    Finish high school, last year.

    Go into the military, for 4-6 years, marines. While doing that go to college. Finish as much college as I decide (at least bachelors 4 years). Either stay in the army or be a police officer for a year or two. Then apply for a job in the FBI.

    Opinions? Discuss? Criticize

    how are you going to college while you're in Iraq?

    How are you going to be in the Army, if you're a Marine?

    the man speaks the truth you will be in iraq for a while the best way to go for college reasons is the navy or air force. i know for a fact that the navy is paying for all your college while your in and the GI bill is pretty high

    more realistic:

    4 years marine career

    4 years college

    1 years police academy and training and probation

    2 year police

    then maybe perhaps with distinction and an actually skill, such as computer science degree, you can get hired at the FBI.

    Given my current deployment schedule I will be deployed for over half my 5 year contract. I will miss every major holiday except the 4th of July.

    You've got to be damned determined to reach your goals.

    Your plan is one big clusterfuck that makes absolutely zero sense.

    better idea: go to college, join the Marines, join the FBI.

    It'll work MUCH better that way. Quit your fucking whining about college.
    Until you have to bust your ass all day earning shitty wages while paying a mortgage on a shitty house because you didn't finish college, then complain.

    Quitting college is fucking dumb.
    Guess how I know this?

    I've got a tentative date of summer of 06, but if I can get my PFT score quicker up i'll ship a lot sooner, I really want at least a first class PFT before I ship.

    What was your initial PFT score before boot and then your final PFT score at the end of boot?

    This is almost exactly what I did. I currently have five months left in the Corps, and for the past three and a half years, I've been going to college on the Corps' tab and receiving a security clearance and training for free.

    When I go on terminal leave, I will have to decide if I'm going to work for NASA or FBI -- Both have offered me very nice jobs. I would definitely suggest doing what you're thinking about; just make sure you get an MOS that is going to help you once you get out. I'm an 0656 / 0651 - Tactical Data Networking. That obviously helped land a job.
