    ok, im pretty sure that im failing out of bu this semester. it wasnt because i was stupid, but more because ive become pretty lazy in college. now, if i fail, there is a 90 percent chance im joining the marines. i was just wondering if i will have higher rank since i have 8 credits.

    also, can you guys please give me some other random information. im planning on joining as active, and not one of the reserves

    and i just found the sticky, but can you answer one more question i had that i didnt find in the thread- whether or not taking college classes as an adult carries the same weight as taking them as an 18 year old

    You need 15 college credits to get PFC (E-2).

    PFC is the highest rank that the Corps will guarantee you in your contract, there are no exceptions and it doesn't matter if you have 15 credits, 40 credits, or a PHD in nuclear physics... you're not going to get anything higher than PFC.

    As far as the military is concerned, an 18 year old is an adult.

    i already made up my mind, and the fact that i more than likely failed out of school makes it even more deifinite. ive wanted to join since i was 16, but my parents would never have let me.

    what i meant by the school question is if you take college courses at 30, lets say, does it carry the same weight than if you take them as a freshman at 18

    College credit is college credit. How old are you ?

    edit: If ur 30 like ur last post implies u will have to worry more about wiavers for age and possible bf% and shit more than ur credits

    i messed up though, i should have joined right after i finished high school or after i graduated. dam now i regret slacking off

    EDIT: and is Iraq as miserable as it sounds? i know there is a chance i might perform service elsewhere, but its most definately gonna be in iraq since im joining as active and not as reserve

    This is where you wait for an answer from TRN or one of the other guys that are out there right now, Good Luck with whatever you decide.

    when i was in afghan it wasnt too bad. there were pretty shitty times but overall not that bad. iraq on another hand is a whole other story. i never went to iraq, just afghan.
