No, he won't. He's already said that he would be going to school after he got out. You're just trying to bring politics into this.

There are ads everywhere that say doing a job in the military will transition into civilian life. For example: If you where a computer programmer in the military, you could use that to get jobs.

I guess I sort of did bring politics into this, I just read the original post and saw someone trying to take the military as an alternative for paying for college and thought it was worth mentioning. I probably should have left the word "Republican" out but in all the news articles it said that in the title so I guess when I was regurgitating the info I sort of put it in there to.

As previously mentioned, ROTC. It is different than an enlisted, but if you do well enough, you can have school completely paid for. Another benefit to ROTC is that you don't have to contract (obligate yourself) to the military until your Junior year of college or offered a scholarship.

That cancer kid didn't get in, I found out, but it was unrelated to his cancer.


Here's what I do know from working with the recruiters: Things are getting very stringent these days. The Army, as well as most of the rest of the military, is over strength. My advice to you when you talk to a recruiter is to tell him you're willing to take a slot in a critical MOS if it means getting in. The recruiter will do everything he can via waiver to get you a day slotted at MEPS. Once you get to MEPS it's a whole different ballgame. They probably won't care about your feet, and you don't have to tell them about your lungs, but your arm will raise some flags. Depends on the doctor's say, really.

First and foremost, get those waivers. If you need any other help, PM me and let me know. I've worked some recruiting and will again after this semester ends.

Thanks for getting back to me, I really appreciate it. I'll ask for a slot in a critical MOS if I decide to try and enlist. I'll send you a PM if I run into anything. Once again, thanks for the advice and words of wisdom! I really appreciate it!

If I recall, even if you get a scholarship, you have until junior year without any obligation. Though if you leave after your junior year, you either have to pay back your previous years to the military, or enlist your ass.
