11x option 40

Post by jstullos » November 29th, 2016, 8:42 pm

Hello everyone,
I have looked and have seen several things just nothing specific enough so I'm here to ask ya'll. Im looking to enlist I want 11x option 40 the only thing my recruiter is telling me is there are only 92 option 40 available to me. I have option 4 on a few mos just not in the ones I would want. I would prefer 11x option 40. Do these open every month or not? How long could I be waiting for an 11x option 40? I know it's a crab shot, but would enlisting as an 11x then taking my chances be an ok way to go if no option 40 is available or will be available.
A little background I'm 29 will be 30 in 6 months and know my time is starting to get limited. Im currently somewhat unemployed and would like to join soon. I don't want to rush into anything and don't want anything Im not super satisfied with.
Lastly i did get 14E which interests me but doesn't have an option 40 and would basically keep me out of the rangers for however long I would enlist as that if i went that option. after my time as a 14E, if I went that route, would I be able to reenlist as a 11x option 40 or attempt to apply for RASP after the enlistment as a 14E or would I be to old.

Sorry if a bit confusing, I'm a bit confused myself.
thank you all

Ranger Jim I did not. I told my recruiter I wanted an 11x option 40 contract. I am currently waiting for one. I will be checking in with him every week or two to see if any slots open.
