It is a great idea to have plans for when you get out. But the reality is, you don't know yet if the army will be the right place for you.
I can only speak from personal experience, that I had 9 years between my Sophomore and Junior years of college. It worked for me, but it might not work for everyone. Yes, my friends were light years ahead in careers, but I had experiences that they never can even imagine. Now,so many years later, I continue to do reerves, long past the age of mandatory reserves. It becomes very personal.
