Hello Everyone, I have a question about the first two years of Air Force ROTC....While doing my two years of prerequisites before nursing school
I didn't think I had enough time for ROTC (working full time, school full time, etc) and was thinking that I may enlist anyways so I didn't take advantage of it. Now that I'm in nursing school (and didn't enlist) and know that direct commissions can be very difficult to achieve (especially as a new grad), I'm kicking myself for not doing ROTC from the start. I guess there was a possibility it wouldn't have worked anyways since my nursing school made us take our first semester in the summer when ROTC would have had field training, but it still bothers me that I didn't try it.
I know that the first two years of AFROTC don't obligate you to anything and you won't have any scholarships
from them or anything, so I was wondering - does anyone know if it would be ok for me to take the first year of AFROTC starting next fall during my senior year in nursing school? Or would they look down on that, knowing that I wouldn't be able to finish it? Would it mess up anything related to getting a direct commission? I'm really anxious to get some military experiences and I think it would really help me develop better leadership skills while I'm still in school...any advice is appreciated!
