    If you're allowed to get an Option 40 despite the tattoo waiver keep an open mind about MOS selection. You'll have to decide what you want the most - 11X or any MOS that will get you an Option 40. Most Ranger candidates want Infantry so that usually fills up fast. There are many other MOSs in the 75th besides Infantry even Truck Driver.

    Then you might be waiting awhile if they don't have what you want. It really just depends on what is open. I waited months for an 11x slot. I chose to wait because it was what I really wanted.

    18X candidates only have a limited amount of slots in Infantry OSUT so if it's filled up you still might have to wait just like everybody else.

    The only other Combat Arms MOS in the 75th is 13F, Fire Support Specialist. They go on every mission along with 11B/C & 68W. Every MOS in the 75th can go on missions if an extra couple of shooters are needed. Intel Specialists go along many times. They're all Rangers.
