    For Army: If you go through ROTC in college and get your commission then you go to officer basic course (typically 3 months).

    yeah i know about college rotc, i have a degree and almost did rotc for my masters but financially i could not financially just quit and go to college for 2 years with the small stipen they paid plus the army leadership training coarse in fr knox was the biggest fubar i have ever been a part of

    so becoming a 90 day wonder (or whatever its called) is my option now, so would i go to basic then to an officer basic or just go to basic then officer job training?

    no dude 9 week basic is FOR ENLISTED ONLY. you do officers version of basic and then the officer branch course depending on what branch you do.

    You are called a Candidate till you recieve your commission, check that link that i already fuckin posted it has more info than you can handle I guarantee it, it's why the OCS Foundation exists utilize it for the resource that it is, if you look they even help with ways to get money for degree completion(higher level in ur case).

    1. Do you already have your degree?
    2. Are you in college or going to go to college and go into ROTC?
    3. Are you currently enlisted in the army and going to go through OCS?

    i just got my commission as an Army officer on september 1
    let me shed some light on my pipeline

    i was too late for ROTC and didnt want to do another 4 years in college to go to west point. i went to the recruiters and told them i wanted to be an officer and get my commission through OCS.

    i basically enlisted as a specialist since i had a degree but my contract specifically stated taht i would be going to OCS so I didnt have to choose an MOS. after 9 weeks of BASIC (supposedly 14 as of june 1, 2005).

    after graduating from BASIC i went to OCS and was promoted to sergeant...after 14 weeks of hell i became a 2LT and now i am at ft leonard wood awaiting the start of my officer basic course

    hope this helps :)
