    NO, no one can get Ranger school in a enlistment contract.

    You have to earn you way into ranger school.

    No you cannot get HALO or Combat diver in an enlistment contract.

    The waiting list for SF soldiers for Halo school, is over 5 years long.

    No, most SF do not attend halo or combat diver school.

    If the A team your assigned to is a Halo team or diver team, then you get on the waiting list for those schools.

    Just realise, that out of the first 798 18x enlistees, only 14 made it thru SFAS.

    No u cant get ranger in an 18x contract .. Being that ranger is a step below SF . HALO is available to you if u become SF .. 1st you gotta get the score on the ASVAB , then you gotta get thru basic , and the classes there ..

    18xers are doing very well now, just as well as prior service coming into SFAS and SFQC, Mark. Using those numbers from that far back doesn’t present an accurate representation of what 18Xers are doing.

    The program is working for SF, giving them the chance to view more potential candidates and allowing them to mold them from the ground up.

    That said, SFAS and SFQC aren’t easy … many 18Xers and prior service fail out of the training or are peered out daily, so if one is thinking about trying for SF .. you better be prepared.

    No you can’t get Ranger school in your 18x contract. However your group if you make it will be more than happy to send you if you request to go. Halo and combat diver are given only to individuals on a team who are serving in a position that requires it. So if you are on an ODA that specializes in either you can get it. But that’s further down the pipe as you are not landing one of those spots fresh out of the Q.
