I received word yesterday from Cadre that I have been selected to attend Wet Point this summer on internship to the Army Cyber Institute. While I wait for additional information to be sent down in regards to what will be expected of me, has anyone here attended ACI or the internship itself? I have heard that I can earn an Additional Skill Identifier upon completion and that it can open doors to Cyber, however info seems limited on the web and I wish to know if I could request Cyber upon completion.

Being as you're apparently going to be right there, you might care to drop over and have a look at this...I'd been Army ROTC 3 yrs. before going USAF OTS instead, the unit I was in, which no longer exists, trained a good deal at West Point, so I got a quite good look at cadet life day to day, as well as trained with them on the obstacle course, orienteering range, and rappelling cliff...there are ones for Annapolis as well as USAFA as well, if you'd be inclined to look them up, I did know of one airman where I'd been assigned, who got directly into USAFA without the USAFA prep school, so I do know it most definitely can be done....

I follow...sorry, sometimes I just get on a roll, as you've no doubt observe, and just send a flurry of suggestions as they occur to me to look up, one after another...I gather there's apparently some kind of way to send multiple suggestion links on a single entry? If I could do it that way, I could obviously try to condense it all, so far as possible, of course, I'd obviously gladly try to do it that way, certainly, if you might be able to elaborate as to how...sometimes, on the Android tablet I use, I gather that might not be possible, I'd clearly have to be on the PC, I'd expect, I'll try to send fewer in a single flurry, or ask if someone wants more...however, if you might be able to elaborate as to how to condense such website suggestions into a single submission, that'd obviously help, of course...the only thing that occurs to me in asking that is that I might lose the thumbnail paragraph below each link, I always kind of hope that seeing that, if a link loads properly, might spark interest to look at it, you know? However, I'll obviously do whatever you could possibly suggest, of course, by all means....

You might want to see if going there could give you a chance at this, I'd read on here awhile back, or seen online somewhere, that Navy had evidently reopened it's WO1 warrant program for cyber, look through these, I think you'll find them of interest, honest....

Yes there seems to be very limited information about branching Cyber in the Army unless it is via Direct Commision through OCS. 17As are slated as entry level but when doing Talent Compass Management Cyber is not even an option when doing branch preference.

That's why I'd mentioned that newer Navy WO1 cyber thing for warrants...elaborate when you have time, if you can, how much exposure you've had generally, associates, bachelors, coursework, grades, GPAs, interests, hobbies, reading, do a biosketch so I can get a grasp of you mind, I have an interest in career/educ stuff, I might be able to suggest other possibilities for you besides those I'd sent in here, honestly, the more you send in by way of explanation, the more I and others on here can suggest, truly...go into all the STEM stuff you've taken, math, physics, chem, bio, engineering, comp sci (CS), IT, whatever you've done, AP credits in high school, also, call DANTES and the Amer Council on Educ (ACE) and get mil transcripts for your tech training if you haven't done so thus far...I also figured you might find the website here of use...additionally, do you have any flight interests at all? I generally ask that as well when I yak with someone new about what they want to try to accomplish...do you want senior enlisted? Warrant? Commissioned? ROTC? Green to Gold (I heard about something called Hip Pocket, I still don't know what that is, related to it)? SMP? Would you be willing to go intersvc? Have you looked at doing so at all? Would you want a military college at all, like the sites and searches I'd sent in thus far go into? What programming languages have you done? How much computing architecture? Compilers? Data structures? Switching and/or finite-state automata theory? Numerical analysis? Scientific programming? Trust me, I've been through pretty much everything, I assure you, get as technical as you like, so far as you care to, at least in general, of course, as I'd said, the more you relate, the more I and others might be able to suggest, obviously...also, how long is the curriculum there, if you're able to say at all? Is the program degree and/or certificate granting at all? If so, which degrees and/or certificates? I'd be most eager to hear more, whenever you have time, no rush, OK? Also, honestly, if you're actually going, I generally have found that a straightforward phone call to them, to speak with faculty and/or admin in such a place is actually a quite good way to learn more, when I went USAF OTS, I had to pick between five installations, I had all of about a week to do it, needless to say, that wasn't enough time, as I'd been rushed to get ready to leave...so, if you're able to actually call them, and if it could be allowed, see if you can ask, honest, five minutes of conversation tends to be worth five hours of web searching...a picture really is worth a thousand words, you know?
