    Internship and Camp Dates

    If you get an internship in the summer you're supposed to go to camp, could you request to get a regiment that works around your internship dates? Or are you just out of luck?

    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?

    DS flew from San Diego to Georgia for a few weeks before he reported to Norwich U so he flew from San Diego to Orlando to Vermont. He was denied travel reimbursement because his flight had to be direct from San Diego to his school. Is there anyway around that like an average flight travel...

    Army ROTC Medical Questions

    I’m a sophomore in college right now and I was planning on joining the ROTC. My plan was to take a year off college, enlist in the regular army first, and then join the ROTC as an SMP. (I know that you don’t have to enlist beforehand but I want to do it.) So the problem is that recently I was...

    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?

    Competitiveness

    Hello all, So, I basically spend my life at a horse barn a lot, go to the gym and do volunteer work at the thoroughbred track a day a week. It’s obviously probably not going to help me with a ROTC high school scholarship. So, my question is, what are things that help to get the scholarship...

    Eating disorder waiver

    hello! So, when I was around 13 (16 now), my doctor diagnosed me with anorexia and had me go to a counselor. That said, I never really had a problem and the counseling was pointless. I wasn’t stressed even with all the family things that were going on. Anyways, is it possible to get a...
