yeah. It's just pretty difficult to 'guarantee' you're going to get a job you really want, and even if you do, to 'guarantee' you will really like it the way you thought you would. Of course that's true of anything in life, not just the military.
Hard to go wrong though, they will try to fool you at the recruiter, please take somebody with you to talk to them who has been in. Not necessary to be rude or call them out but you should have somebody hearing what you're being told who will know what is real and can help you wade through what's important.
Some college used to get you a couple of stripes right out of basic, starting your pay at a higher level. A 2 year degree used to get you eligible for warrant officer, though I know almost nothing about them since the AF retired their last WO about the time I got in. A 4 year degree and you can try to be an officer.
You will likely do quite well on the ASVAB and they will be falling over each other for you, offering you signing bonuses and such. You need help knowing what is worth while.
