    I'm Basically trying to decide whether or not to apply for the Air Marshals(GS7) or go to college and then apply to the FBI(GS10).

    Long version: I just finished my second tour in the Coast Guard. My Father-in-Law had been asking me to come work for him for a long time and made a lot of promises about how I would be taken care of. Well, I got out based on his word, and his promises were a little harder to keep than he thought it would be. I've been working for almost two months and he still hasn't been able to pay me. I want to help this guy out but I have to consider taking care of my family before anything else. A friend of mine in the Air Marshals has bee asking me to apply for a while and now they are hiring locally. My other options would be to keep working with my father-in-Law and use the post 911 GI bill to subsidize my income enough to scrape by for two or three years, go to college and apply for what I would consider a better LEO position in the FBI.

    College and FBI would be my choice. Good luck with whatever you chose.

    i just finished my 6th and final year of college with no job prospects whatsoever so the service doesn't sound like a bad plan, at least for the relative short term.

    I'd say go for the FBI. But do what will make you and your family happy in the long run.

    I say air marshal. FBI is a great career opportunity but very competitive. You can't bank on that 3 - 4 years from now. I would look into a college degree no matter what you decide. They can never hurt your situation.

    I already have about 40 credits toward an engineering degree and the one thing I like about the Air Marshals is the ability to continue my education. It will just have to be an online school. If I go FAM(Federal Air Marshal) I probably will still try to get into the FBI at some point. It just might take me a little longer to accomplish the neccessary degree needed to apply.

    Both are great choices! I would get the degree and go from there. The FBI will not hire you without one. I have been looking at their websute at Special Agent Jobs and it requires a degree. Both are great choices with awsome benefits. Do what suits you best and something you can see yourself doing for a while. Good Luck!
