I am 31, got a masters degree, married with no kids, naturalized citizen of Nigerian origin and about to achieve my personal dream of serving. I'm joining the guard and just took the ASVAB. Should I press my recruiter to get me into OCS so I can start right after BCT? Is it better to get listed for OCS before I sign the contract or go to BCT first, and then try to get OCS? Your advice will be appreciated.
