Congratulations Jake! He killed his ASVAB today! His recruiter was absolutely thrilled with his performance on the ASVAB. He scored above where he needed to for the jobs he’s interested and high enough on the general score to have several great options for him.
As you may recall from my Transitions post, Jake is slated to go into the Air Force later this fall. Today was the day he took the ASVAB to see what job he’d qualify for in the Air Force. He’s been studying the ASVAB for the last several months as the jobs that he’s interested in required a very high electrical and general score. Fortunately, I was insistent that he take the ASVAB before going to MEPs, so he know what he qualifies for and have less to worry about at MEPs.
So now the countdown to MEPS (Military Entrance Processing Station) and BMT (basic military training) has now begun. On Monday he’ll go back to his recruiter to start putting together a list of the jobs and duty stations he’d like. While it’s a wish list, hopefully with his score he’ll get one of his top choices. As a side note, he used Kaplan Test Prep’s ASVAB test preparation and it helped tremendously. If you or your child are planning to take the ASVAB, make sure you pick up the test prep.
Meanwhile, the younger two are still living their best lives up in Minny nary missing us for a moment. The hubby is busy working away on a nice manse on the water up in Jupiter. While he works his tail off, I’ve been spending my days at the dentist/doctor. I am trying to get everything done this week my FSA ends on 7/31. Consequently, my face feels like it’s going to be numb for days. Anyway back to what this post is all about: congratulations Jake!
