Hey all. Firstly, I want to thank those who have served, and to thank those who will respond to my thread.
Here is what's up:
I failed my second consecutive quarter in engineering so that means I am up for dismissal. I can petition the dismissal so I can stay one more quarter, or transfer to a community college for a year and transfer back, but I am really considering joining the army.
I really want to serve my country and I have felt that its something everyone should do.
I was wondering about those who have gone on deployment and returned to school, or those who are in reserve while going to school, and going full 4 years active. Pretty much first hand experience in army+education situtations
Here is what's up with me:
-6'1" 170 lbs, Can Bench 235 lbs and run half marathons and trail runs regularly.
-I.Q. 142. I know, how can a genius fail out of college...
-I excelled in math, physics, and history in college. Not so much Chem, Bio, computer science stuff....
-Can learn languages quickly (Spent a month in Canada, and picked up French well enough to hold a basic conversation, also spent 3 months in the Philippines, fluent by the end of my stay)
- I do have exercised induced asthma...
I was learning water quality engineering at my college, but not sure that's for me anymore. I do like engineering though.
Thanks in advance!
