What branch?
What was basic training and the pay like?
What is your job? 
Do you like it?
Is there anything the recruiter didn't tell you that you wish you had known?

I am interested in joining the coast guard and was wondering if anyone has any advice, even if you are in a different branch. I took the practice asvab and had an average of 80% (in all subjects/sections).

You just need to talk to recruiters. They will answer those questions. But the main question you did not ask is WHAT IS THE DEPLOYMENT ROTATION?

Not that I can find Cry They are mostly white men. Not that I don't like white men but I just want to  hear what military life is like from an enlisted person. I expect recruiters to tell me what I want to hear so I can sign the contract.

I strongly encourage anyone joining the military to go into the Air Force. As a former Army wife and now working at a trade school, living in a city that has Air Force and Army bases, Air Force jobs are the most like civilian's and it's usually easier to transition back into and find work in the public sector. It all depends upon your MOS. If you are in the Army and get a non combat MOS, you should be ok. But if you get Artillery, Cavalry, Infantry, Transportation ,etc type of MOS', you will likely find it hard to find employment once you get out. Medical, Human Resources, etc MOS's will be better later.
My ex hubby did 20 yrs in the Army, 5 of which he was a recruiter and has told our kids he doesn't want them to join the Army and if they do, which MOS' to select. (all non combat) Your ASVAB scores will determine which MOS's you qualify for.
 
 The Air Force and Navy are looked at to be more elite than the Army and Marines. My daughter wanted to go into the Air Force but they do not have a veterinarian MOS, so she will be going into the Army as an officer once she is done w/vet school.
