Change of Rate During Boot Camp

I was wondering if anybody here thats been through boot camp know if they give you another chance to change your rate at boot camp(the rates that you are qualified for). I was just wondering just in case I change my mind. I dont want to change my rate now due to the fact my ship date will be moved. Thanks in advance if you got information

there are 3 ways to change your rate once you leave for bootcamp:

A. You dont get qualified medically or you fail preliminary security clearance stuff during boot.

B. You Fail A School.

C: You cross rate after 2 years of doing that job.

thats true, you can attempt to cross rate to a spec ops style job. However, I think this needs to be done before boot.. otherwise I think you have to wait 2 years after a school.

it is extemely hard to change ur rate in bootcamp if even at all possible. Something has to disqualify u from that rate. And even if then if it can be fixed with time prepare to be on hold after bootcamp for3 months until u do qualify( as far as medically). I know someone in my devision that got her rate changed due to her not being able to make an audition for her rate making it so that she no long qualified

you CAN NOT cross rate in boot, the only way you will lose your job/get a different one is if you dont pass your security clearance. then you'll have a small selection of choices, but the only people I've seen that happen to are Nukes.

you can also switch to spec ops, but you have to go and workout every morning, then do the regular boot camp stuff, keep passing all the PT sessions and you cant quit going unless you want to get booted out of the program.
