Hello! Since getting denied into USAFA and USNA I haven't had a back up plan (My dad screwed EVERYTHING up; no ROTC scholarship, etc) and I saw this opportunity to still become an officer in USAF. I wanted to join the Air Force Reserves right out of high school for the 4 year contract and still attend college in the fall. I know the Air Force doesn't have an SMP program like the army where you get be in AFROTC and Reserves at the same time plus split AIT and basic. I wanted to know if I could do basic training this summer and do Tech school next summer. The college I wanted to attend costs $20,000 a year and the GI bill will cover like $300 a month + the kicker which is like $250 a month? + TA which is like $4500 a year + I have a scholarship from the college that pays $1k a year. Any other money I can come up with to help pay for the student loans I'm GOING to have to take out? Along with that, I wanted to know if anyone else has done this route. From what the recruiter on the phone said to me, after you contract with AFROTC you have to cancel your contract with the reserves and AFROTC will pay for the last 2 years of college? I dunno; just need help!
