With the help of our good friends over at USMC OCS Blog , we have a sample Winter OCS schedule from 2008. While your daily routine at OCS might vary slightly this year, the weekly layout is almost identical to what our interviewed OCS 2016 graduates went through.
See the schedule.
You can expect at a minimum the following:
Pick up day (meet your Sergeant Instructors)
Yelling loudly and running everywhere
Eating faster than you’ve ever eaten in your life
Hours upon hours of drill
Picking up footlockers above your head
Class, class, and class
By the numbers movments
Fire watch (aka guard duty)
Uniform and gear inspections
Constant state of hunger
PX Calls (refilling on supplies unless your brought them)
Being annoyed with other candidates
Sunday church service (aka nap time for some)
Hiking with a 30-50lb pack several miles

Lastly, this schedule is for the ten week cycle so all you “six weekers” can expect your schedule to be more condensed and in some cases more hectic.
