    Travel [ap] I Need A Pilots Help....

    I am 19 years old, im Graduating in a few weeks and im thinking of joining the USMC to become in one form or another a pilot. I tried applying for the Navy and Air Force but due to my Christian Self Paced schooling they said i wasn't eligible to enlist so i went to the next obvious choice the Marines, but i want to know the simplest and/or quickest chance to become a pilot... also is their a way to get a wavier to allow me to join the AF or Navy??? any help will be appreciated. i have a 2.5 out of 3.0 GPA so im partially smart...lol im going to be studing to take the asvab test so i can get a good job, ive been practicing and taking practice test to help. Thanks

    Hopeful Teen

    I'm confused about your schooling.  You have passed a high school equivalency test, and taken the SAT or ACT, correct?  If not, you need to do so ASAP.

    You cannot be an enlisted pilot in the Air Force.  All Air Force pilots are commissioned officers.  That means you need a 4 year degree and a commission from the USAF Academy, Air Force ROTC, or OTS. 

    The ASVAB has no relevance for officer commissioning programs.

    If you meet the requirements at http://www.afrotc.com/, you should be good.

    Without some sort of standardized academic test records, you may not be competitive for a scholarship.  They need to have confidence in your academic abilities, based on a reliable basis for comparison.

    You could do what I'm doing and just skip the military and get your pilots licence on your own-?
