    before joining the military? Sorry if this has been done to death already. I'm just in the process of picking everyone's brains.

    I'm not trying to jump on the bandwagon, I'm not even making my way to MEPS for another 2 weeks, but don't jock it until like after BMT... Or w/e it is for the Marines...




    I think I'm pretty well informed, I'm sure after the fact there will be something that I'll be like "ahhhh fuck" but it's all good. Part of the process I guess lol.

    make sure the job you think you're getting is typed correctly, not hand written. say the job you want is hand written as 2s0x2. but the typed job is 2s0x1. big difference. you will get the job that is typed. i got screwed.

    recruiters are full of shit and I should have shopped around until I got what I wanted instead of a promise.
