I am trying to vent out and see what my possibilities might be. I was in AFROTC for two years awhile back and did not get an EA for field training so I voluntarily left. Fast forward a couple years and I am now an A1C in the Air National Guard and even though I love my base and the people around me, I have a desire to return to ROTC and finish what I started. The issue that is a barrier to this idea is that my GPA is horrible from my stupidity as a young college student. My thought is that it might be wise for me to retake some of the classes that I did poorly in to boost my GPA. I think that a non-technical major is probably the smartest route for me at this point as it would boost my GPA the most. Does anyone know the specific guideline for how they calculate GPA? For instance, if I retake a class that has an F is only the new grade counted or are both counted? Are there any other factors that might be more unique to someone who is prior service? If I try and get a deployment under my belt before returning to ROTC would it help my chances of pulling this off? One thing I saw on the AFROTC website was mention of a conditional release, what exactly does that mean in my situation? Anyways, thanks for reading my rambling post. Any insight people have would be greatly appreciated!
