I have enlisted into the Army Reserves and will complete BCT and AIT next year. I am planning to join ROTC at school afterwards through the SMP program for Army Reserve soldiers. However, I will only have two years of school remaining at the time. So to be able to skip the first two years of ROTC, will I have to attend LTC even though I have already completed BCT and AIT? If I am required to attend LTC, can I join ROTC in the spring and then complete LTC the following summer? Or will I have to first complete LTC before being able to contract with ROTC?
