Spent two days at MEPS this week (finished my physical) and had to schedule a consult for the pins and plate in my wrist. I'm going to take the DLAB on my next trip and hopefully do well enough to do crypto linguist.

two years later.

scored 4 points to low on the dlab to qualify for linguist, so i ended up going open mechanical and shipping feb 2010. ended up picking aircraft armament because it had the highest asvab qualifying score and i thought it would be the most challenging. ended up getting my dream base (eglin) working with the f15 and a10. currently working on my upgrade training.
