  • Questions about guard and ROTC.

    Currently I'm a junior in highschool and about to turn 17.
    I was talking to a recruiter and he had told me that I can put off basic for 280 day since there is no DEP for the NG.
    So that will probably be my option since I dont want to go active duty while enlisted.
    However, I do want to do college ROTC and go active officer.
    Will I be able to commission as active duty while enlisted in the National guard, and if so will I be deployed if I have an ROTC contract?
    I'm interested in this because the SMP program looks as though it could help me financialy through college and give me experience, but I'm not sure as to all the information since the recruiter at my school doesn't know that much about it.

    Last question, I have a 3.1 GPA, am on JROTC drill team, track, a volunteer fire fighter, have 3 extra credits, have 30 hours of community service, and scored a 1500 on my PSAT(Taking real one this year). Will this be enough to atleast get a contract for ROTC?
