WOW... i swear in on monday at the MEPS... i have been researching this diligently for the last few months... one thing you need to take care of is the ASVAB test. not a whole lot of ppl tell you to study for it or even to prepare for it. This test determines what your mos COULD be. The Corps doesn't give an MOS (job) unless it is available at the time so unless you qualify and it is available you cannot do just anything. I am wanting to enter the data systems mos and i have to do well on the ASVAB and there has to be a spot open for me to get in. So the better you do on the ASVAB the better chance you have of not being the guy or girl that hates what he does for 4 or six years.
another thing that you may want to prepare for is the information that you will HAVE to learn in training... I think that i will learn it now before i leave in Feb for training so that when i get down there i will be able to focus on the things that i couldn't learn or didn't know that i should.
I would reccomend this site for tips and you can even do a practice ASVAB that i would recomend.
if you need anything or have any questions about The Corps pm me and i will get back to you asap. I will give you a walkthrough of the MEPS when i get back on wed. also my email and my messenger is listed in my profile.
the site is http://www.military.com/Recruiting/H...13387,,00.html
i would recomend doing all ten steps i did all of them and it really helped on getting me prepared for the Corps. My recruiters told me that they could tell i did research cause i knew my *crap*.
and good luck recruit
