So I've been kind of up in the wind with regard to my BOLC dates since commissioning in May. I finally managed to talk to the BOLC scheduler at the NGB headquarters a few days ago, and this morning, I got an email saying that the closest available BOLC date is May. I was really hoping for December or January, but I guess that didn't happen.

As a cadet, I was interested in pursuing a GBR slot, but I didn't really pursue it all that hard when I couldn't get adequate information. Because it's still only six months till BOLC, it'll be hard for me to get a civilian job for now, but that's the timeframe one can be a GBR. Any advice on getting a National Guard GBR slot for the Spring 2016 semester? I live in Virginia just outside DC, and I'm open to going anywhere I might be needed.

The first rule for Army schools in this time of tight budget constraints is to go at your first opportunity & don't delay short of endangering your family, etc. To do so is to risk your military career. I would reach out to CPT (Join to see) . If he doesn't have the answer, he will probably be able to point you in the right direction.

Talk to the ROTC Professors of Military Science about GBR order availability. Also talk to the Virginia National Guard Officer Manager/Recruiter for GBR availability. I did GBR for 3 months before going to BOLC, there were orders available through Cadet Command for my ROTC Brigade. The PMS should be able to find out for you.
