    So I will Graduate in August with A BS degree and I have wanted to fly ever since I was a wee little one.

    My dilemma is that I have talked to the AF and they state that in order to get into the Pilot Program my entire college career I had to have a 3.6 GPA. UGH!!
    I have that now yet I did not have that when I started.

    Questions that I pose are as follows:
    Chances of flying C-130s or the like in AF
    Chances of flying helios in Army/Marines
    Chances of flying Navy

    Facts: 6' 250 currently I have been dropping weight since OCT was 290 still working for 210 :x:
    No ROTC A) worked a full time job through college to support myself
    B) Could not make time for school work and ROTC i know /myself
    Will not go enlisted, do not want to waste my degree I want officer OCS OTS whatever.
    Have flight experience 50 hours from 2003
    Certificates have expired have no problem retesting
    Fast learner good adaptability I can do anything I want to I feel
    Tried AF Academy when I was in Hike School got denied due to asthma when i was 8 no longer have it and have not been on meds since I was 10.

    do not want to go Reserve

    Willing to Fly anything
    Willing to go Career
    I want to serve
    This Corporate Bullshit I am dealing with now is not for me I want some other kind of Bullshit
    Any honest opinions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for all that serve!

    Don't discount Reserves. There are some active reserve flying positions.

    I think the marines guarantee a pilot slot if you join up. Just make sure you do a thorough walkaround before you go flying :run:

    MAW? Help on the Acronym plz

    Understanding on some info needs to be withheld thanks for the input
    When I said AF Academy I meant the Air Force Academy as a college

    Understanding "Property of US GOVT." and Preserving Democracy versus Living in it

    As For stress on finals...i.e. add finals plus assitant mangager dealing with corporate inspection70hr work weeks, Adapting from working at a hardware store in management to working at a bank in management. Management is management anywhere you go yes, Management style changes and that is tough to change when entering a new work environment.

    easy to say hard to do would thinking on your feet while following orders easily describe it?

    I believe it means Maximum Accepted Weight.

    I know for 6'1 it's 205, so you'll probably have to be 200 or lower. That can be circumvented however with a body fat waver if you are a broly and have a small waist.

    coast guard is all about the helos and c-130s

    you have to be an officer though.

    so get in to qualify for OCS
