    Re: Ged and 48 on ASVAB

    What's this FEMA deal? I have a GED but only 6 credits but my recruiter tells me there is a Tier II spot for me and to wait till I get in to do the rest of my degree. I took the ASVAB lastnight and scored 91. Talked to my recruiter this morning and asked if the score would help me with MOS choices and was told my GED is still gonna hold me back as far as MOS goes...but dang if I can get the credit hrs to go in as a Tier I and do it in a couple weeks...would that not be the best option?

        First off, thats straight BS! Who did you pay $600 to?????? Well guess what you got screwed, FEMA courses are FREE of charge and because you live in NYS, the NYS Board of Education Office will charge you $100-$125 to convert them onto a transcript. I wish you would post who charged you that $600!

          Why would i lie about it. Fema charged me $688 for being no military 1-16 credits. and they send me an unofficial transcript to my house and an official transcript to my recruiter and another to the Board of ed. because i really have a reason to lie on an online forum....

            Ok this is to much. Your either lying or you got hammered! I have taken over 150 FEMA courses, more over I have let many applicants use my laptop to take them for FREE! Would you like the link?????? I will post it for EVERYONE to see! Some recruiters are running a scam on that in my area and I make sure I detour Applicants to other recruiters when I hear something like this. FEMA does not charge for IS COURSES! They send you a transcript upon request. First off, slow your role and watch your mouth! I'm not here to judge you, What I was saying is WHO TOOK THAT CASH FROM YOU? because the courses are free! The only thing you need to pay for is the FEE to get them translated OUTSIDE has NOTHING to do with FEMA! So either you want my advise and help or you want to be another person MISLEAD and TAKEN advantage of! YOU CHOOSE!

              I dont take kind to being called a liar, and u was indeed charged $688 and he gave me a receipt too and showed me the paper work that said how much it cost for military and non military. I posted and got 16 packers at fine each a certificate for each course individually then a received an unofficial transcript. a w week later I re took my asvab got a 60, another week later I'm enlisted

                        hey, so I wanted to ask you I'm trying to join the national guard unfortunately I have a GED and I am in the same situation as the other guy in the forum, I finished 15 classes of the FEMA but I am told by FEMA that I have to pay hundreds of dollars in order to get a transcript for the 15 college credits. Is it really the only way?
