    So, here's the question of the day.

    I'm graduating in december, giving serious consideration to trying to things that 90% of internet-soldiers don't have any respect for. ;)

    1) Joining the National Guard
    2) Going straight to OCS

    So, my question is this:
    Is it possible to get OCS as part of the enlistment contract? I know they won't promise a commission, but can they promise me an OCS slot?

    My background:
    24, in good shape, degree in Computer Sciene and Middle Eastern Studies. Work experience as EMT (6 months) and 4 years as a network monkey (low man on the totem pole)

    If you want to be an officer, you don't need to enlist. Just go speak with an officer recruiter. Your degree will help.

    To answer your specific question, no. If you enlist, you can't get a guaranteed slot at OCS.

    Officer recruiter? I wasn't aware there are different types of recruiters.
