    If you join the military with a PhD....

    what rank do you get? I heard 1LT, but that seems rather low, they should atleast make CPT.

    doctors and pharmacists become captains I believe.

    PhD would probably have to be something quality for them to actually use........

    i.e. Law or Medical/Behavior.

    I believe you still go in as a Second Lt., however you would most likely rank up faster based on merit etc. Also, you can get a direct commission (bypass OCS).

    Not to mention the additional incentives you receive. The loan repayment program doesn't hurt either.

    you have a pay chart?

    As a pharmacist in my state I would make roughly $120K a year. As a captain in military, isn't it something like $55K a year? Pay is cut in half compared to civilian.....

    That's base pay and doesn't include $25-$30k in BAH, plus another few thousand in BAS, and all the other benefits.

    As a 1st Lt I bring home, after taxes, >$50k per year.

    so as a pharmacist if I were to join I would be a captain (O3 pay grade)

    http://www.airforce.com/opportunitie...cer/pay-chart/

    so in civilian setting I would make $120,000 a year

    as a captain in Air Force I would make 3660.60 a month (x12 = $44,000/year)

    hmmmmm

    what else does military give, Housing?

    what is BAH?

    Is a Master's Degree in Pol Science any use to the military?

    Also that is just a base pay. If you are something they really need you get incentive pays and other bonuses.

My mom has been a practicing pediatrician for less than 15 years and making more than a four star general with 30 years of service.

    Edit:keep in mind I'm talking base pay, of course if you add up all the perks of being a general he/she would probably end up making more than my mom but point being it took him/her(general) a long ass time to get there!

    Not particularly - At least at my level. Very senior officers who make policy may make use of some political theory. But on the whole, most degrees don't translate well into the military, but an advanced degree is required to attain O-4 and higher.

    A military officer is expected to exercise initiative. If that is something you're interested in, google is your friend.

    I'm 90% sure you would be Major. Now, the Army does 'recruit' doctors etc and bring them in at higher ranks such as LTC, but it is pre-negotiated. They actually have people that full time travel and try to get current Doctors to join and medical students to pay back their loans.

    No. The highest rank you can go in with is Capt.
