Postby gearldsmith Sun Jul 23, 2017 3:30 pm

Hey everyone im prior service Army and ETS'd E-5 (Sergeant) back in 2012. Going back through OCS route. If anyone can assist it would be great, how long is OCS for prior service, or if anyone can provide me with what it entails?

You still didn't post an introduction thread in the correct area. There is a sub-forum called "Introductions", and this thread is located in "Ask the Staff", which is usually for technical topics that pertain to the forum website.

You mention you are only in the MEPS stage of your process. Which to me indicates the very very beginning (yes?). You walked into a Recruiter, took the ASVAB, and are going through a medical, yes?

There is information out there. I don't know what applies to you, but you might end up going to a 6 week version of BCT verses the 2 month version.
