"If you do decide to go enlisted and then ROTC, I must caution you on one thing. If you go to ROTC as an enlisted member who has combat experience, a deployment or even basic training under your belt you may hate ROTC. You will be surrounded by…"

"That's what I thought, but I'm neither a reservist or guardsman, so I don't know the nuances of those realms."

"If you're gonna go enlisted, you will stay enlisted until the d of your contract. That's just way to roundabout of a way, when you could just join ROTC, still go to the field, still do all the super hooah army stuff, and get commissioned…"

"Yeah, you gotta pick one or the other. I'd suggest talking to an Army officer recruiter and let him explain the details of how ROTC works"

"What he said.  Besides once you're 18 there's nothing your parents can keep you from doing.  Yes, they'll be upset and sad, maybe mad but they, if they love you, will come to support you."

"If you are wanting to go officer, it would be wiser to try to enroll into ROTC. You won't actually be in the Army until you graduate and are commissioned, and it won't interfere with your education (would actually complement it). And they…"

"I know nothing of the military, but i've led various research projects and assignments at uni; make sure you get to know the people, and be friendly to them. Admiration goes a lot further than fear."
