I apologize in advance if this has recently been covered, but after searching I could not find the info I was looking for. After two years in AFROTC and being dis-enrolled due to not making SFT (grades too low), DS was encouraged (by the detachment commander) to consider joining AROTC. He just completed the orientation for new AROTC students, and is happy with this change in direction. He will be starting with the Army as a second-year student which is what he wanted, as it will give him the opportunity to retake a couple of classes he did not do well in. So, here is the question: What is the soonest he could become contracted? Thank you.
