  • Actual BCT Length

    I was wondering what the length of BCT with travel time, processing, etc. I ask because I was offered an internship in Washington, DC and it is too good to pass up. I want to attend BCT before the internship begins on June 3rd. However, if I can't finish basic and be in DC by the beginning of June I will wait likely wait until January 2014 to join the guard. I would rather not do that though. Will they be able to give me any guarantees at MEPS? Can you give me an idea of the latest I should be shipping to BCT? Thanks!

    Take the internship. BCT is 10 - 14 weeks depending on Reception. You'd have leave tomorrow to get back by 1 June.

      I leave sunday. The earliest I can get back is May 9th. Also, you can't get slots fast enough with most MOS due to AIT requirements.
