I have a BA in General Studies with a focus in Humanities. I'd like to take a shot at OTS since I can, but don't mind going in E3. I've been a Pharmacy Technician at CVS 3 years and want to try something drastic and new while I'm young. I would be fine with being a pharmacy tech in the Air Force as well. Ultimately, I'd like to go to pharmacy school and after becoming a pharmacist, go right back into the Air Force. I don't mind being deployed to a warzone, but I would rather not be in an exeedingly high risk situation if I can help it. If I don't get in OTS, what are the odds of getting in later as a Pharmacist?

Go talk to all of the recruiters just to get a feel or idea of what is available...

Research HPSP, it's a scholarship for Pharmacy School.

If you're under 38, Female and/or minority, you have a good shot at getting a rated (flying) position as an officer, otherwise chances are low with that degree.

Good luck!

I'm 21, but my uncorrected eyesight is 20/400 nearsighted. If LASIK can get me in, I might do that. I have a little money left over from TOPS and this other scholarship I got.

Your vision is possibly fine the way it is for ABM or Nav positions. LASIK comes with a 6 month wait before you can apply.

Seriously?

Those are words of a coward with the disclaimer that you're not a coward.

When you raise that right hand, you take the good with the bad. This isn't a buffet where you take what you want and leave what you don't want for the others.

Your "me first" mentality will do nothing but lead you to failure in the military.
