When my contract ends i'm thinking of going active duty. The thing is, will i keep my rank if i keep the same mos or will i be demoted? This may seem like a stupid question, but If i end up changing my mos can i also keep my current rank? I just want to know if anyone has any similar experience with transitioning from NG to active duty. Thanks in advance.

Your best bet is to enlist into an MOS that is needed. 15W (Unmanned Aircraft Systems Operator) and 15E (Unmanned Aircraft Systems Maintenance) is undermanned, promotions are quick, they feed into a Warrant Officer MOS, UAS are the wave of the future, and they will only get better and under higher demand. While the rest of the Army is downsizing, 15W/15E/150U are only getting larger. If you like Aviation and like Computers then this is the MOS for you. Ok, I'm done recruiting now. Back to the war.
Rank normally remains unchanged when going from AGR to RA. Your recruiter will inform you of the variables during your chosen time to transfer services. My recommendation is for you to contact your local recruiter on Monday Morning to find out what your options currently are as positions will open monthly, sometimes quarterly and unfortunately in some cases only once for the year. Good luck with your decision, I think it's a good one.
