    You're right David, I guess being MORE betterer than everyone is awesome!

    I have always been a firm believer that all American boys and girls owe their country a military commitment. No matter what branch, its a valuable life experience.

    You said you are in the cadet program, you might want to inquire with that department to see if having college credits will make you a more desirable candidate. Bear in mind though that each department has different things that they feel make an applicant "more" or "less" desirable. Good Luck!

    College or USMC. It's a personal preference really. If you don't think you want to go to school, join whichever branch you like. That will help you pay for your school later, as well. Get the G.I. Bill though. I didn't take it and later regretted it.

    What you may not understand, and I didn't when I made my decision, is that college isn't like high school. You don't get in trouble for not going, you don't have to go 7-4 Monday thru Friday, and the college scene is actually really fun. It's nothing like high school. You are your own keeper there, provided you don't get into legal trouble. And the girls there are some of the best lookin Betties you'll ever find. EVERYBODY gets laid in college.
    +1, and another +1 for the "EVERYBODY gets laid in college."

    m0nk17, A buddy of mine went through the Delayed Entry Program into the Reserves. He went to boot camp the summer after he graduated high school, went to college the next school year, then on to basic infantry training the next summer, and so on until he was done with his training and school. So, he was able to go to school, AND earn the right to be called Marine. It doesn't always have to be either/or...

    Clarification needed: EVERYBODY gets laid in REAL college. If I knew then what I know now, I would have told my local junior college to kick rocks.

    Please, go to college and learn to spell.

    Or, at the very least, if you can't spell well on your own, learn how to use SPELL CHECK...

    Good luck!

    Based on my limited experience as a Federal LEO, we're almost expected to have a degree or be very close to getting one. In the Park Service, there's nothing that says I need one, but the impression I've been given is that I won't advance without one. Plus it's not a bad idea at all. If you don't want to do the four to five year plan, there's always the two year associate's degress that many community colleges offer. They tend to be substantially cheaper as well.

    Secondly, the whole point of an academy or any kind of education is to give you, the LEO, a better chance at being smarter than the suspect. So the more education you can get, the better at you job you can be. Lastly, being able to outsmart your opponent means you can go home at night.

    Hah! Anyway, back to the subject though, if you would like to join the Marine Corps, that's great! Just keep in mind that there are also 4 other branches of service to choose from. Don't just join to make it look good on the resume, because it won't be an enjoyable 4 (or however long) year enlistment. Plus, you might really like the military and want to make that a career instead of law enforcement.

    Yes everyone may be making fun of you for spelling, but police officers write reports and your spelling has to be legible, and you have to know how to spell!

    Another option is...you could go to college, and join the reserves! BAM! Two birds with one stone, OMG I'm so smart!

    If you go the military route, the police departments will def look into this vs just being a average Joe off the street. If I was you id just stick to college (Aka collage) and get some education. With a good education, most departments will pay you extra dependent on which degrees you do have. As far as the war in Iraq, there is still alot of termoil over there so id reccommend not going over and just keeping your butt over here in the USA. If your joining an explorers program like you mentioned, this will also help you out.
    My opinon is to go to college and then join a department or join a department and then have them pay for school.
