failed at collage
« on: Jul 26, 2016, 11:39 »
I have a question for everyone her I just finished my first year at collage and to put it mildly i did not due so well.
 I want to know if that will effect my chances of getting in to the nuke program.


I had about a 3.2 gpa in high school and like a B average in science and math classes

I forgot to mention I have ADHD and am taking my year off with out meds
Will ADHD disqualify me for working on a sub or anything

You do not need college to be in the Nuke program, but since you didn't do well it gives an indication of your level of commitment. Commitment is a big part of the military, there is no quitting. Maybe you should rethink what is important and what your goals are.

Besides if you fail at putting a bunch of pictures together on a poster, what makes you think you can make it in Nuke school?

   Attention to detail would be a good start, this is a web site and short hand is common but if you want to be taken seriously a positive impression would help. Have you talked to a recruiter? Needs of the Navy change almost every year and the only way to know for sure is to start the conversation with the Navy. ASVAB scores and other criteria would be a better indicator of your chances to get into the program.


   As to ADHD I believe you will have to get a waiver, again that will require initiating contact with a recruiter and starting the process.


   There are a couple of posters who have recently been Navy Recruiters. Hopefully they can give you some current information and help with dealing with a recruiter.


   Sorry if I seemed a little rough but the program can be a little rough. It is not rocket science but it does come at a rapid pace and the Navy wants people who are likely to complete the training pipeline.


Good luck, be positive.

Btw it doesnt matter how well you did in college. Unless you mention it no one will look at it. If you had a C Average in algrebra one you are eligible. The rest is just a bunch of bs. Saying that I agree that you have an attention to detail issue and in nuclear that will destroy you
