The road back into the regs from the reserves may not be as smooth /straightforward as you'd like it to be. We recently discussed the feasibility of doing a CT/OT (U) to Log and the Outlook was bleak to say the least. In this thread:lohocard said:I also considered switching to reserves/or releasing after my first contract to finish up my degree and then come back later on to the regs as an officer. This is because my trade is super red and hard to get out of if you’re still in a contract.
All that to say, switching to the reserves to do a degree isn't a "bad" option. We'll give you $2k a year for school and a decent part time wage, especially if you come out as a Cpl. A few guys have done it recently and fit in fairly well with no issues. I can't add anything else to the conservation, but it's definitely som ething to consider.
