how many years of college are necesary to be an naval engineer. Beacause I am probably going to go into the navy once I graduate college.

Would I have a different rank entering the navy if I went to college before I enlist?

11 Some might argue that this next item is a reason to stay in the navy, but I say its actaully not a true reason to stay in the NAVY. College is free in the NAVY, and I say sure, I got a free Masters Degree while I was in, which helped me get a descent job. But typically all decent jobs will pay for you to goto college. Now this is with the company I work for but other company’s do provide similar benefits. I get a training slush fund of 2 Grand to spend on whatever training I want, and I get 1 Grand to buy any equipment I want that furthers my training every year. Also I get free college to complete any additional degrees that I pursue, however with the company I work for you must receive a “B” to be fully reimbursed, which is typical with other companies that I’ve seen. 12 This one applies more to E6’s and up. The amount of time spent on this goes from I dunno a week down to about 20 mins. With my company they have 3 to 5 objectives, did you meet (yes/no) and then explain why you didn’t or how you did. No more complicated lines trying to state how wonderful you are. What did you do and how did you do it in as many or as few words as you want. 13 As long as it looks like you are busy, for the most part you are left alone, notice I didn’t say actaully working. 14 You can goto ANY doctor you want, provided they take your companies insurance. 15 This was sort of loosely stated before, but if you feel sick don’t come in, holy crap there is another concept for you, no need for a chit stating that you don’t feel well. 16 How could this one get so low on the list, but you actaully get paid real money, after leaving the military my salary went from an E6 with 8 years to a civ with a salary well over 6 figures. 17 Vacation, you only get charged for the time you are away from work, weekends are not included in this, so if you are out for 4 weeks you get charged for 20 days, likewise if you leave for a half a day or cut out 2 hours early you only get charged 4 hours or 2 hours of leave respectively.
