I'm having a tough time deciding between officer and enlisted (again...) I got a 1500 on my sat (530 reading 500 math and 470 writing) and have yet to take my SAT. The reason I am feeling this way is because i looked at my family members. While my grandparents do think becoming an officer would be a better choice for me they both enlisted and are doing well. My father and uncle enlisted and my uncle is living comfortably and had 3 kids in the house at one point. My dad currently has 3 kids in the house including me and while we aren't necessarily debt free or not worrying about money we are doing better than a good portion of people. Now with the college and ROTC. I am going to take my ACT next time its available (not very often in PA) to see if i do better in that aspect. I will still try to apply to a college that offers AFROTC and has a good comp sci program(having trouble finding a school like such besides Penn state). Another thing that comes with college is motivation and responsibility. Whilst I feel I am responsible enough for college what come in to question is my motivation. In school if a subject interest me I can just sit there in class and do really well in said class, no homework needed. The problem comes in with things like foreign languages and other linguistic subjects where i dont do so hot yet despite getting Cs and Ds compared to my As and Bs in my other courses I am simply not motivated due to being spoiled in the aspect of not having to study many fields. Most colleges in my area require a second language as well which i would dread yet i still recognize is just a part of life. Another point that comes to me is weather or not I want to do 4 more years of college especially with my current levels of motivation. I feel i would much rather just get out there and do something rather than sit here and learn like i have been constantly for the last 11 years of my life leading me to think that enlist after school would be good option for me to get out into the computer field. I would like to get suggestion on my current gameplan or just suggestion in general. My game plan being(#1 being what i will try first every subsequent one being a back up): 1. Seeing if I can get a afrotc scholarship to a good comp sci school and becoming an officer 2.Enlisting, if i like military life so much as to further my career i will go to college while in the reserves (possibly still active) and become and officer through a program such as green to gold 3. Just enlisting in itself and then going to lead a civilian life as always thanks in advance Sorry if it was ranty i am trying to get my thoughts straight whilst i write this.
