I am interested in becoming a radiology spec. in the army. However, my recruiter said he has yet to see someone recieve that particular MOS. Is it that hard to get this MOS?

No, it is not difficult. Ask your recruiter to show you a listing of the mandatory pre-requsites for that MOS. If he starts tap dancing, ask to see another recruiter, or the station commander. If all of them refuse to help you or are being less than forthcoming, I suggest you call a different recruiting station and find out if they can give you the info that you need. Make sure you let the original recruiting station know that you intend to do this and I think they may be a little more willing to help you. Do not let them pressure you. It is like going to buy a car. You know what you want and what you don't want, but they may try to sell you something else, (see the analogy)? You are in control, completely, until you sign on the dotted line. DO NOT LET THEM TALK YOU INTO ANYTHING YOU DON'T WANT. INSIST THAT THEY PROVIDE YOU WITH COMPLETE AND ACCURATE INFO OR TELL THEM THAT YOU WILL WALK, THEN DO IT!!!! They will come "crawling" back to you. Also, you may be able to find it at the AMEDD Center and School webstie from Ft. Sam Houston. I used to be a Drill SGT for 91Ps and they had no trouble filling classes. My partner and I had roughly 200 soldiers (all 91Ps), at any given time. Take your time and do your research FIRST, just like you should do before you go to the dealership when buying a car. If you, "the consumer" is not informed, then you make yourself an easy mark. Get as much info as you can from other sources BEFORE you go back. Let me know how it goes.

Good Luck!

Well, I glad to say I have recieved the MOS i had asked for. However, I do have a question about AIT. Since AIT is 46 weeks long, is my wife able to join me after I have been inprocessed? Also, since I'm prior service do I have to live in a billet? Well, what I'm trying to ask, is this AIT simliar to basic, drill sargent wise?

Congrats on getting the 91P MOS! No,AIT is not the same as BCT, however if you are a former 11B, then I'm sure you can handle the BS and focus on the training. I have answered all of your additional questions in a PM so check it out! Yes, your spouse it allowed to reside with you while you are in phase I of the 91P course.

I got told the same thing when I tried to enlist. my score were high, I went to MEPS did my physical. Was told "there are no slots"and I said "Well thanks anyway, Im not enlisting if I cant get into XRAY", sat around for a few hours waiting for my ride home and guess what, it like some kind of miracle (yeah right) a slot to go to xray school was found just for me.
When I went six years ago we had 91B combat medic school first then xray school, it is long enough for your family to go with you to, I had mine there in San Antonio texas lived off post in my own place. And if you are one of the highest in your class you get to choose first where you go for OJT (on the job training) I op'd to stay in TX. Remember don't let them tell you what you want when it comes to the next 3-20 years of your life, you make the decisions and stick to them, haggle them and get those bonuses. Know what you are asking for prior to asking this goes for reenlistment also.

Greetings to everyone, I need some answers and support regarding my enlistment process.
I have tried to get enlisted since early July; by the 15th of the same month I passed my ASVAB test at the Meps (i'm attaching my score report with this email). But before they sent me to take my Physical, my recruiter in charge showed me in the computer all the MOS specialties that opened after she submitted my name, code and score. She and I were surprise because 5 medical MOS (68 P,K,Q,A,W) showed in the row ready to pick up or get reserve, but a big inconvenient didn't allow me to choose my desired P68( Radiology specialist) MOS right away. My waiver wasn't ready! I was charged with a misderminor DWI in 2004, almost 10 years ago and since then i had not committed any other infraction, misderminor, felony or warrant of any kind. Since day one I expressed my interest on that particular MOS P68, and I only was waiting for that waiver to get approved while I crossed fingers wishing that P68 won't close up in my face.
Well, by now I do believe i picked the worst recruiting office in town, the first recruiter to take care of my paperwork was Sergeant. 1 , then after a few weeks they passed me with Sergeant 2, she took me to the MEPS to take the ASVAB and showed me my MOS options, then after a month i got kicked with Sergeant. 3, He took charge of my case and set up an interview with an army officer to explain my DWI case and why i want it to enjoy the Army, I passed this interview with no problem. A few weeks later he took me the hotel to get my physical done. I assumed after i passed my physical I could finally have the chance to choose my MOS, sing up and pledge but that wasn't the case. I got stuck with this Sargent for almost 2 months, always giving me pity excuses why my waiver was taking too long, to the point that I certainly started believing that these people at this specific recruiting office weren't taking me serious. Finally, after 3 months of trying to get enlisted the Station Commander Sergeant 3 showed up and took me to his office. I thought he had my waiver approved and ready to process but NO, he said that they weren't ready because some more paperwork was needed and even tried to brain wash me to convince me to pick whatever specialty will be open when the time is right. he said by tomorrow noon (wednesday, October 9th) I'll be ready to go, sign and pledge. Off course I will negotiate on my behalf.
I personally believe there must be some kind of bullshit involved, and even I thought several times to find another recruiter for my own good. Since the beginning of my enrollment process I was couch by my uncle who is about to retire from the Army after 24 years of active duty. He trained me and taught me a lot about the way how the Army life rolls.
Well , My uncle doesn't have any friend recruiter what's so ever. i am not sure if you have one or not but if you do, this is what i want to get. I'm not sure if recruiters are the only ones who can get into your files and find out which MOS are open for each candidate at a specific period of time, if this is the case I want to find out a friendly recruiter who can tell me when P68 is available to be chosen.
By this time I think several bad things about the recruiting office that had been handling my case. Maybe they need to feel up the quota with lame specialties and they intent to brake me so I end up picking whatever they want me to pick, or even the thought that my waiver was approved long ago but they wanted to make sure I won't be as stubborn for that particular MOS, I even consider to choose 68K Laboratory Specialist.

Thanks for your time , hope you all are doing great.
