UPDATE




i figured I would update you all on my situation...

I ended up getting a call back from my recruiter. turns out the academic waiver I submitted for was declined. so basically, I was turned down because I received a D+ in advanced algebra my junior year.

to all you high school kids who think high school doesn't matter: be careful, It will bite you in the ass

I am going back to college to take Algebra, Calculus, and Trigonometry. hopefully at the end of the semester, I can resubmit my waiver, with some college math scores, and a few good references and get back into the nuke program. In the mean time I am on the Q & J list (qualified, no job.) in case an Air traffic control position opens up.

hopefully things will turn around.

You almost failed algebra and think you'll make it through the nuke program? Good luck in whatever you choose but maybe a more realistic job in the Air Force would suit you better.

technically yes, but the class was a group of all my buddies, and we screwed around all the time. I could've breezed through the class if i tried.

when i took the assessment test for college a few weeks ago, the counselor told me I had the highest math score she had ever seen

As a prior SeaBea (CB) I agree with the above statement and so that you are aware it can be done in any rate, I do make pretty close to six figures and have a nuke degree from the Navy as well. ALL courtesy of the SeaBee's.

As far as the marines go I have several friends who are marines and I like those jarheads alot. Most of the time its a square deal, we make sure they have a roof over thier heads and they help watch our asses as well .

And if you end up somewhere where the alchohol is not so plentiful, come look us up and if you're nice we may give you some of our homemade . But don't bring that joke about the marines being the mens department of the Navy with you our Seals might just have to kick your ass for telling it.

not sure if anyone's fallowed this but I have a final update

a few weeks ago I got a call from my recruiter... an hour later I was on my way up to MEPS... again. turns out an air traffic control position opened up, and I jumped on it.

so I signed my contract, swore in, and I leave for basic July 6.
