USAF enlistee in need of advice from pilots please

    USAF enlistee in need of advice from pilots please

    Hi, I really need some advice from a current or ex-military pilot. I'm currently in the delayed entry program for the U.S.A.F. and I'm just waiting on getting a job position so I can ship out. My question is this, what is the best route to becoming a pilot?

    I've asked my recruiter, and he is a very straight forward and honest guy, who basically told me it was nearly impossible. I pretty much think so too. I am already 24 years old, and have yet to get my bachelors, so yes, it is almost impossible. I know the age limit is around 27 or so.

    Can anyone please give me any advice? Are there certain ways around the age limit? What carreer field would be best to go into? Currently I'm looking at airborne cryptologist, avionics (no really too excited about that one), or even Combat Controller (spec ops) if it would help. Any tips on the right job to get in the right places, right time? What degree should I go for? I would need to be taking college courses at the same time, of course, and try for the bachelors degree in record time, but I AM UP FOR IT...if it's possible.

    Please help if you can. Being a military pilot has always been my dream, it may be too late but I need to at least make this one effort to at least try. Please also let me know if you think it's too late, and there's no possible way.
