As of now I am a Jr. in college studying both Psychology and History but recently came to realize that I would like to join the USCG after graduation, doing my best to become an AST.
Now I know that neither major has much to do with the career, but I'd like to know if I have a real chance based on the following:
-I have been an Ocean Lifeguard in NJ for 5 seasons and have real experience in making rough water rescues, administratoring CPR and applying first aid.
-Lifelong swimmer (2yrs of which at the College level) and track/XC runner in HS.
- Very comfortable in the ocean
-Work out often with a large emphasis on cardio and calisthenics
- I've worked under a contractor for a bit and have a good grasp on using tools
- I genuinely want to serve our country
I am not very strong in Math or Computer workings
I (very stupidly) have a class B Misdemeanor for Possession of Marijuana from when I was 18. This has been expunged/sealed and I haven't smoked since, but any government job can see it on my record
Thank you for any and all advice, it is all appreciated!
