I am not sure that I understand the basic process from AFROTC enrollment to commissioning. Hopefully somebody can clear things up for me. Below is the basics of how I think it works. Step 1: Join AFROTC do well in school, PFA, etc Step 2: Contract at beginning of sophomore year if on scholarship Step 3: Compete for a Field Training Slot for the summer after sophomore yr. (If you don't get a field training slot this is the end of the road for you?) Step 4: All cadets that completed Field Training may now contract Step 5: Complete junior and senior year and continue to do well. Step 6: Commision as an officer in a field of the AF's choosing which hopefully matches up with your desires. Am I close to right? Is the process any different at the SMC's where active duty is guaranteed?
