I know its my life and in the end I have to make the decisions, but all the same I would like some input of the older experienced guys if their willing... I left active duty in 07. At the time I was seriously contemplating going to selection, but instead I listened to my father's words he kept telling me as a child... "do whatever you want in life, but get your degree first." I am still attending college. I actually love my degree (International Affairs: Concentrations in Middle E. and Conflict/ Security). Every day, I think about the other decision... staying in and going SF. Its been three years and seems the desire is just getting worse. I enjoy learning what I have in this degree, and I have especially enjoyed my two semesters in the middle east. I joined the reserves a year ago, and the temptation just keeps getting worse to go to selection. Two things are going through my mind: 1: Go to selection over the summer to go to NG SF. If selected, just come back and finish senior year of college at a later date. 2: Stick it out, Finish school graduate with the degree and arabic language, then if I still feel the same try out for SF. Option 2 makes me worry because i am currently 26 years old. By the time I change to a non 11b MOS in the reserves and complete college I will be around 28.5 years of age. I am looking for some opinions if this is two late in the game to enter an SF career. I realize its only 2 year difference between options, but it just kinda scares me creeping closer to 30. (No Offense to any older/experienced people here) I am just looking for some outside opinions on the issue, because I dont think this yearning to go to SF is going away any time soon.
