Someone posted last summer's BCT schedule on this forum within the last couple of months but I can't seem to find it. Anyone remember what thread it was under? Thanks.

I cannot get that link to work. Someone cut and pasted it on a thread here though and that is what I am trying to find.

Note 1:
I saw a discrepancy between the printed time for Noon formation and the blocks on the schedule. The "time" says Formation and Lunch will stretch from 1100 - 1230. The blocks indicate 1130 - 1300. Thus, the formation may be at 1110 or 1140, depending on which is correct.

Note 2: Although it says TAPS is 2100, the Basics will be permitted to watch the fireworks. TAPS will really be after the fireworks are over and they return to their rooms.

I'm just going to be the first one to point out the obvious... BCT looks like it's going to be GOGOGO. But I hate being bored with nothing to do, so it looks like that won't be a problem

I don't like the idea of going to sleep at 2200 and waking up at 430 to do PT...it's only 6.5 hours and...well... recently with vacation and all i've been averaging 10-11 lol. It'll be interesting to see. So far I think this is what will bring me down.

Seriously? I saw most nights taps was at 2100, and an occasional 2200... I consider that pretty generous IMO.

It may look that way, but there is plenty of time to be bored (and worse, for your cadre to be bored), especially during first beast.

hahaha... you will be bored. tons of standing around and doing NOTHING (besides studying and being very very still).

tons of time to get beat.

tons of time for "activities" as our cadre liked to call them :)

it may look full, and in reality it is. but it's also TONS of waiting in lines, tons of standing up. it's not so fun. but you'll still have a good time, and you should MAKE time to go visit the people in your flight, because you'll be with them for the rest of your 4dig year if you make it out.

HNeedle, when you say "MAKE" time does this mean we kinda-sorta-maybe have a little personal time during BCT?

mmmm, well kinda, sorta, a little bit. lol

point being, if you've ironed your uniforms and shined your shoes and have a clean room, nothin's against goin to talk to your classmates/friends. plus, the cadre will start asking very early what the basic standing next to you's name is, where're they from, how many siblings they have, etc. so it's better to just know.

that was one of our biggest mistakes as girls during basic...we were in a separate hallway and scared to death to go down and visit the guys. in hindsight, we should've.
they all got really close, and it took us a little bit into the schoolyear to achieve the level of camaraderie with them we should've had from the beginning.

same happened with us. the girls were in an adjacent hallway and never came to talk to us.. so the guys (that dared to venture into the hallway and into another room) got really close, but we never really spent time with the gals til the ac year started. and now we're all a big family
