    You can be a Ranger in the infantry in the Guard, you just ant be in the Ranger Regiment. That will usually ensue the "why makes someone a ranger argument"

      Do you think OP has even the slightest clue what that means?! Lol
      I was hoping this potential future officer would be able to conduct a simple Google search. If he did, he's ahead of the game for a 17 year old.

      +1. Accounting has one of the lowest unemployment rates. It also happens (usually CPA) to be an in-demand skill for federal law enforcement (1811 series) as well. I did forget to mention it but that list was not exclusive by all means. The good thing about accounting is one does not need to go to a brand name private school and rack up huge amounts of debt. State universities generally offer decent and well respected accounting programs.

          Yup thats why I changed my major from education to Accounting. It set me back about 3 years but hey I did what I had to do and hopefully I will be graduating next Spring.

I have a LS degree that is composed of computer programming, a class in engineering, sociology, and computer networking classes all mashed together into the only degree they form. I opt'ed for the LS degree because it lessened the amount of time until i could get a degree and I already have a career and in my line any accredited degree will do, whether nuclear physics or a BS in napping.

            I wanted the degree quicker so I could check the "i have a degree" box for my civilian and military positions, and it will help with the civilian promotion potential.

            Unless you are in a situation similar to mine....get a BS in a STEM area. As a side note, my masters degree is at least an MS.
            That is the same I did when I attended the BGS program at UCONN. An excellent adult education program.

            I focused on the IT track.

            Wow, I cannot believe its been more than 11 years ago that I left this place. That my degree has afforded me experience in three combat tours lol. Amazing, how life turns out at times.
