Going into the Air Force this May, I have some questions.?

Hey everyone, I'm new here and figured this would be the best place to ask questions. I'm 20 years old and planning on joining the Air Force this May. I'm finishing up my Associates degree, (64 college credits) before I enlist. I had a few questions about some enlistment. 1. I know with an A.A. Degree I can go in as an A1c/E3, I also want to choose the 6 year enlistment. Will this enable me to rank up faster? This is more out of curiosity than personal greed-I want to be in the Air force because I want to serve my country. 2. When I took the Asvab when I was 17, I scored around an 82 on it (very high in General science and Electronics). The Jobs I was looking into were Weather Specialist, Space Systems Operations, Pharmacy Specialist, Public Affairs, Paralegal, and Logistic support. (they seem the most interesting, and I have an obsessive personality that would make me a great fit into a job that captures my interest.) What are these jobs like? Do they offer college credits? 3. Can i continue my education for a bachelors or higher while in the USAF? If I go in with an A.A Degree, and choose a program like Weather (72 college credits) how does it translate towards an undergrad degree? 4. Although this may be hard to answer, how long is the DEP for those career fields? 5. Is it difficult to raise a family on an enlisted Salary? 6. what can I do to get myself into better shape for BMT. I'm 175cm/5'9 by 170lbs. 7. My final question is, what is air force life like? no one in my family was in the air force (everyone was in all the other branches, so I only know what the Marines or Army is like ((everyone who was in the navy, fought in WWII and are no longer with us)) ) Thanks for taking the time to look over my questions. I've wanted to serve in the Air force since I was 10, I didn't enlist out of high school because I had broken my foot right after graduation and my parents had asked me to complete at least an A.A Degree. I was considering transferring to a University, but my sister is about to graduate and attend college herself. I don't want to be a financial burden on my folks, so that is another motivation. - Joe Oops, I meant to say I'm going to enlist this may (not ship out) Sorry for the poor clarification.
