I'm going to be plainly honest. I'm beginning my research here (besides website scoping) because I don't know where else to get good info and moreover, the info they don't tell you. I have a very promising career in political communications already ahead of me, but my financial situation is proving to be a greater achilles heel than I ever expected. I became unexpectedly financially independent too. I've predominantly been looking at the air force since much of that (as I've been told) involves more intelligence and less boots-on-the-ground involvement. I'm an avid verbal and written communicator, political analysist, and decision maker. Upon graduation, I will be sufficient in Portuguese. I don't know what kind of job that would land me. Ideally, I'd like to serve in the ROTC for my remaining undergrad (2.5 years) and graduate study (2-3) years and then pursue a civilian career. I know that's not always the case, but what are my chances? Also, what are the summer commitments, as I would like to continue interning (summer 2017 is with CSPAN to give an idea)? What other commitments should I be aware of? And being frank, under the Trump Administration, what are the odds of deployment? I'm willing to serve my country, but I'll be honest. I didn't vote for Trump and do fear the battles we may be fighting. Last, I am a woman. Compared to other branches, what are rates of sexual assault in the air force? I also expect there are questions I didn't think to ask. I speak with a recruiter in a couple days (just casually), so knowing what kinds of questions besides these would be great. Thank you!
