    I got a 97 on the preASVAB, and expect to get a similar score on the regular. Unfortunately, the Air Force is pretty selective, and I have a couple medical issues that may not be waived. If This happens, I will be looking into the Army. My question is, what are some good jobs in the Army that require a high score and are in need? I am trying to get a feel of what I would like to do, and there are too many to go through each one on usmilitary.about.com....

    what medical issues? The army is more lenient than the AF regarding waivers, but there are some definite limits.

    Also, what kind of jobs interest you? With a high ASVAB score you can pick pretty much anything that your security and physical/medical issues will allow.

    Depends on if you can get a clearance or not.

    I should be able to get a clearance. All of my family are US citizens with great credit, as am I. I have only ever gotten a speeding ticket, no other law problems, and have never done drugs. As far as medical issues, its a rod in my femur that really doesnt restrict anything. I've been told by specialists that the leg will be strong than the non-rod leg. I know if the AF waiver goes through, Im looking at a wide range, from loadmaster to cryptological linguist to EOD.

    crypto-linguist can be extremely boring but...

    you get to live in monterey, CA on the beach for 6 months to 1.5 years, and if you keep your language up you can get a pretty good job depending on what you want to do after you get out of the military.

    But I hope you like to work in buildings with no windows...

    You haven't taken the ASVAB yet. Complete that and get a real score first.

    I took the PSAT 2 years ago and did amazing, I took the real SAT earlier this month and didn't do so hot.

    I'm not too sure about having a rod getting waived easier in the army. You'd have a greater chance getting things waived in the air force id think.

    I dunno, in 2000 the Air Force was turning people down left and right for anything... They can "afford" to be picky. If you know what I mean, smaller branch and more people seem to want to join AF. So kinda like they get to relaly pick who they want and turn down whoever they please.

    If you got a 97 on the practice, you'll score higher on the real thing. My Army recruiter told me the same phrase and he was right.

    As for your question..

    CMF 96: INTEL
    - 96R ground surveillance systems operator (EL 85 and SC 95)
    - 96H common ground station operator (SC 95 and ST 105)

    CMF 97: COUNTER/HUMAN INTEL
    - 97B COUNTERINTEL agent :bowdown: Something I always wanted to do but never had the score for (ST 105).. but I enjoy mobbing in a Stryker

    CMF 98: SIGINTEL
    - 98G crypt. linguist (ST 95)

    No such thing as 96R anymore, or any '96, 97 or 98' series for that matter, all MI MOSs are 35 series now. and 35T is the best of all ;)

    91Ds always require high scores, surgical tech. if you can handle some blood and guts it's the graviest job in the army. You can pretty much go from working in a cushy hospital all the way up to a line medical unit ducking bullets if that's your choice. A good mid-ground is a CSH or field hospital, where you still get the work and experience but still have heat/air and running water 24/7 and work hand in glove with surgeons and RNs. However, there is a LOT of standing so not sure how your leg's going to hold up. It's easy to get a 8-12 hour stretch standing the whole time. $.02

    I don't care for medical type jobs. For some reason I have no interest in the medical field at all.

    and dood c'mon be real.. if you've scored a 97 on your preASVAB are you really worried about your job selection or you just rubbing it in that you scored a 97?..besides if you've scored a 97 shouldn't you be taking the iniative to research the jobs that you qualify for instead of relying on a sub-forum? speak to a recruiter from each of the branches and see what they have to offer you in the fields you may be interested in.
