    So, prior active duty Army.  I was in the Army from 2003-2012.
    The Bad:

    -Waaaaaay back in 2004 I got a summarized Article 15 (Captain's Mast?) for MIP. 
    -Waaaay Back in 2002 I tried MJ once, thought it was gross, looked around at my life, joined the Army.

    The Good:

    -Almost finished with BA with 3.5 GPA
    -ASVAB GT 135
    -I want to go FS
    -RE-1

    So, is that NJP gonna shoot my chances all to crap?

    You might have to retake the asvab depending on how old it is, but itll be up to the recruiter about the Captain's Mast. It was a long time ago so it probably wouldn't be a big deal if they see you as a great overall character. Now however, the CG is strict about Alcohol Incidents.

    FS is a plus.

    Getting in with a BA would be a plus because then you could come in as an E-3

    How old are you?
    Take what you like and leave the rest behind.

    Currently 29 years old. Will be 30 when I finish School (I know, right on the edge). I am planning on about 6 months of DEP to finish school if I can get in. And yeah, I regret that alcohol incident since the day it happened. I dug a trench all the way around the barracks and lined it with railroad ties and filled it with gravel. It was a tough 2 weeks. Another thing that seems to crop up with mixed messages is the TIS issue. Some people are saying 6 years is the max to come in without a rating listed on the ORL, on the uscg website it says "if you were discharged in pay grade E-3 or below with six years or less of prior active service" So, I dunno

    I do believe TIS you are over the limit. We have a couple of former abs current recruiters on the forum. I'm they'll be along.

    Your background looks fine to me. Although I don't know what MIP is. It looks like you have 9 years of active duty time. What was your MOS? Were you a cook in the Army?
