I saw this asked in another thread but no one answered so Ill try again. I am curious how long on average it would take to promote in the reserves.
Specifically what I am interested in is eventually becoming an officer in the reserves, but my understanding is that currently that aren't many positions available, so if I wanted to enter now, which I do, I would have to go enlisted.
Additionally my understanding is that with a college degree I would go in as an E-3, and if I could qualify for DEPOT I would begin as an E-4. Then to qualify for the ROCI program I have to make it to E-5. Time is a little bit of an issue for me becuase of age, I would need to make all that happen within 5 years
So, about how long does it normally take to move from E-3 to E-4 and then again about how long does it take to move from E-4 to E-5 in the reserves?
