How does Sea Cadets transfer over to USMC?
Just had a question...
I'm a PO2 (Petty Officer Second Class) in the United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps, and I should be getting promoted to PO1 in a few weeks. I was just wondering if I would get a higher rank upon completion of boot camp?
Any help is appreciated.

You're already an E-5 and almost an E-6, if I'd be you I'd stick with it. And you won't be anything higher than E-2 in Marine boot.

Is that like Navy JROTC? If you complete two years of JROTC, you will be a contract Pfc. Rank in school programs will not transfer in the actual Marine Corps. Time spent in the program may help you towards obtaining the rank of Pfc upon graduating boot camp, but there is nothing you can do to exceed Pfc upon graduation (unless you are the honor grad of your platoon in boot camp). Hopefully this answers your question.

Thanks for your answers. My dad made it to Chief in the Sea Cadets and he told me that the greatest thing that cadets did for him was to teach him Honor, Courage, and Commitment.
Also, I should be a POOLEE by this Wednesday. I can't wait to join all of you as a United States Marine

Sea Cadets is kind of like JROTC, except that it's endorsed by the NAVY and Navy League. When people ask us what we are, we always say
"We're like the Young Marines, except for the NAVY"

Keep it up and you can come out of boot as a Gunny. Mind the paperwork...
Just kidding. Hope it all works out for ya. Just take the fundamentals you've learned and try to apply it to the Corps. Should work out ok.

I confused sea cadets with the Naval Academy. I know for sure those mofos gets paid E-5 during those 4 years. So nevermind.

Like the Marine said- that's what most E-5s make after beer money!
