    Re: Confused about OCS vs Specialist

    collk22, I am only 23 and I feel confident as a leader- however I am not confident in being placed in the top 10% of OCS- thus guaranteeing my dream list job as MI Officer. Maybe that's just a risk I don't want to take right now. I think enlisting as a 35F is the best fit after thinking hard about it. I just wanted to become an Officer so bad throughout College it seems foriegn to doubt it. I would rather go into a job that I know I would enjoy with the Guard and then pursue Officer later. It took me about 2 weeks to look over both paths, so for anyone out there going through the same process- really think through what YOU want to get out of the Guard. I want to go to AIT for the experience and training. OCS isn't a now or never thing- just don't lose sight of your goal, if you really want Officer- you'll get it.

    Thank You!

      MI isn't as cool as it sounds. If your state doesn't have an MI unit, then your life, both enlisted/officer, will be boring as you'll be sitting in a staff section somewhere.
