Greetings, I'm currently in my MSII year and I am a scholarship contracted cadet under a 4 year scholarship (with extended benefits for a 5 year program). We had a reserve recruiter come today and talk to us about joining the reserve while in rotc. I had a few questions on whether or not this is feasible. a) If I am already contracted/scholarship, will I need to attend BCT/AIT? I don't mind not receiving MGIB benefits (again, scholarship), but is it obligatory to join a unit? b) Will this alter the status of my scholarship? I'm on a 5-year program for engineering and don't want to mess with that seeing that i'm only in year 2. c) How will cadre react? I'm fairly competitive as an MSII (3.94 GPA, 300+ APFT, Ranger Challenge, ETC.) Will they be pissed if i elect to go reserve? d) Does my 8year service commitment start before I commission? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
