I took my ASVAB in 83. What is "Line Score"?

Determine what you need personally to develop in yourself. What fascinates you? Consider how the MOS you choose, will assist in developing life skills and job skills. Look at College Benefits, even if you never considered College for yourself, you may find even a 2 year degree will bring a major change in what you are able to get involved in. Believe in the fact, that what you are doing, will dramatically change how you view your future, and increase the level of challenge you chose to pursue. Take a challenging course, they are there to teach you!.And you can really learn a lot if you apply yourself. If not satisfied with what is offered, consider studying and retesting for greater choices. You are already past many blockades to being willing to join up. Congrats on taking up the challenge! It is very rewarding. Oh, GO ARMY! (Just teasing).

The army will pay for your tuition once you get in, most of those i know do online college. Pick something you would enjoy doing, but not one of your hobbies. I used to love working on computer/network problems, now its all work to me. If you do join, remember its a mind game. The 1st two years are the hardest. After that its the easiest job in the world. I get paid alot of money for doing nothing most of the time.

I did my time in the Air Force, make sure you pick MOS's that you will want to do, don't pick one you are not interested in just to fill in the blank, because chances are, that is the one you will get stuck with....just my .02 worth.

Take your time and choose wisely, getting stuck with a job that blows for the next 4-6 years would be depressing. Also know where those jobs can get assignments, you could get a good job and get stationed somewhere you will not like. Take me for example I love my job, Electronic Warfare, but I got stationed in Omaha, Nebraska...NOT cool (Born & raised in Hawaii). Feels like i've wasted 4 years of my youth in that cornhole, I deploy as often as I can to get out of there lol.

Air Force babyyyy

As others mentioned think about your options and what you plan on doing after the military or what you will do as a carrer in the military. If you plan on college, some MOS offer better tuition package, plus signing bonus. If you plan on a carrer, think of a job that would benifit you after the service (mechanic, logistics, etc.).
