I'm thinking about getting involved in the SMP program, but I'm not looking to get shipped off before I get my degree (I'd be pretty pissed if I got sent to Iraq with just weekend national guard training.. I'd enlist and get real training if I wanted to do that). I'm definitely looking to go in to the Army as an officer and I'm ok with going to the middle east, but I'm definitely trying to get my degree first. I guess my question is.. is SMP designed to give ROTC cadets extra training or is it designed to get more people on the reserve lists? Can SMP students get shipped off before graduation? I want to go into the recruitment office with a little background so I don't make any stupid moves.
