I'm currently an E-5 w/ 6 years in the National Guard and expecting to get out in Feb 2016. However, I won't be notified until April (projected notification date) if I'll be selected into OCS-R.
I still want to stay in the military even if I don't get selected for CG OCS-R. But I'm wondering if its better to transition into IRR and try my luck with selection or extend my ARNG enlistment and keep trying until I get selected - at which I would need to do a conditional release.
Any advice or suggestions?
edit: I should add, I want a full time career in the military (ideally CG AD Officer), but am certain on eventually leaving the NG for a such an opportunity
