My recruiter asked did I want airborne or air assault school in my contract. I always wondered could I do both. Like do airborne school first then air assault.

You can only get Airborne in a contract, in that you would attend Airborne school after AIT enroute to your assignment to 82nd, 173rd or some other Airborne assignment.
Air Assault is only "guaranteed" if your contract is for the 101st, then you would go to Air Assault school at Campbell sometime in your first year there.
If you want both, get Airborne in your contract, and keep asking for Air Assault after you get to your unit.

Get everything you can in a contract, but no, there's no "guaranteed" air assault school unless you go to the 101st or another air assault unit.
An airborne unit will eventually send you to air assault school if you request it. There is an air assault unit that travels around the globe teaching at different posts, so you'll have the opportunity.

Easy choice. Get airborne. It's easier to get an air assault slot later in your career.
