If WestPoint is ONLY college I want to go to, would going active duty and applying for WestPoint as an enlisted soldier be too risky? I say this because if I take a 4 year scholarship to another school I would only be 21 when I commission, 2 years before the maximum age of applying at 23. If I was enlisted I would be able to apply 2 more years before I couldn't anymore. I know AD has 85 slots like reserver and NG. Would enlisting be too much of a risk, if anything I think It would make me a better officer.
