  • Can you go from e3 to O1 in national guard?

    Hi all, I just was wondering if you can go from e3 to O1? I just got my Associates degree in Criminal Justice plus have completed over 71 units and wanting to go an get my bachelors. I leave tomorrow to take the ASVAB test and get medical exam. My recruiter told me I can only go in as an e3 with an Associates degree and can't get anything high unless I have a bachelors. That's fine in all but can i really just go in as an e3 and work my way up to o1? I don't really see how that would work out? Any advise would be great. Thanks Justin

    Unless you are in a time crunch to enlist ASAP, you should complete 90 hours first & go 09S right off the bat. Another alternative would be an ROTC program.

    There are options out there, so do your research legwork and ask your recruiter about these options. If you haven't expressed any interest in this route, than you need to. On the other hand, if you have and your recruiter hasn't provided any info than you may need to reevaluate the situation once you are thoroughly informed.

      After Basic and AIT if you have enough credits and you have a 110 GT score from the ASVAB............happens all the time

        You'll have to attend a commissioning source (ROTC, OCS, USMA or DC) in order to be promoted to O-1. Can you be promoted from E-3 to O-1 simply because you are a rockstar and have a degree? No.

        And I don't think there has been a battlefield commission since Vietnam.....
