|Ok guys, SF vs. Rangers, which one is better and why?
Sorry couldnâ€™t help it. My question is actually along those lines but itâ€™s a little more in depth. I have been contemplating what I want to do with my life s far as a career path and am still without any firm direction. You may remember my thread about intel SOF but my situation is basically this: graduating in the spring with two BAs and interested in the military, but my eyesight is sort of a limiting factor. Mough (I think) suggested that I just give the option 40 contract a go and see what happens from there, which is what I am leaning towards. I am however interested in pursing a career in the "defense side" of government after I get out, whether that means DoD, DIA, NSA, CIA or whatever. I realize that you canâ€™t be a door kicker forever so eventually I will have to transition into a more staff related position, but Iâ€™m hoping by the time that occurs it will be a more senior position. Also I would be lying if I told you that I didnâ€™t have a hard-on for tier I units, and was wondering which one made a better feeder.
Second, I am considering the possibility that I am rejected from military service because of my eyesight. I am pretty set on going to grad school so I still have a few years before I have to sign on the dotted line. I have an adequate GPA coming out of school and pending a good score on my LSAT, I am considering going to law school. Would anyone recommend for or against this? Private sector the options for a lawyer pay much better, but I wasnâ€™t sure how a JD would look as opposed to an MA in the military. However further down the road I think the law degree might open up a few doors.
So which one would you recommend? I will most likely be enlisting and doing that route for a few years before going to OCS, to make sure that I get in the branch I want instead of going "needs of the army". Plus I would like to get some on-the-ground time before assuming any type of leadership role. Also signing with an intel MOS is still an option.
