"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."

"Not true. There are a few programs that allow enlisted members to get their commission. You can be in the guard and also in rotc at the same time. It is called The Simultaneous Membership Program. Having already completed basic and AIT…"

"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"

"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…"
