I am contracting next week for a two year scholarship, and will complete AROTC during graduate school. I am sure to be the grandpa of my program at age 27, but obviously am honored, humbled, and excited! I can probably cover this with my cadre, but was wondering if anyone here has any insight - what are my chances of going active duty, assuming everything goes well and to plan and I get my commission (knock on wood)? I was under the impression I had to go active duty, which I thought was great - I REALLY WANT to go active duty. I read something today, however, saying that active duty spots are limited, and that at a certain point in "the rankings", cadets start getting assigned to Reserve and Guard duty post-graduation. I'm just hoping to get some clarification prior to signing. I'd love to get my graduate degree and stay where I am for two more years, but my #1 PRIORITY is serving as an officer. If I need to go to OCS to guarantee active duty, I might need to reconsider. Thank you for any information!
