    I am hoping there is an available ME position here in Georgia. I'm currently a senior in college and I have a 2.93 GPA because of being dumb my freshman year. Physically I can achieve greater than the minimum standards but I guess I just need my mind eased that my GPA wont be a killer going the enlisted route. Thank you guys for your time.

    As long as you have a HS diploma, you can enlist.

    Thanks for the reply! Another question I have is if the job I want is not available in my current state am I able to join in another state?

    You can, but you're on the hook for any travel over 100 miles round trip. I don't recommend this for junior members as it can take a real bite out of your monthly pay
