I am currently interested in programs at universities (Iowa State, Purdue) allowing for a BS/MS degree in mechanical engineering, where one with advanced academic standing can apply for grad school early, and start 500/600 classes during their 7th and 8th semesters in order to finish an MS in five years. To give context to my particular situation, I will have 47 college credits from AP and concurrent enrollment courses on graduation, and am planning on knocking out gen eds at a local extension college once confirmed as transferable at my future institution. First off, is it even feasible to be a highly active participant in AFROTC and complete a BS in engineering in four years without the technical major one year scholarship extension? And more importantly, would the Holm Center (or another scholarship controlling entity) be willing to invoke the technical major extension or another type of extension for the purposes of obtaining an MS? I have heard of a cadet at Purdue completing his MS in a concurrent engineering program before being commissioned, so it seems there are scenarios where the AF deems it reasonable/necessary for their future officers to have that sort of education. I also plan on discussing these questions during my next detachment visit. Thanks for all your help on this question.
