What job in the Marines would you get if you were a Scientist?
If you have a degree in biochemistry , molecular biology with a minor in physics would you still be sent to Irac or would they put you in a lab somewhere? Would you be an officer? My son majored in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and he had a minor in Physics. He graduated with two degrees and works for the EPA so you don't know what you are talking about. He would like to serve his country but is not sure how to go about it since he hates guns. So I guess the Marines is out.

You will probably be helping to develop future weapons, or put into logistics or something like that.

Probably weapon engineering, most likely in chemical weapons, R&D type stuff. That might be army though, not marine corp, and more likely a lab than Iraq. Have a look at the air force too, they seem to like college graduates... More

Id be a superbadass marine, because I'd make myself some awesome steroids and then I'd start building lazer guns to carry around.

Your degree(s) would earn you an officer's commission. You would most likely be assigned to R&D in some capacity.

Every Marine is a rifleman. So you'd be a really smart rifleman... More

If you had those degrees you would not have to ask. The combination of degrees is wrong. If you had any of these degrees you would join any other military branch other than the Marines.
