Re: Split Training Option & Simultaneous Membership Program
congrats on your planning. You are getting an unbelievable head start on your peers! If your plans proceed as you wish right now, you should be working on stripes for skills and will almost certainly enter basic as an E-2. Hopefully you will be promoted to E-3 before AIT. The bigger payoff comes from your TIS when you start to SMP. If my calcs are correct, if you start SMP as a soph, you will be getting E-5 pay over 3 years. By the time you get to the biggest payoff, OBC, you will be an O-1 over 6 years, while some of your peers will be getting O-1 over 2. Huge difference.
