    I'm kinda disappointed, I thought I'd do better than a 77... Maybe I'll take it again and get some sleep the night before... and not have a cold... and eat some dinner first... and not work at 7 am that day

    I was expecting at least 85ish from how damn easy the test was... I guessed on maybe 10 questions total, the others I was 100% sure about... bah /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    Armed Services Vocational Aptitude(sp?) Battery. It's the test you take to get in the military. To get in the Marines you have score a 32 or a 30 I believe, most people get 50-80ish range I guess...

    I took the ASVAB a long time ago, when I was thinking about going into the Air Force for computer training right after high school. I don't recall that they told me a specific number, but they did tell me that I could get any training that I wanted, with the exception of chaplain and accountant. /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif They really wanted me to become an aircraft mechanic, because I had done exceptionally well on the spatial relationships part of the test. I'm really good at those things where they show you a cube with different shapes on each side and then show you four other cubes that have been "opened and flattened". I can fold them up mentally and determine which one would look exactly like the pictured cube. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif Luckily, they jerked me around enough before I took the oath that I decided to tell em no thanks and pay for my own computer training. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    Since Fort Carson is here in Colorado Springs (along with NORAD, NorthComm, Peterson AFB, and the Air Force Academy), the local news does a lot of military related stories. Just last week they were interviewing a local Army recruiter to see if Iraq was having a negative effect on recruiting. He said that he is actually getting more applications now. But what blew me away was when he said that he gets 30-40 applicants each month, but that only THREE OR FOUR of them make the grade and actually get to join the Army! /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif I just wonder what options you have in life after being rejected by the Army? Does that mean ya are doomed to a lifetime of flipping burgers or something? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    A lot of things like too many parking tickets, criminal record, asthma, etc can take you out of the running. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    I would have to agree with Kenny that most of the rejections are due to trouble with the law and medical problems and not really because they're complete dumbasses. If you have ever been to the doctor then they srutinize you even more. If you've ever broken a bone then you have to have a bunch of x-rays and get apporoval for it etc etc.

    If you get rejected from the army you just join the navy. We will take just about anyone.

    If you score too low for a specifac MOS, be sure to ask you recruiter about an ASVAB waiver. Most times they will allow you to at least attempt the tech school. If you can't hack the school then they usually just put you where they need you. AKA cook, laundry b!tch, and other undesireable jobs. In other words study!

    Ok, here’s the deal, an ASVAB or any other test is not a true and actual measurement of intelligence or aptitude, it only measures how well you test. I scored a 119 (or was that my GT? Who the heck knows) and I still amaze family, friends, and myself, with the stupid stuff I do. I went on to become an Army medic (AKA “Pecker checker”) and there were many people I met that scored lower than me and did a FAR better job! Don’t let the military decide your future; you decide your future in the military.

    i tried to join the army back in 1993 and i went through meps and took the tests got sworn in and then 2 days before i was supposed to leave for basic i got a letter saying i failed the drug test /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    i even quit smoking the weed for about 2 months beforehand and still didnt pass. i was trying to change the way my life was heading and they turned me down. the recruiter kept calling and sending letters over the next couple of years trying to get me to join again, i figured they didnt want me then they cant have me now.

    i understand the reasons behind why they turned me down but come on it was just some weed and i had even quit so the level couldnt have been too high.

    I'm sorry, I mis-spoke. The ASVAB Score (AFQT Score) is a "percentile score." The AFQT Raw Score is computed with the formula AFQT = 2VE + AR + MK. You can't use the AR and MK score shown on an ASVAB Score Sheet. The Score Sheet shows "number correct" for your AR and MK Scores, because "number correct" is what is used for job qualifications. However, the military does not use this same score when computing the AFQT. They use the "weighted scores" of the ASVAB sub-tests for AR and MK. Harder questions in these areas get more points than easier questions. The "weighted scores" for AR and WK are not listed on the ASVAB score sheet given to you after the test.(I know of no way to retrieve that information from DOD.)
    The "raw score" is then compared to the below chart to determine overall ASVAB percentile score.
    Standard Score(First column)
    Percentile (AFQT)(Second column)
    Standard Score Third Column
    Percentile (AFQT)Fourth Column

    The dumb thing that irks me is that us prior service guys decide to go back into the reserve (enlisted 4-2-04 in denver as an E-4) have to take the damn test all over again...guess they need to see if you get dumber after you get out?
