What do you need to score to be an MP because I got a 49 with a GT of 107 and might retake if its not good enough.
I don't know what my ASVAB score was ,but my IQ test came back 130. That was in 1984. I think I'm stupider now though.
I'm not sure on what the score should be, but I scored an 86 on my asvab, don't remember/have the paperwork on me to tell you what my GT score was.
MP qualification is determined by the 'ST' sub score in the ASVAB, not the GT. MOS requirements are listed in DA Pam 611-21.

Got a 115 on ST portion.
My physical profile is 111111. Is that a problem?
Quite the opposite,
1 means fully capable. It's the 3 that you want to avoid.
If for any reason I do not meet the ASVAB score requirement for MP will I have the opportunity to retake the exam? If not, will I later have the opportunity to request or target an MP career?
The ASVAB can be retaken. There may be a minimum time between tests, ask a recruiter about that.
ASVAB scores may be waived by the State AG (for National Guard) or the proponent school (i.e. MP School, Fort Leonard Wood) for reclass soldiers, but not initial entry as far as I am aware. Again, ask a recruiter.
For re-classing Soldiers, the TAG cannot waive your minimum ST score as far as I am aware (I speak only for the MP field). As for the MP Proponent, they WERE doing 3 point waivers but those have been severely curtailed.
BLUF: If you took the ASVAB after 1 JUL 2004 and don't have a 91 or better on the ST portion, you're going to have a hard time getting into the MP Corps.
EVERYTHING is waiverable, nothing is carved in stone.
It used to be, to become an MP required a 105, or better, GT score. I personally knew two MPs who had GTs in the 50s. They had no business being in the Army, let alone in the MPs.
Well, nothing is carved in stone, you're right. However, in the 21 years I've been in, GT score has never been a factor for MP's. ST score was the ASVAB section that was and is important. And it hasn't been a 105 in the ST score. It was a 95, lowered to a 92 and is now a 91, IF they took the ASVAB sfter 7/1/04.
And I'm telling you, from dealing with Proponent(USAMPS) on a regular basis in my full-time duty position that the Proponency SGM is not giving out waivers without very compelling evidence the unit and Soldier have made "valiant efforts" to try to get that Soldier to get that 91 ST score. We're talking study sessions, re-training, multiple attempts at the test, etc.
Frankly, we don't NEED to lower the MP standards anymore. We need to be raising them.
I always thought it would be interesting if MPs had to be **** tested monthly. I know it would have thinned the ranks, at first.
When I was a Grunt, they'd come in and test a whole Company at one time. Give you a cup and herd everyone into the dayroom. To get out, you handed them your full cup.
Then, they went to random testing and never had to do another in the next 17 years.
We'd be fine with that. UA usually gets at least a couple when done in a company-sized unit. Good riddance. And the way they do it now, they randomly select a percentage every month or so. We're still getting tested about every 12-18 months or so. Of course, CT's a small state with less than 3000 Guardsmen...
As bad as it is in MP units, it's worse in the Infantry BN I'm told by a couple of their 1SG's...
I worked a Nuke Site in Germany. I think it would have cleaned out half the unit. Including some of the Officer's and the 1SG.
I've heard that from more than one MP who worked the nuke sites. Was this the 70's to early 80's by chance?
That's about the timeframe I've heard all those stories from. Lots of those guys(not the druggies) came into the Guard and were still in when I joined in 1987. Between them and the VietNam vets it made Desert Storm a very interesting deployment...
Interesting times. An Officer or NCO didn't go to the third floor of our barracks alone. Nothing was ever done about it.
According to the COC, it was all the NCOs fault.
VERY different Army from nowadays...
