Well, buddy. Good luck. I joined the Navy with a degree, too, years ago. If you're interested in intelligence, why no take the DLAB? If you do well,
a CTI rating could do very well for you. Your A school would be in Monterey, California, a very nice place. CTI is Interpretive, so you learn a
foreign language in depth. With the right language you will be in demand as a civilian. I was an MM Nuke, and I have to tell you--it's not only
difficult, it's not like there are a lot of jobs as reactor people in the civilian world. Both MM Nuke and CTI have amazing re-enlistment bonuses, if
you want to go there, but with a degree you would have several patheways to a commission should you choose to do that.
The most important thing to do is keep a good attitude and let the bad stuff roll off your back. There are always people with a bad attitude in the
service and it is way too easy to fall in with the wrong crowd, which I managed to do. Being in the Navy is difficult, particularly if you are
assigned to sea duty, but it can be very rewarding. People who have never gone through it have no idea what it is like.
