Work hard on course and if you finish near the top, they might let you choose your first ship. I was lucky, I was always able to choose my drafts, probably because I did OK in my exams and I also give a cracking nosh.
There used to be a list of all the ship's longcasts in the travel office at Collingwood, I simply had a browse through that and looked at which ships were doing the best deployments.
Like I said, I was lucky, most of the time you don't get to choose your draft and you might end up on a ship that is in refit, followed by work up, BOST and a Gulf trip. Whatever happens, embrace it, you are living the dream.
