  • How long did it take you for BOLC?

    Just curious to see the length of time some of you guys were away for your Bolc or branch training. Im trying to get a good idea on how long i might be gone, and if i can do BOLC within a summer so that I wont miss any school.

        I am an Engineer. Most branches are between 4 and 5 months with some longer.

                Yes. I was MI and I was at Ft H about a week after graduation and there was no way to get back in time to start school for the Fall semester.

                      Don't choose a branch based on BOLC length...

                        I second Lance's input. Being an officer in the National Guard is going to require sacrifice on your part. You're going to have to miss things. School is just one of them. It's become a running joke to my wife. Her immediate response when we get invited to something is that I probably have drill. Planning vacation around drill and AT becomes an art form. Planning anything in the future can be a nightmare, since we often don't have the next FY drill calendar until after AT.

                        You can pick AG or QM if you want. Be aware, though, that depending on how your state does branch selections, and what branches are actually available in your state, you may not get what you want. Even if you do, you may not get that summer BOLC class you're shooting for.

                            It might not if you go in the fall, winter or spring. It might take up those seasons instead.

                            Infantry is 16 weeks.

                              Exactly! He would miss seasons instead of semesters.
