I just got back from meps this past week. I went their wanting nuke and I earned a 90 on the asvab, with a 243 line score. So I needed a 50 on the NAPT. Glad to say that I passed it witha 60. Overall it wasn't too difficult besides the physics questions (have never taken a physics course).
I have to clear a waiver because my mother was born in the Philippines, but once that goes through I just need to go back to MEPS and get my Nuke contract.
I have been hearing that DEP usually takes like 7-9 months in the Nuke program and I was wondering why that is? I want to ship out asap, but I know that it is needs of the Navy. I thought that the Navy needs Nukes? Why is the DEP period so long if that is the case?
Anyways I have been reading through this forum for like 6 months prior to going to MEPS and stuff. My main reason to join is to receive a higher education as I cannot do it on my own and to become more independent. I will update on when the waiver clears and I get my ship date (hopefully sooner than 9 months!)
