Alrighty, so. After much deliberation, I've decided to give the army a shot. After giving it a good think and reading a fair bit, I've become very partial to the idea. So, I have a few questions: 1) Back in my teenage years, I went to my doctor because I was feeling rather down. I don't believe it was depression, as I had just left college and lacked direction, and I never once considered suicide or harming myself in anyway. (I never got any councilling or anything, and I'm still here. So I think that's a good bet. I've just put it down to regular teenage angst.) Regardless, my doc gave me some sort of pills. Naturaly, they didn't do anything, and I stopped taking them after a week. Will this affect my chances of being accepted? 2) What's the required time for 1.5mile run for a 20yr old female? I'm confident about my musuclar strength, but I've got the cardio-vascular talent of Rosie O'Donnell chasing an ice cream van uphill. (Perhaps a slight exaggeration, I'm slim but untrained in running.) 3) I'm a rug muncher/ bean flicker/ disciple of the bald man in a boat. How much flack can I expect to get for this? I'm not going to cry and sue the forces for sticks and stones - after all, I had to endure it in secondary school. Can I be comfortably open about it, or should I keep it on the hush hush? 4) How do we feel about CMTs? Yay? Nay? I'd go infantry if I could, but alas! I am a little woman. Thus, I'm shooting for as close to front-lines as I can get. 5) If a fat chick falls over in the woods, do the trees laugh? Any help is much appreciated!
