    If your goal is to become an officer, the reserves/National Guard/rotc are your best bet. It is not realistic to think you'll get your bachelors on active duty in a reasonable amount of time. In...

    Assuming you are not immature for your age, you may find yourself in a leadership position in boot camp. Even 18 year olds joining the Marine Corps are often not the most mature in the world. I...

    If you don't have much going on in your civilian life, I'd suggest Active Duty for the job security/full experience... and this is coming from a prior reservist. While your goal to become a BJJ World...

    Be mindful that infantry is one of the most sought after jobs in the Marine Corps and usually is the first to fill-up. It may be necessary for you to wait until the Fall to sign an infantry contract...

    The armed forces don't care about your sexual orientation, so no concerns on that end.

    I can only really speak to deployments, but Marine infantry typically deploys for 7 months. Obviously special units do their own thing. Optempo varies by need, but they try to keep it reasonable....

    Age waivers are possible, and you won't know until you speak with either a recruiter or OSO. If all else fails, don't write off another branch.

    You can ship over your weight. I did, and know a bunch of other people who did. If you pass the IST, you shouldn't be dropped to PCP, especially if you are crushing it like you currently are.
