    Re: my recruiter isn't doing his job

    Ah yes you are correct. OP would've been 20 when said charge was brought against him.

      Exactly. I started talking to my recruiter in October 2010 and wasn't sworn in until May 2012. Patience, patience, patience. Push comes to shove, just go see your recruiter and have a talk with him. Ask him what the problem is and if there is anything you can do to help expedite the process.

          Thank you. I really want to do this so I'm willing to wait as long as possible. I just don't want to be left in the dark

Recruiters are so overwhelmed nowadays as so many people are trying to enlist and they have to prioritize who they can get in quickly without waivers etc. Good luck!
            Long story short no contracts and I did it for 3 years and they were giving contracts to freshman but none of the juniors or seniors. They weren't really trying to help and I was from the north and the school was in the south.

              This doesn't really make sense. Traditionally, ROTC "contracts" are signed when you are a Junior/Senior in college, not as a freshman.

              I agree with HR NCO. It sounds like there's more going on with your situation, whether it be on your end or the recruiters. Keep in mind that your recruiter is working with numerous other candidates that may have no issues to deal with. It's not uncommon for recruiters to push these applicants through first.

              Be patient and try to get everything in order on your end.

                I wasn't clear, I wanted a scholarship. There were no contracts available because of the military draw down. Yes, I will wait as long as I can.

                  Similar to others who have expressed this sentiment; WANTING to enlist does not constitute an emergency on the part of a Recruiter. I am NOT saying that SOME Recruiters aren't "lazy", (which is ultimately expressed in their end of year mission number), but "difficult" enlistments are shelved for rainy days when picket fence applicants aren't lined up at the door. No Recruiter wants to deal with a moral waiver (which has nothing to do with MEPS btw), when they are actively working 5 applicants with no extra issues. Service is NOT a RIGHT. We are an EMPLOYER, and we can be as choosey as regulation allows, and frankly it gives our RRNCOs a good deal of latitude to make autonomous decisions in this regard.

                    Yes it had to be because you are from up North. JK.
