I just got back from the recruiter (I called him and had him pick me up instead of waiting)
I'm a freshman in college. I spoke with a recruiter over the summer before school started but decided not to go. I haven't stopped thinking about it all year.Darkness, I really know how you feel (seriously), but you should think about it long and hard before you make any definitive decission. Take your time, what year are you?
Turning 19 in a couple of weeks.I wish you luck. Just make sure you are gonna be 18 by the time you get to MP school. I worked with a guy that was suppose to be an MP but he was 17 when he hit MP school so they gave him a new MOS.
Yeah, and I know the bs scams they pull, idealizing things, making things sound just right. I kept on asking persistent questiosn and he eventually said "look, kid, we're trained with marketing skills like a business manager. all else aside, it'll be the hardest thing you ever do, but it will be the best thing you ever do"The key to talking with the recruiter is to realize a couple points: They need you and they don't need you. Recruiters work off of a quota system so they won't waste a lot of time with someone who is baiting them.
Yep. Physically I'm ready. otherwise im notTip for bootcamp: You amount of preperation will prepare you. When you are there realize its just a giant mind game.
they are, they try to get buddy buddy with you and all of that crap. they don't care, and it IS a scam, but I realize this and still want it for other reasonsand the recruiter that called me (and presumably all of them) was like a sleazy car salesman
friggin a this is the hardest decision i've ever had to make (i haven't enlisted yet, but once i do i belong to the military).
