    Seems like you have more research to do. They're not done flying forever. These changes in pace are referred to as billets. I fly, and I fly my ass off. But my main job that takes 90% of my time is...

    If your goal is to join to fly, and just fly, do not fly for the Marines. I say again, do NOT fly for the Marines.

    That isn't to say it's not a great opportunity. However, there's a high chance...

    I might not have been very clear with my last post. I know there have been doubts about ability to serve well as a commissioned or enlisted Marine. My point meant to illustrate the idea that it's a...

    I'm late to the party but I'll add my input anyway. Definitely finish college while you're here now. You have no crystal ball that will tell you if you will easily get back into it if you leave.

    No medical platoon. If you get hurt enough to fall out of training, you go home. Re-attempts are at the discretion of the BnCO; some are invited to come back to the next class, some have to reapply...

    You can decline your commission up to the day you're supposed to take your oath. You'll **** off a lot of people, for sure, if you do that.

    Sounds like you answered your your own question, though.

    It's possible to switch contracts from ground to air after OCS. How easily it is done depends on how many are available after you're back. I guess it boils down to whether or not you're willing to...

    You'll learn plenty at The Basic School if you get there, and then you'll have to sort your top 20-something and hope your SPC agrees.

    I was about to say, "especially not with an NJP on your record" until I realized that your username was just a coincidence.

    GPA is going to hurt you big time. The OSO has no reason to BS or mislead you. I'd recommend you do/believe what they say. Was he asking you to go take the ASVAB to override your SAT scores?

    I hate to say it, but if you really want to be an officer, your chances are going to be in the Army. OSOs are flooded with applicants who don't need waivers, have high GPAs and are younger. My OSO...

    The reserves are an odd animal. The reserve unit local to me when I was in college had a Staff Sergeant as one of their platoon commanders.

    I've only had 2, but I know 4. They're pretty rare, and to be honest the only thing I notice is the voice in my ear telling me "down 20, 10, cleared below, cleared to land" is slightly higher pitch...
