    Not really sure what your asking, you might want to re phrase your question, it doesn't make any sense.

    It is more about what you want to do, what you want to be involved in, how determined you are, your success and what is presented at the finish line. This forum cannot answer your question. You have to answer that question. Some random idiot like me cannot answer that, nor should you rely on a random person like me.

    Navy and Air Force only want technical majors. The Army is more flexible as far as taking a broad range of majors and it also depends on what kind of specialty you want to get into, what interests do you have and what do you want to do in the military?

    I think I get what you mean by this; however, it might be a little bit of a broad declaration for the newbies on the forum. I'll add in a few clarifying remarks...

    There are plenty of officers in the Air Force and Navy who have undergraduate degrees in non-technical fields.

    It may be more difficult to get a scholarship as an English major, but it's not impossible to get commissioned. Needs of the service always dictate, of course, but many career fields in both of these branches do not have specific degree requirements. The service academies-save for USMMA-also offer humanities degrees; although, you have to take a considerable math/science core curriculum (even English majors get BS degrees).

    I have a BA in international studies, and I went into the Air Force.

    In the end, as others have stated, it's about how you'd prefer to serve.

    DS graduated non-tech in May, commissioned 2nd LT AF, with a UPT slot. OBTW, he was AFROTC scholarship.

    Yes, AF and Navy tend to want tech majors, @80-85%, but they don't just want ONLY tech majors.

    This is a case where newbies need to investigate from an academic perspective. Want to go non-tech, you can, but a 3.0 cgpa and a 1070 SAT best sitting (AFROTC does not superscore), will not be enough to cut it.

    Deshawn, it l get the impression that you are writing a lot of these posts using a cellphone. I'm going to assume that your phone autocorrected and changed what you intended to type (the word "Have") to the word "Face". Then your reply would be "I have been investigating science majors, for it has always been my best subject"; and that statement does make sense.
