If you want to get out quick go to MKG. I had a person in my class actually pick Helena and he just got picked up 2 NCEPTs ago. He liked it there but he was an outdoors kind of person.

Muskegon is gods country. If times get tough, you can live off the fat of the land, and Lake Michigan. Just have to be ok w getting cancer from the PCBs in the fish. You could also end up in a cameo on "The Curse of Civil War Gold", a uniquely absurd show.

This may be the worst list I’ve seen since I’ve been in, so I’m sorry for that. From my “not a whole lot of experience with those facilities or areas, but the word on the street is.....” I’d say avoid Fairbanks and Juneau only because I know 2 people who quit (one from each) because they were miserable. One of which was the ultimate “Alaska” guy. He’s a hunter, fisherman, camper, all the things.... and he still quit from Juneau... it’s not much of an opinion but there ya go. Best of luck to u!

Again this is the worst advice possible if you are trying to move asap.

Worked out for me. I went in thinking I was gonna stay Wherever I went for minimum 5 years. Might as well get the highest pay if you can’t move. The majority of people will not be afforded the opportunity to transfer and I’m definitely the lucky ones but I would’ve been a lot more bitter stuck making lvl 5 pay then 7.

The goal should be certifying ASAP, training on radar gives you another chance to wash and it gives you almost no advantage in transferring. If you have an interest in radar then by all means do it, but if you just want to get to a specific facility as quickly as possible, go to the best staffed tower-only with the quickest checkout times so you have the most chances to play NCEPT roulette. I was in and out of my level 5 tower in 20 months from day of arrival to reporting to the one I wanted. Three of my classmates are still waiting to check out on radar at a 7, with at least one not even to RTF yet...
