I'm prior enlisted and have been accepted to prep school. I just have a few questions: 1) What do you do in between prep school graduation and BCT? I dont know if I should use my leave before or after prep school. 2) Are you authorized to wear prior occupational badges/ribbons at prep school/Academy? I know that AFI 36-2903 states prior service officers are allowed to wear the highest level occupational badge for their enlisted career field. 3) And to those who are priors: How does Prep school BMT/Academy BCT compare to Enlisted BMT? (The 6 1/2, not the new 8 1/2 BMT). 4)And finally, are prior-enlisted cadets treated worse than NPS cadets? Thanks!
