A few reliable resources in my ROTC dept. have told me that being a Foreign Language stud is somewhat of a way to be somewhat encouraged (to be put very lightly) to pursue the Special Forces branch of the Army at the appropriate time. How true is this? The reason I ask is because I'm minoring (possibly double majoring) in German, I'm one of my unit's top choices for CULP next year, and I never before seriously considered the career path (I actually am one of the few cadets probably ever seriously considering Chem Corps as one of my top 5 branches). I was surprised to be spoken to about this considering hmy 265-ish PT score doesn't exactly scream "I'm the perfect candidate to be talked to by his cadre about a Special Operations career". How accurate is this though? I would certainly take the opportunity to branch SF at O-3 if offered, especially if I get to learn and practice a whole bunch of foreign languages.
