I am on the verge of starting College. My parents want me to take the Early Commissioning Program since I want to become an Army officer

After my two years in a Junior College, will I be able to choose myself the 4-year college I need to complete my degree, or will the Army impose this college for me ?

You will be able to choose the college, you just need to complete your degree within a certain time frame.

Just remember that yu will most likely be required to commission into the National Guard or Reserves, your chance at Active Duty is slim through the ECP

What happens if I am posted in Maryland and want to go to a 4 year college in California ?

You will join the guard or reserves in the state you are attending your follow on school. Once you commission you will have to contact the guard strength officer in the state your school is in and pick a unit to drill with.

Sometimes they will allow you to be gone thru the summer months while school is not in session if the travel is not manageable. You might still have to go back for your 2 week summer AT though.

Once you graduate from your follow on school and if you move then you will have to transfer from that state's guard to wherever you are moving to.

I knew a kid from California that was an ECP that followed on at Norwich. He did not have to do his monthly summer drill but had to do his 2 week AT. Same for one for New Hampshire that went to school here in Missouri. He did travel every month but he had relatives here.
