I've been reading a little and came across an option called the SMP. It states that while I'm in ROTC, I may enlist in an Army National Guard or Reserve unit, but am not required to attend BCT or AIT. I know the benefits of it and if I don't receive a scholarship, it's defiantly something I'm interested in. But I have a few questions. 1) When would I be able to enlist? Is it whenever I'm enrolled into ROTC or are there specific time frames? 2) Would the contract be (for lack of a better word) cancelled if I sign a contract to commission (say after 2 years, no scholarship) or recieved a 3 or 2 year scholarship? (I'm pretty sure it will but there's nothing wrong with triple checking). 3) Would I be able to use the GI Bill immediately, and would I be paid monthly or yearly? 4) I got accepted and plan on attending Norwich University. Would I have any time to complete BCT / AIT during the Summer? Also, would the MOS you choose ultimately help you recieve the branch you want (for example, enlist in Infantry and wanting to commission in infantry). Thank you!
