I don't believe what university you go told holds much weight. That's a good question for that forum I gave you though. As for doing all those things I have a BS in Aviation Technology and graduated with a 3.35 gpa. I hold a PPL with around a 100 hours and have a few volunteer / leadership experiences. On the ASTB I got a 7/7/6 61 which is pretty respectable score. All in all, I've waited around 3 year since I wanted to apply for OCS and not use BDCP( dumb decision, I know). With all the things in mind, I still have a very good chance at a slot. Basically be a well rounded individual and you'll have your shot.
Embry Riddle has a solid Aerospace Engineering program, with them being an Aeronautical University and all. Problem is that it is rather pricey.
Just some quick questions, how would a 17 year old Canadian living in the middle of butt fuck northern no-where get involved in the military? I would like to be somewhere about a year from now after I have been 18 for awhile, and then eventually into the Airforce. Initially wanted to being a pilot but I've put alot of thought into it and I think I would be better off as some kind of mechanic, or technician for avionics ( I think ) but I'd still like to fly someday, just not military. I'm mainly talking about combat jets, but I'm highly interested in helicopters as well. so yeah, I honestly don't know where to start here. I'm in my last year of high school, I live in Alberta, at the very top left corner of the province, my town has about a population of 4-4500 people. It is also surrounded by I think 3 or 4 native reserves.
Friendly people. I'm thinking i'd be best of asking a recruiter these questions, but what I would like to know now is the path to get there, would I be, like say in some kind of basic training for a few months, or what?
Happy Birthday, US Navy.
So I just got back from the Air Force recruiter, he had to reschedule yesterday due to an impromptu school function. I have to drop some weight, not over just close to borderline, and do some thinking. I also have to fill out an application form. One thing that the recruiter told me that I appreciate is that he won't try to push me through, and didn't make wild promises. Now I need to do a lot of praying and start getting into shape.
So i was chatting with a couple of pilots in the shuttle back to the dorms, and they were discussing when everyone found out what aircraft they were getting at the end of pilot school. Apparently, each person stands up front as their assignment is read to them. They said 2 people got RPAs. A guy said it was pretty much 50/50 what the reaction was when people get RPAs, but that they typically made a beeline for the nearest bar and started putting down shots after they got done.
Does the Navy let you pick your MOS, or is it like the other two branches excluding the army where it's "we'll try to get you what you want, but if we can't, go move that piece of furniture"
I'm seriously considering joining the USAF to gain citizenship and to give my life some direction, but i have no idea if it's a good idea or not, or what job within the air force i'd actually want to aim for.
As is probably typical of everyone who thinks about joining any air forcer, i'd like to be a pilot, but non-citizens can't be officers, so i'd need to do something else untill i gain citizenship if it even works like that.
Can anyone with a little more insight into how the USAF works give me some advice?
Are you able to back out in the recruitment process if they don't have your MOS? or is it by the time that comes into question and making it official, it's too late go back?
I don't think you can go back once you sign your papers. You're pretty much at their mercy. By chance, what are you interested in doing anyways?
Its either join the navy and do that, or go to college, and spend the next 4 years in debt working on getting my BSN. I would rather do 4 years with the navy as a corpsman, and get my RN after, it'd be cheaper, and I would be able to be productive much quicker.
If i joined and didn't get the MOS i desired/ or anything close to it, it would be a giant waste of time.
Qualified with M240B
Floater, look into the Air Force ROTC. It is the primary commissioning source of most Air Force officers, and you do not have to be a U.S. Citizen (at-least, for the first two years in the program). As for jobs, it would depend on what your interest is in. There is LARGE variety of different career paths available within the USAF, for both officers and enlisted men.
only problem is that rotc is cadets and thats about it
If devil docs are the only thing that's really for sale right now, ill probably keep my head towards the college route instead. (Shit, i need to start filling my apps out)
close combat uniform
Jesus fucking christ.
Doctors are fucking retarded, at MEPS.
Only thing I had on my medical record was a mole removal from when I was wee little. The mole turned out to be not cancerous, and this was specified on the sheets. No problems. Everything was hunky-dory with it.
BUT BECAUSE IT WAS AN INCOMPLETE EXCISION I NEED TO GET MORE PAPERWORK (IF IT EXISTS) AND HAND THAT IN TO THIS DOCTOR.
god fucking damn
On the bright side, I did p. good on my ASVABs.
