Hey guys, I just wanted to ask a couple of questions regarding the Army's SMP Program. It looks like I need to start looking at other options since the time of scholarship offers is quickly winding down. As a back up plan, I have been looking at the SMP Program. I've done a fair amount of research on it and its benefits, but had a couple questions I'm sure someone on here would have an answer to: 1). I've read on some websites and forums that you can only join a reserve unit under the SMP Program in your Junior Year. I would assume that you could join a unit as long as you are older than 18, Is that correct? 2). In order to get the G.I. Bill benefits, do you have to have gone to BCT? 3). Under the SMP program, you are non-deployable, correct? Is that just something you have to make sure you get assured when you sign your contract or is it automatic? 4). Would you recommend going to BCT prior to joining a Reserve unit or does that really not make a difference since you will be commissioning? 5). Are SMP cadets on the same OML as regular cadets? That's all for now, thanks guys!
