You don't need to do a packet for the BEAR program. That is for a voluntary reclass. If you are doing the BEAR program all your Career Counselor has to do is make you eligible for extension under the BEAR reason code which I believe is A4. Then send up a hotline along with your DLAB results to HRC requesting a 35P class date. Your CC will also have to include what language you would like to do. If it comes back as you are locked in, all your CC has to do is extend you so you have 24 months left in service after graduation. With how short 35P is I do not see any issue of you getting a class date, but don't take that as you will get a class date. After graduation you have 90 days to reenlist for a bonus as a 35P. Your bonus will be based off of the message in place now or the new message which ever is higher.
