what would you do if you didnt have good grades and couldnt afford college? Is the Army a good choice?
In my opinion it would be much easier to improve your grades and look into scholarships and financial aid. There are some schools and scholarships out there that don’t require you to have a 4.0 or even a 3.0. Financial aid is probably the easiest to get. All you have to do is fill out the form!
There are lots of options out there to get your schooling paid for. If you are serious about going to college, just do a little research and be creative. Consult a guidance counselor to put you on the right track.
When you’re evaluationg yourself make sure that you don’t go crazy blaming other people because a lot of people do that and then they loose the whole point. So make sure you can connect whatever mistakes you’re making to yourself so that you can improve yourself. However, there are cases when it’s not really your fault but you just have to watch it.
Hope you can find some of this useful and good luck with your education 😀
Next Try to get a job that will pay for your schooling. A Lot of companies will pay for schooling if it has to do with your job. So get a low level job and go to school at night/weekend. I know most machine shops will do this after 3-6months. You can start with no experience at a lot of them. If you like this type of work you could go to school for it(machinist) or even engineering.
Very last would be the army. They will give you money but you also have to give your life to them for 4+ years. Coast guard or reserves might be a better bet. It’s very likely that you will go to iraq if you go to army or reserves.
I didn’t have good grades in high school either. I enlisted right after high school. I have a four year degree now. Even in the military, you’ll need a degree to get to the higher ranks.
You better have other reasons to join besides paying “for my education.”
