I have a BS, but my GPA wasn't quite high enough to go straight to OCS (not that that would be guaranteed with all the people applying).
Am I correct in assuming that I will start as an E-3 right off the bat? Or do I spend Basic as an E-1 then get promoted to E-3 after?
Going off that same vein, what is the probable (expecting a 3 month wait for A school) rate of advancement within that first 2 years of duty?
I go in for my check up physical, and swearing in to DEP next week! I am both nervous and excited at the same time. Any little tips to help me along in my possible career path? Started all the physical fitness stuff. what would be the minimum I should shoot for? Boot camp graduation Requirements? More?
Thank you all for your information and help.
