No. In fact, depending on your state, it could prevent you from accessing active duty.
The only "guaranteed" active duty commission for the U.S. Army is:
graduation from USMA or
satisfactory graduation from AROTC at one of the six Senior Military Colleges (SMC's) with approval of the Army PMS. (VMI, The Citadel, Virginia Tech, TAMU, UNG, Norwich) **
This is from the NMMI ECP Handbook and website:
Can I still “go active duty” after graduating from NMMI and commissioning?
from the Army ROTC Early Commissioning Program?
The short answer is “yes”. However, no one is guaranteed Active Duty coming out of ROTC. As
the name states, it is the Reserve Officer Training Corps.
As an Early Commissioning Program (ECP) Cadet, you will be commissioned upon graduation
from NMMI and will be required to serve with the National Guard or Army Reserve until you fin-
ish your bachelor's degree. Cadets must agree in writing that they will accept an appointment, if
offered, as a commissioned officer in the ARNG or the USAR of the United States; and that you
will serve in such component for not less than eight years, as required by Section 2107, Title 10,

So then how difficult is it to transfer to AD?
Can you clarify your question? Transfer from where? Or is transfer the correct term?
Your history of posts includes USNA, USMMA and NROTC and ECP.
A frame of reference would help.
From Reserves or NG.
It depends on the needs of the Army at the time you are preparing to commission, and where you rank overall in your battalion. It is done.
Commissioning into AD is one thing.
Transferring from reserves to AD after being commissioned into reserves is quite different especially for an officer.
I will agree with Bull on this. PRETTY DIFFICULT if not impossible.
Did you revoke your GRFD control number prior to leaving MJC? The last word I got was GRFD revocation has not been trending in favor of the Cadet.
You forgot one more Green to Gold.
That is only true of the Green to Gold Active Duty Option.
