    Hey so I'm currently a sophomore and I'm planing to do the minimum active duty commitment. The whole reason I wanted to become an officer in the air force was because I "heard the call", it was something different from what my peers are doing and that it would make me a better leader. There are other things I want to do in life and when I'm in my late 20s I want to go back and get a job with a defense company (I'm an aerospace engineer).

    Are there any grads who have done the same thing here? Has anyone gone back to grad school (not AFIT, a civilian school)? A starting salary for an AE major is ~65 K, would a former AF officer get a higher salary, a management position?

    I'm looking way down the road but any input is appreciated.
