I am a single female and am a licensed Physical Therapist Assistant. I am pursuing a bachelor's degree in kinesiology (pre PT). My current GPA is 3.5 from Physical Therapist Assistant school, and is the lowest it has ever been. While pursing my bachelor's, my GPA will only go up. I would like to go to Physical Therapist school once I join, and am wondering if my degree would somehow "disqualify" me since it is a general education degree and not a technical degree. I want to be an officer badly, and am willing to go through the process after enlisting if that is the best route. But I am just hoping that someone may be able to give me a little insight on which is the best route?

Thanks!

We're not taking any regular officers until 2020. The boards are completely full and closed to additional applications. Sorry. The 2-Star general for recruiting actually put out a letter to applicants but I can't find it online. It basically says "wait until 2020, become a pilot instead, or enlist" because we are completely out of slots for new officers at the moment.

You can apply to be a pilot though, they're taking those.

Please google "Air Force HPSP DPT" as we have scholarships to send you for your DPT. Without that, you aren't qualified to do anything in healthcare with your current bachelor's degree. .

You could enlist.

I actually will not be joining until 2020, the remainder of my education in combination with the observation/volunteer hours need will take that long to complete. In addition to my post above, I am very interested in the Army-Baylor program. I know that this can be done if I am enlisted as well, but previous officer experience helps a ton, and from what I can find out, AF slots in the Baylor program are only open to current active duty members.
