  • should i do it now,or later?

    hello,new hopefull here.
    well,i have another 6 months of trade school left,and id rather not leave before i get my degree,so im pondering with myself if i should sign up now,or later towards the end. what do you guys,and gals think?
    so far what ive read on here,is that i wouldnt find out my ship date untill AFTER ive picked my mos,but like i said,i cant really leave till schools done. And i really dont wanna have to get some sort of waiver holding me for a year,i wanna do it asap. call me crazy,but basic just looks fun!
    thanks everyone

    Enlisting and shipping to Basic Training are two separate events. In fact, if you contact a recruiter right now you probably won't be able to enlist for another month, and likely the soonest training date would be three months later. Thus, even if you try very hard you may not be able to ship any earlier than six months hence. Thus, I would recommend enlisting now.
