You can get promotions as well as a $2000 bonus before you ship off if you get some other people to sign up with you. You can also start higher with college credits. I am signing up now, as a college graduate, I am starting as E-4.

I would suggest finishing up college first...40 credits for the Army will promote you to E-3...After another 6-10 you may recieve E-4.

College man....think about it before you enlist.

It depends. You can get a wavier and get promoted early to each rank or you can wait the 2 years like most people have to do and you will be automatically promoted to SPC (E-4).

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

depends on MOS. infantry goes up fast. i went from e1 to e4 in 1 1/2 years. e5 by the end of that year and e6 in 2 more years.

but im hard core. just kidding.

a few years

The Captain may have processed it but I guarantee he didn't sign it or approve it, a LTC or COL did. Anyways..congrats. Promotion from E-1 as follows:

From E-1 to Private (E-2) - Six months time-in-grade (TIG) as a private (E-1).

From E-2 to Private First Class (E-3) - Four months TIG as a Private (E-2) and 12 months time-in-service (TIS).

From E-3 to Specialist/Corporal (E-4) - 6 months TIG with 24 months TIS

You will also need a security clearance to apply for Special Forces and that felony may prevent your getting a clearance.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

About two years.

Also note, there is a difference between a waiver allowing you to enlist.

And it allowing you to do a specific mos.

Standard time for promotion is 24 months, could be as early as 18 with a waiver. Congrats on the waiver you got already.... I always tell people to keep looking for ways, that's the reason right there.

Best of luck on going SF, hope it works out for you. If I had a penny for every person I heard say "I'm going to be special forces!" and ended up a regular grunt, or worse, never even joined in the first place.... I'd never have to work another day in my life
