  • Opinion on changing something

    I have a good guess as to what everyone will say but I would like to hear an opinion.

    Im 20 and have my tongue pierced, would it be a good idea to either take it out for the oral board and any person to person background meetings and/or get rid of it alltogether? In my opinion i act pretty professional and such but will I be looked at as lower class for having it? thanks.

      I would suggest you take it out. Any piercings/obvious tattoos (i.e. anything that might make you look unprofessional) should be covered or removed for the oral board. You want to make your best impression on the board. Once you get through the academy and past FTO, you shouldn't have a problem with piercings etc (depending on dept. policy) so just keep them hidden while going through the process.
      I disaprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it. -Voltaire

        Opinion.

        Nick, you walk into any Oral Board I'm sitting on, with a pierced tongue, wearing an earing, or anything like that, I'm going to flunk you. Here it is, and I've said this before. An Oral Board serves two very important purposes. It gives an agency a look at you, and equally important gives you an opportunity to sell yourself to the department. Go into that interview looking like you just got bounced from American Idol, and you've probably just shot down any chances you have at becoming an Officer.

          You know what Chris Rock says about a man with a tongue ring? Oh nevermind.....
