MoBiuS_1 is on a distinguished road
Default i want to become a Navy Diver. I have a few questions.

If I qualify for this rate, which I do when it comes to ASVAB and my education background. Anyway, how likely am I to get this rate if I qualify? And would 20/40 20/50 eyesight disqualify me? Im going to enlist in March. Lastly, my recruiter said that if I ace the PST, I should get ND. Any truth to this?

Your eye site must be CORRECTABLE to 20/20...as far as getting that rating and you pass everything you should be ok...just know the washout rate is very high while in training...if washed out..you may or may NOT have a choice on what is available to you.

Really three main things to worry about to get offered a ND contract; qualifying ASVAB, able to get a secret clearance, and solid PST numbers. It's a specwar job so they are always looking for qualified candidates. Just know that getting a contract and making it through school are two very different things. My class of 23 had 8 candidates make it.
