So, in this single post, you prove that you are against the Guard and Reserve (based on your experience), are sexist (lack of denial) and that as a recruiter you are 'selling' a product.
Good to Know, Thanks
When you go into an Army recruiter remember that if it is not in the contract then it will not happen. When I joined, of all the services, the Army was the only one that could guarentee a specific job. If the contract says 25U then you will get that (contingent on security clearance, passing all requirements at AIT, etc).
As an Audio Engineering major you may want to look into broadcast MOS. Active has positions but I am not sure about Guard/Reserves. Talk to a recruiter. But remember, as oatsnhoney pointed out, they are selling something. Just like a car, if you are not comfortable just politly walk out!!
If you do go Guard or Reserves, check out the units in your area. Most units are more than willing to have you in for a weekend. Some units do not train, others units train alot. This is similar to acitve duty.
Finally, if you have a BS you may get E4 on enlisting but that does not mean you wont have to do sh## details (buffing floors, ammo guard, etc) while on duty (both active and 'parttime').
Let us know how it turns out for you. Good luck
