I am a 24 year old woman with a master’s degree. I have accumulated a large amount of student loan debt due to my 6 years in school earning my bachelor’s and master’s degrees. I saw on the army website that they will pay off up to $ 65,000 of my student loans and I will go in as an officer since I have graduated from college.
What can I expect from basic training and OCS as a woman? What is the best time of year to enlist/go off to basic training in terms of weather severity?
I am interested in administrative focused positions once I finish training. Does anyone have personal experience and advice for being either a Financial Manager or a Personnel Systems Management Officer?
Finally, being a woman with a high level of education, what is the likelihood of being deployed somewhere dangerous?
If there is any other information that you are willing to share I would appreciate it including questions to ask my recruiter. I want to make sure I am not taken advantage of- I just want to make sure I ask the right questions so that I know what I am getting.
Thanks for any answers!
I graduated with my master’s degree and a 4.0 GPA
