    Are you currently in the NG? If not then don't join, wait till you graduate college and then talk to an active duty recruiter. OR you can join the NG, go to basic and AIT and then contract with ROTC at the university and compete for an active duty commission. That of course is assuming you have any desire to become an officer. If not then the first stated course of action would be best. Once you are in the NG they will own you and getting released to go active is difficult. To compound the issue IF you get released then you will be considered prior service to the active component and your options will be very limited or there may be none at all. Active duty is going through a huge purge while they try to decrease the force.

    How would it work? I'd say 80% chance it wouldn't work unless you are going to an online school.
