So i have had my first month of AROTC so far and I absolutely love it so far. I honestly dont like my school that much, but I love ROTC and my detachment. Its has only reaffirmed that a military carer is what I want. Might be a little premature to say that so early, but I do love it. With that being said one thing that has been made pretty clear to me so far is that getting an active duty slot is going to hard and probably even harder in 4 years when it is my turn. So my questions is can you transfer to an SMC such as Texas A&M or Virginia Tech and join the corps of cadets as a sophomore? I am assuming it would be to late to try anything for spring. Also I am on a 3 year AD, so any details on how that could work. Also my desire to transfer to a SMC is not just toe make sure I get an active duty slot, but I want more of a "military" experience and the unique experience A&M and Tech over with the corps of cadets and the traditional students seems like an awesome experience.
