    All they are looking for are people who don't have medical problems or a criminal history and are sound of mind.

    Seems to me though if you're a female or have some ethnicity they get real excited. Apparently there is too many white males in the CG haha.

    Keep in mind when you read those descriptions there's more that ISN'T said than what is and it changes depending on where you're stationed. I won't BS a BSer.

    To add to what Forerunner said, the recruiting office I went through recruited from 7 states an only had 60ish slots per year allotted if I remember correctly. Even a high ASVAB score might not help you get accepted. All up to the recruiter and what they see in you. If you want it go for it though I guarantee you won't regret it.

    If its one thing I can take from all of this, it seems like everyone who is in the CG loves it. I have yet to hear an extremely negative thing about it, seems like all of ya really enjoy it. I do have some time, so over the course of the year I can do more research on it and talk to a recruiter. I'm really not looking to go the BM or MK route. Mechanical expertise isn't my forte. I understand you gotta start somewhere, but I know for certain I wouldn't enjoy wrenching or working on motors all day.
