im a physician in the civilian side and also in the army reserves - 61H

to the poster who wants to be a doctor after enlisting in the army out of high school here some advice -

Go to college first, even if you have to rack up debt, pick a major you like (i wish i would have done engineering but i did bio like a good boy, just don't pick something stupid like art history) and take all the premed classes (there aren't too many) along with your major. After you graduate college you can commission into the army as an officer and then you can apply through the military to med school (they will pay for school and give you a stipend) and you can get in fairly easily as long as you manage a decent gpa/mcat score

I took a very roundabout way of getting where I am today. If I had to do it over again I would do it the way I outlined above. It leaves you with flexibility if you don't get into med school because you will still have a good bachelors degree and have a decent military career as an officer. I've seen way too many enlisted kids wanting to be doctors/lawyers etc that get bogged down after spending years not being in school as enlisted and fail to get back into gear once they are eligible to use their GI bill.

just my 2 cents, Good luck.

No job at the moment, but I want a job where I can work outside.

for some reason i was expecting everyone to have a similar type of job in a tech related field or something like that. the variety of jobs anime fans have is actually pretty good.

I fit into this demographic. I'm the Director of Infrastructure at a VoIP-based software company. I monitor servers, AWS instances, networks, work with carriers/underlying carriers, and all that nastiness.
