You do realize that, statistically speaking, the average non-engineering college grad who isn't going into a PhD, JD, or MD program and doesn't have a standing offer for a position making at least $60k starting is better off commissioning as an officer in the military, right?
>Starting O1 makes ~$35k plus well over $10k in housing and cost of living benefits which are tax free
>Pretty much guaranteed promotion to O2 within six months, making $40k plus the aforementioned benefits which are tax free
>If you're multi-lingual in the right languages up to 12k per year in additional pay is also on the table from when you're certified by the military to be proficient
Keep in mind that the average college grad starts at $35k unless they're in one of those groups I mentioned.
