Hey Gents - I've tried searching this topic for about the last hour, but to no avail. Can anyone tell me where I can find Reserve cutting scores? More specifically the 1100 field (1171 MOS). I've been in for 3 years now and am still not quite sure how promotions work in the reserves. I've been a Lance over 2 years now, and have never had anything but a first class PFT/CFT, expert Riflemen, and a 4.6/4.6. I've maxed out education points and am tired of being a Lance, what gives? Thanks in advance for good answers to a boot question.

That's something your seniors should know... take some initiative there waterdog.

ah yes.. they SHOULD know, however the only answer I seem to get is: "I have no idea, they're slow." etc... there's only 2 NCO's in my unit for 1171.. they were both previously active duty and came to the unit Sgt.'s the manpower link only shows the 1100 field up until 2004 or for the 1169 (utilities chief).

I had this problem at my unit. I transferred to the SMCR after four years on active duty. I was shocked to find Marines unaware of both their composite scores and the recent cutting scores. Heck, most of the time when I asked them what thru composite score was they had no idea what I was talking about. I ended up giving a full class on it to all my Marines. On active duty everyone is checking their scores looking to pick up. I guess a lot of reservists aren't concerned as they only do it once a month. However, back on subject. As The Reservist pointed out, that is the link to find cutting scores. The reserves promote NCOs by occ field and quarterly not by full mos and monthly as on active duty. Secondly, that page is broken down by date or occ field search options. Use the top option, date, to pull up the cutting scores for specific quarters. I was able to view the 1100's most recent score for April. The bottom option is good for viewing score trends over time.

SSgt its because the scores are ludicrously high. Honestly in some MOS you can be **** hot and unless they put a package in for you, you will stay a lance for all 6 years

Thanks for the help... 1742 is quite a score. I've been talked to several times about meritorious but you all know how fast (or slow I should say) things work in the Corps, especially the reserve side. Another question if anyone knows. Say a reservist activates for deployment, will that make him fall under active cutting scores?

Yes, I believe you compete under the active duty scores if activated. However, if you want to be sure check the enlisted promotions manual. As that is the final word on this matter.

When you get activated your still under the reserve cutting score... just remember to add 21 points to your score ever quarter for tig/tis
