Most require that you get some college (usually two or three years) on your own, first. All of these programs are extremely competitive. There are many, many, many more candidates for these programs than there are “time slots” each year. So if you`re planning to compete with one of those few slots available, you have to be the “best of the best.” This means higher marks, an excellent military record and “Walk on Water” written recommendations from your superiors and commanders.

The nuclear program would be an example. These programs typically require higher ASVAB line evaluations and require longer commitment to services, but offer accelerated promotions, greater training opportunities and higher enrolment levels.
