Hey everyone, I'm 25 years old, I graduated with a BA in History in December and I have no no clue what to do with the rest of my life. I thought about joining the Navy before I started college, and now that I'm done I'm thinking about it again. Everyone says that if you have a Bachelors you can go in as an Officer, but the recruiter I spoke to briefly over the phone the other day said that it was competitive. My GPA wasn't great (a 2.92) and since it's competitive I'm curious about my chances. Also, if I enlist, how feasible is it to become an officer later on down the road? I was thinking about this because I'm interested in working in Public Affairs and she said you typically have to have served before doing that. I also have some questions about the physical aspects of enlisting in the military. I'm in pretty good shape, but I'm working towards being in excellent shape. I went on a Navy website and printed off their fitness training plans to work on. I know this is a stupid question, but the requirements for how many sit-ups/push-ups you can do... is there a time limit? I know that sounds kind of ridiculous, but I hate assumptions. Also, I'm not the strongest swimmer. I'm starting lessons next month, and I was curious as to how that would affect me. Any help anyone can give me would be so appreciated.
