So, my recruiter had been telling me that due to most of the army's slots being filled up from the kids just getting out of high school, I wouldn't go in for months after I picked my job. However, come time to actually choose my job, the liason tells me that a large number of slots suddenly opened up, and the 25s MOS I wanted has no slots at all, not even in FY10. After picking my next best choice of 25L, I am told I leave on August 26th, and that there's nothing I can do to get a later date besides pick a job I don't want. This happened on the 6th.
Needless to say, I am panicking. I know this all was no one's fault in particular, I'm just unlucky. BUT, I really, REALLY needed the time to prepare. I am absolutely horrible at running, and I'm not even sure if I can properly complete the mile, much less run it fast enough. The push ups and sit ups I'm not worried about, but I REALLY don't want to get sent to a fitness platoon or fail BCT because I couldn't run fast enough.
Am I screwed? If I can at least get the mile down, do I stand a chance of passing basic? I'd really love to know. :/
Also, if anyone is a 25L in here, I'd love to hear what daily life is like at your job, and what AIT was like.
