I was recently hired at a Guard unit as a non-prior. I'm going through the recruiting paperwork right now, and have my MEPS physical in a few days. My recruiter has me taking the ASVAB, even though it is not required for officer candidates. I explained to him that I already took the AFOQT. He explained that they're processing me as enlisted so that they can process my paperwork as an officer candidate (makes sense). I'm just curious if anyone else had to take the ASVAB at MEPS? It just seems like wasted time on both ends, if it's not required.
