Military Reserves + IB Timeline?

Prospect in Other

Currently a sophomore at a target thinking about enlisting in the Air National Guard after graduation while also pursuing a career in investment banking - anybody on this forum have any experience with the enlistment timeline or what it's like balancing the two? I'm mainly trying to figure out the logistics of whether it'd be possible to fit BMT + tech school into the summer / fall after graduation before starting as an analyst, or if it's a better idea to wait a few years until I'm more senior and established before enlisting.

You have about a month between graduation and starting training at your bank. BMT and job training will take at least four months.

If you're graduating college, don't enlist. Commission. I suggest reevaluating your path.

Additionally, if you're thinking about enlisting when you're more senior... lol. The last thing you want to do is spend the little free time you have getting talked down to as an associate making 250k+ a year by a twenty year old who works at Foot Locker as his normal job outside of the reserves.
