  • Need advice

    Hey everyone,
    Just needed some advice. A bit of back story, I am currently an E-3 in the USMC Reserve here in CO. I am looking at going back to school and my GI Reserve bill only covers about 40%. I don't really want to take student loans out again to cover the rest of the cost of school and I have been talking to the NG about possibly filling out a DD-368 ( I know that can take awhile for my chain of command to process) and if they approve it I could switch to the NG and apply to my local ROTC program. Possibly alleviating the issue of the money needed for school. I dont want to go active and I know in the Marines I may only see Cpl or Sgt before I get out. I just want to lead and I believe the NG could be where I could do it. I would like to know of anyone else attempting this or even if its possible. Any advice from former Marines or prior enlisted officers would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you all.
