I think that happens a lot if you either don't know what MOS you want yet or if the one you want isn't open at the time. Should get that figured out soon. I was on an open contract until last week because none of my MOS choices were available. It should be relatively easy to change assuming your choices are open.

got a 61, doing motor t. i leave for boot in 2 months and im thinking about retaking the asvab, but not sure if i should just stick with motor t and wait until after i get out of boot to try to change it? i enlisted on an open contract so i dont really think it matters if i chose my mos now or not. or does it? lol

ABCs of the ASVAB
You can’t actually “fail” the ASVAB, but you can “fail” to achieve a high enough AFQT score to enlist in the service you want. If this happens that means your AFQT score was too low which — in turn means you need to work on one (or more) of four areas: math knowledge skills, arithmetic reasoning skills, reading comprehension skills, and word knowledge skills. These are the four subtests which are used to calculate your AFQT score. Parts II and III of this book are specifically designed to help you improve your scores on these four subtests.
Once you’re sure that you are ready, you can apply (through your recruiter) for a retest.
Minimum Waiting Times
ASVAB tests are valid for two years, as long as you are not in the military. In most cases, once your join the military, your ASVAB scores remain valid as long as you are in. In other words, except in a few cases, you can use your enlistment ASVAB scores to qualify for retraining years later.
After you take an initial ASVAB test (taking the ASVAB in high school does not count as an initial test), you can retake the test after 30 days. After the retest, you must wait at least six months before taking the ASVAB again.
When you retake the ASVAB, it’s not your highest score that counts, but rather the score on your latest test. If you score lower on the retest, that is the score which will be used for your military enlistment.
When you can/cannot re-take the test
The bad news is that you can’t retake the ASVAB on a whim or whenever you simply feel like it. Each of the services has its own rules concerning whether or not they will allow a retest:
Marine Corps: The Marine Corps will authorize a retest if the applicant’s previous test is expired. Otherwise, recruiters can request a retest as long as the retesting is being required because the initial scores (considering the applicant's education, training, and experience) do not appear to reflect his or her true capability. Additionally, the retest cannot be requested solely because the applicants initial test scores did not meet the standards prescribed for specific military job qualification.

73 on the asvab, my line scores qualify me for everything. I don't know what my job is yet because I'm not choosing my field till later, but I'm probably doing artillery.
