    "Your day will include a urinalysis (drug test), medical exam, eye test, hearing test, strength test, security interview, weight check, body-fat measurement (if you exceed the weight on the published weight charts), security clearance interview, meeting with a job counselor, reviewing enlistment options and possible enlistment incentives, taking the enlistment oath, and signing the Delayed Enlistment Program (DEP) contract. Oh, yeah..... intermixed in between all of this you'll fill out lots of forms and do lots and lots of waiting"

    security clearance interview, what exactly is that like?

    I spent my time in the communications-computer AFSCs, operations and programming, both great jobs. You'll need to take the EDPT to qualify for some of the positions, so bone up on your algebra. And don't be surprised if there's a long wait list for tech school, it's fairly competitive.

    They'll inquire about any travels you've made outside the US, and any drug usage. The latter isn't an automatic disqualifier, but it may hinder receiving a high security clearance.

    A GTEP is best -- open general is a good way to be a cop or a cook. But hey, I've known guys without a GTEP who had great jobs.

    Ask for a 2E, 3C, or the new 3D job. 3D will be the 2E and 3C combined.
