It is the end of my freshman year, and I would like to enroll in SMP. Because I do not have schedule space to put both my 100 and 200 level ROTC courses in next year, I would like to do basic training this summer to get the 100's out of the way. The most important thing is that I do not get pulled out of university--so heres my question: How soon after I contract with Army National Guard do I have to contract with ROTC so that I am not deployed? I can officially join the guard in a few days, but I will have to pass the army pt before I can contract with ROTC, and, I just blew out my arm today. Advice?! Thanks alot, prospective cadet.
