After not receiving the AROTC Scholarship on the 2nd board, I went ahead and enlisted in the Army National Guard on an 8 year contract. I'll be going to the University of South Carolina the spring semester after I ship for basic in August. I am in the process of enrolling right now, and am going to enroll in ROTC. Once I graduate and commission, will I be able to commission into active duty despite currently being in the Guard? Also, if I were to get the AROTC Scholarship for the remaining 3 years while at college, will it supercede my Guard contract and allow me to commission into active duty?
