I read the following in the FAQs section on the USCGA Parents Association Web Site, which got me wondering: How are swabs assigned to a company? Is it random? Is it based on majors? Is there some consideration as to the best fit based on how the swab presented himself/herself during AIM, in their interviews or on their applications, or as they have gotten to know their admissions officers? Are requests considered (or is that laughable)? Also ... once they are assigned to a company, do they stay in that company for their entire four years or is that subject to change?
