    I’m 37 years old with no prior military experience. Am I able to join the Reserves and specifically, am I able to become an ME? Thank you for any assistance anyone can offer.

    If you have a skill set that directly translates into a CG job, you can enter under the Direct Entry Petty Officer Program. The age max for this is 40. Another option would be if you have a minimum of 60 credit hours, then you could enter under the Direct Entry Education Program. The age max for this is also 40. If neither of these apply to you, then you would be too old, as the cut off for a regular Reserve enlistment is 31. As for going into the ME rating, you can apply for any rating you want as long as you have a qualifying ASVAB score and meet any necessary medical requirements

    Thank you very much for the reply, with my very limited college and lack of experience it sounds like I may be out of luck. No exceptions to the rule?

    I'd say an age waiver is unlikely. If you were 32-33, you could probably get one, but 37 is a bit high. All that being said, I'm not a recruiter, so your best bet would be to check w/ one to make certain

    You can't ship to full basic training at 32 or older - no waivers will be considered. DEPOT is only for those that qualify for the specific programs. You'll need to get your 60 college credits, qualify for a rating, obtain a vacant duty location and attend DEPOT before turning 40.
