    it's not too bad for an undergrad degree. masters is much more expensive and it doesn't help nearly as much.

    You shouldn't worry about school until you are out of tech school and have completed your CDCs.

    TA isn't supposed to pay for a full 4 year degree, it's supposed to pay for a couple classes a semester while you work. Use your GI bill if you want to take 18 credit hours a semester.

    well i've already got 2 years done so community college is outta the question

    also...apparently it only takes 6 months to complete cdc's and get 5 skill level as a linguist :dunno:


    :edit: i know im jumping the gun a little bit but i just cant wait to get the fuck out of this place and take normal classes with real teachers who speak english :embd:

    You're assuming you will grad linguist school.

    bingo....high washout rate
    well it depends how fast you can get all the tasks in your 623 complete before you can get 5 level status
    plus you dont just show up and get cdcs the first day and it depends where you go

    shit im one deep and now in 7 level upgrade with no one to sign me off and no one to supervise to be signed off on the tasks at hand lol

    have fun with all that training for your -5 level then.

    1 or 2 months after i got my -5 level, they added about 200 more duty tasks to my 623. i was so glad that i finished them as quickly as possible.
