Current Situation:
I am currently a contracted cadet in his 3rd year of college. I signed a 3yr MinuteMan scholarship to go into the National Guard after commissioning. I do not want to go ARNG after college and want AD. However, my contract does not allow me to go AD. I have been told that if someone recycles in my BOLC class and they have an AD slot then I can take it and go AD after BOLC. Is this true?
Is it possible for a newly commissioned officer (via ROTC) in the ARNG to go AD if someone in his class recycles? Is it possible to get an AD slot even after commissioning through ROTC during BOLC?

This is news to me but if someone recycles at BOLC then they just go to the next class and go to their unit after. You have to assess active duty to get active duty. If you took the minuteman scholarship it’s solely up to your state if you go Active Duty.

I would make this recommendation: learn about ADSW/ADOS Orders. Take as many of those assignments as possible and try to get a conditional release to Active Duty without burning a bridge.

Hopefully some of the S1 types will comment on this, but overall this sounds like a bunch of nonsense to me. Your best bet to go AD would be to see if you can opt out of the Minuteman Scholarship. If this is an option you would likely have to pay back whatever money you've received so far. You'll probably ruffle some feathers as well. The other option would be to seek a conditional release after commissioning. It can be done, but you'll have to be released by your state. I personally know 2 ARNG Officers who have transferred to AD in the last 18 months. Having taken a scholarship it is unlikely they'll do so, but not impossible.

Another option you could consider is the AGR program. Typically you need to be at least a CPT before you enter the program, so there would be a delay in eligibility for you. However, it is active duty for all intents and purposes short of which section of US code you fall under.

We have a 1LT who is either AGR or ADSW who is full time at our brigade. You can also put yourself on MOBCOP/Tour of Duty once you get OERs on your work history. There are hundreds of Officer slots open for tours from 30 days to a year or more. Many are at AD bases, locations worldwide or at the Pentagon. Some are branch immaterial. Learn your branch well. Maybe more available from CPT and up. You can only access from DOD computers at your unit with the Cac card.

There are 2LT-CPT AGR jobs in the ARNG. For the USAR, you can apply as a 2LT. But yes, more opportunities open up after command and after CCC.
