    Hi,
    I would like to make a career in military intelligence, but I can't decide if I should apply to West Point or Annapolis. I realize that there are more opportunities to get into Army intel, but the Navy is also appealing to me.
    Could you please explain what kinds of tasks an Army Intel officer might have, and what things I should focus on now (I am a senior in high school who plans to apply to a SA during my first year of college.)
    Also I am almost fluent in Mandarin. Would this be more useful to me in one branch over another?
    Thanks!

    The Navy would be able to use Mandarin, but beyond that, I don't know.

    Both Navy and Army offer a Major in Chinese. For HS focus on getting accepted to a SA. If you can take four years of a strategic language while in HS, that is great and beneficial. Your body of work at the SA will impact/influence your branch. Very few at Navy get Intel right out of school. You can switch later and being fluent in a critical language will help get you there. Do some searches on branching. You can find number of those who branched Intel.
