I'm graduating in June with my degree in Chemcial/Environmental Engineering, and I decided I want to join the military after college. I know I'll regret it the rest of my life if I don't do it now.
I posted here a few months ago about wanting to join the army, but I feel that going the Navy route especially going though Nuke School will better my life once I return to the civilian world.
I talked with a recruiter. I will have to submit a professional resume, a personal statement, and a transcript to the NuPOC program head from review and that's where the Navy will decided if they want me or not. I'll either start a new life in the Navy or finding another job as a civilian.
My GPA wasn't the best, 2.7, and the program wants a minimum 3.1 GPA and preferred 3.5 GPA. Since I've worked 20+ hrs/week paying for what loans and grants don't cover, but I feel if I convey that fact in my personal statement, that I struggled in paying for tuition and had work 3 part time jobs distracting me from the school work, the Navy will give me a shot...
What do you think?
