    Looking into joining. I’m older (39), with no prior military experience, but I’m thinking about the reserves. I’ve worked full time in IT since 2005 and I’m married with two kids. For what it’s worth, I’ve very physically fit. 

    My current employer, whom I’ve been with for 11 years, is military friendly and very accommodating. 

    Naturally I’m trying to protect my full time job, so I’m hoping I qualify for depot to minimize time away from work. My question is:

    -After boot camp or DEPOT, can I request several months before A school?  I’d be interested in ME, so I would most definitely need to go to an A school I’m assuming, since I have no law enforcement background 

    Thank you in advance

    If you're going into the Reserves, your A School date will be secured for you at time of enlistment. This is different than the active duty process where you graduate boot camp, go to your first unit, sign up for A School, and then wait for orders. In the Reserves, you're being recruited to fill a specific job at a specific unit. Unless things have changed, you'll go to A School within a year of boot camp graduation.

    Thank you. That’s the same whether or not you do the 8 week or DEPOT?

    Yes. If you're a Reservist, you'll know your A School date prior to shipping

    One more question. If there’s a delay between DEPOT and A school, what do I do in the interim. Report for drills ?
