    I recently found out that I was deferred to A&M's PSA Program, meaning I will attend an A&M system school for a year before automatically transferring to College Station with a qualifying GPA and at least 24 hours done. So I'll be spending a year at Tarleton State, before transferring to A&M and joining the Corps. I plan to join E-2, seek a PLC slot and have a high interest in A&M's Recon Platoon. Do any current or former Ags know the standard procedure of transfers entering into the Corps? Thanks and Gig 'Em

    I believe that you'll need to one of the two squadrons that does out of sequence transfer students, such as Squadron 18. I would suggest contacting the Corps and asking them the process.

    I concur with Lawman. Incoming cadets who are upperclassman are placed in a special outfit to get caught up on what they have missed their freshman year in the Corps. They then transfer to other units. Check www.aggiecorps.org to get more details.

    How long does the "catch up" period usually last?

    I believe it is one semester.

    So after one semester I'd transfer over to a regular outfit?

    As I understand it, it is up to you. You could stay with that outfit or transfer to another one.
