    Enron, if you are not in the military, or not a vet of the military, I'd suggest you get your ass out of this fucking forum if you don't have anything constructive to say.

    And for the OP.

    I believe that a CS degree is ONE of the few degrees that the USAF actively looks for. I cannot say for sure what programs are available via student loan repayment, but I believe there IS something available.

    Enron John You can indeed voice your opinion but to blatantly start spewing bullshit is fucking stupid especially in the military forum, yes yes call me a noob call me this call me that I DONT GIVE A FUCK so now that thats out of the way. To the thread starter there is a joining the military thread that is a sticky at the top of this forum. Read that and come back with some specific questions and you'll get a better response. There is info on Officers as well. Quick answer for ur questions YES so long as your degree is a bachelors ur good to go, and from what current officers on this forum have told me they have LOW interest loans to help pay off school debt, the loans are gonna be WAYYY lower than anything you see at school or a regular bank.

    CO as in commanding officer? You won't need to worry about that for about 5 years once you are in.

    I read through it a bit, but my specific questions are basically: What will I be doing once I get in, and can I get them to pay off my student loans.

    Enron Were ur friends officers or enlisted ? What service were they in ? Those two questions change everything. For the thread starter as a commisioned officer you will do watever you're MOS dictates while leading the enlisted personel under your command, depending on the service you go into you may or may not get to choose your MOS.

    They are just referred to as Officers. CO implies a commanding officer which comes after you are promoted to captain. (I am speaking about the Army only I don't know how it is with the other branches).

    What you will do will depend on which branch of the military you join and what your MOS is.

    The irony in someone who has the username Enron John accusing another organization of lying.

    I'm curious as to how your "officer friends" were lied to.

    Alright, Enron John, this is a MILITARY FORUM. For people who wish to LEARN AND DISCUSS the military. As a military member, I want to tell you to GTFO. As an avid OTer, I wish to keep an open mind to other opinions, so voice it if you wish. That's fine. But don't come in here, spewing BS you have no knowledge about.

    If you don't want to respect the military, get the fuck out of here, go back to Off Topic and spew your bullshit there. Is that understood?

    No you can't, there is a difference between posting an opinion and trolling, you're doing the latter and that is a bannable offense in this forum.

    Now get the fuck out of this forum you pacifist piece of shit.

    These are all very basic questions, read this post and thoroughly read the information at every link: http://forums.offtopic.com/showpost.php?p=42073294&postcount=11

    You can get into OCS with any 4 year degree as long as it's from an accredited university, it doesn't matter what the subject is, there are people that enroll in bullshit degree programs like "bachelor of science in turf grass science" which can be finished very quickly just so they can apply, so you're fine with your computer science degree.
