Hello everyone! This is my first post on here.

Anyway, i'm curious why you pick three MOS's, and I have another question regarding it.

Do you pick three MOS's because of availability? For instance, if your #1 pick isn't available for a very long time, you can fall back on your 2nd choice so you're not disappointed? I'd assume so, right?

Now for the other question, do I also just pick three so my recruiter knows which MOS's I want the most? Would he still be able to offer me an MOS contract that's not in my top 3 with no hassle?

I've been thinking about it, and i've been considering Security Forces more and more. It's not in my top 3 picks, and I'm wondering if the top three means anything at all. Like, would I have to go back to MEPS or something crazy like that? Or would he have to send some sort of request in that could prolong my ship date?

Any Poolees or Marines that have been in a situation where you wanted an MOS that wasn't in your top 3? Hopefully this entire post isn't difficult to understand. Sorry if it's everywhere.
