigned a new squadron at the start of your 3* year, right?

    You are correct. It is random for most people, but you can legacy into a certain squadron if you have had immediate family in that squad.
