I'm 17 and I have been talking to a recruiter about the National Guard's Split Option program. I'm also trying to get into VMI on a ROTC scholarship(I'm a junior in high school). Assuming all goes well, what are the chances of getting an active duty commission(not AGR) doing both the National Guard and ROTC? I haven't signed any papers yet and that is why I am here asking this question before my dad and I sign anything. Any help will be much appreciated.
