I was on the fence about guard vs active duty and leaned more towards active duty but my recruiter was kind of pushy about me joining the guard, I later found out he was changing from recruiting to retention so he wanted to meet a quota, I was also told I would be able to use my GI bill right after basic which I later found out was bull, my whole reason joining the guard before active duty was to do college but I can’t, Is there a way to switch to active duty if I haven’t gone to basic yet, but did swear in?

It's possible. You need to contact an AD recruiter. You will need a DD Form 368 Conditional Release, which must be signed by your first general level officer in the chain of command (usually TAG). This form will remain valid for six months from the date it was signed. The AD recruiter will assist you in filling out the form, but you'll have to route it through your NG chain of command.
PVT (Join to see) Yes, I did this going from Air Force NG to Army Active. Kind of a dirt bag move but I did but you can do it they just take over your packet. I did it because I got laid of my job at the time in 2010 and wanted stability for my family. Like LTC (Join to see) said talk to an AD recruiter.
