National Guard...ASVAB score question
Any military guys know what MOS an 80 on the ASVAB qualifies me for in Army National Guard?
Have a bachelors degree and banged out an 80 so curious what options that gives me. Recruiter has been a bit tough to meet up with lately with work this week.
Any help appreciated.

The recruiter should have told you what MOSs you qualified for, immediately after the test results came out. Believe me, he or she wants to get that list into your hands ASAP, they are not avoiding you.

80 is pretty good, I was an 89 back when I joined the service and had every job open to me except nuke because I have a GED not a diploma. I think if you have 80 or above high scores like that usually have their pick as long as there's a demand. Pick something you think you can handle with a nice signing bonus but don't bite off more then you can chew. Not sure about national guard but my A school and weapons training was 2 years and if you flunk out you were sent to the fleet without a mos and had to wait to strike for another rate.

We clean, sleep, clean, sleep, clean, sleep, clean, train, clean, sleep, clean, sleep, clean, sleep, clean, train, clean. You can throw in random classes in that schedule that do NO one any good because it would be our 3rd or 4th time minimum attending this class. Bull**** topics like SAPR, SA, Deadly Keystrokes, etc...

I am active duty right now and ^^^ is correct, an 80 is a pretty legit score. its all about your GT score though. The test is brokem down into different areas. The GT score is the portion that is uesd to see what MOS's you would qualify for. Generally, a 110 GT score and you can do anything. Dont be alarmed by the "110". Just cuz you got an 80 overall doesnt mean you didnt get a 110 on the GT portion.

They're right, the GT score will define what you qualify for in the Army. Also being that you have a degree you qualify for OCS (officer Candidate School), make sure to talk to them about that.
When you go to processing they'll tell you what is available at that cycle time. Jobs open at the beginning of a cycle and then close as they fill the slots. Works a bit different with the Guard and they should know whats open before you go from talking w/ your local units.

Asvap has different categories...
Most MOS require a certain GT or ST score for entry. Look into what your actual scores were(should be 10-15 different scores from electronics to general mechanics to nuclear etc. ), not your percent.
usually over 110 on GT gets you must jobs...
