There is no reason to waste your time and money going to school for automotive analysis and repair if your going in the Marines in Sept. Serve your time, go to school while your in, and get paid to go to school when your out. Go soon as possible. The civilian school your attending is not going to help you work on MRAPS in the Corps.
If you want to be stuck inside the wire fixing broke Hmmwvs and MRAPS go for it. It may seen cool on the outside, but your going to hate your life. Go infantry, you will still hate your life but there will be a different sense of pride. The whole Marine Corps works for the rifleman. Join the Army if you want to work on trucks.
