    Recruiting problem

    I am trying to enlist in the US Army. My recruiter had submitted waivers for some surgeries I had when I was younger. They got approved but he "forgot" to put in a Med form for a hernia I had repaired. I asked if he could add it and he told me that I could only submit one waiver and I was just...

    AGR

    I know that the Active Guard Reserve is an option for officers. From what I have seen, you cannot commission into the AGR from ROTC, as"you must be pending discharge from your component" (usar.army.mil). Is it hard to get into AGR as an officer before your discharge? Is it very competitive...

    National Scholarship Winner

    I won a 4-year national scholarship out of high school. I am now an MSIII. Does this guarantee that I'll get active duty if I put in for it? My PMS said he never heard of a 4 year winner not getting active.

    Guarantee Active Duty?

    I'm an MSIII cadet in Army ROTC. I know some scholarships are guaranteed National Guard and Reserves. Are there any scholarships that are guaranteed active? PS I am already contracted. Can I get that contract changed to guaranteed active duty if that option exists?

    Gold Bar Recruiter

    How does the application to become an Army ROTC Gold Bar recruiter work? When does the application process? Do you apply only after you get your BOLC dates? How do you apply? Who do you contact? Do you apply to a specific school? Can you apply to more than one school?

    Job Within MOS After Commissioning

    When you get assigned your branch, how much choice do you have over what specifically you'll be doing? For instance, if you branch Armor, how can you choose whether you're in a tank platoon or cavalry? Or for Engineering, how can you choose combat vs non-combat engineering?

    TAB Test

    What exactly is the TAB Test? I took it MSI year and I'll have to take it again now that I'm an MSIII. Does it affect your branching or component at all? Army ROTC by the way. All info is welcome. Thanks!
