I've been in the Air Force for approximately 3-months now and some questions have arised within my head over the past few days. Basically, I tried college for 2-years and ended up with a 1.8 GPA and was put on academic probation for the following semester (which I didn't go to because I left for BMT). Currently I'm in tech school in Monterey, CA at the Defense Language Institute training to become a Pashtu (Afghan language) linguist. So now I'm wondering, how does military experience and the job you did while serving "look" on your resume or college application letter in the civilian world? I mean, do people with military experience along with an honorable discharge get a boost compared to those who haven't served? Because frankly, I'd like to go back to college and get my degree in some sort of science or engineering. And with my GPA so low, I need any sort of extra help I can get for getting accepted into a university of my choice. Also, if I decide not to go to college until after serving my time, will my military experience help me land a good job in the civilian world? I know the top secret clearance I have is a big boost towards getting a "dream job" since it shows employers that I am a very trustworthy person. I would just like to know if anything else I gain from the military will help me get enrolled into a good school or land that great job. Any help is greatly appreciated.
