NJROTC will enable you to enter the military at an advanced paygrade Mod Edit: If you aren't 100% sure, do not answer.

1. Yes, boot camp is the same no matter if you're a reservist or an active duty Marine. Schools are the same as well.

2. It depends. For one thing, if you're not married, you'll have to get approval from your Chain of Command to allow you to live in Housing(either on base or off). So, no if you're staying in the Barracks, she can't, but you can try to get approval to live in Housing.

3. I'm not sure about this so you'll have to talk to a recruiter about it.

4. I changed mainly in the way I carry myself. I have a lot of pride in myself as a marine as do most of us(there are the 10%). I know my attitude changed and I learned that to appreciate more. It really depends on who you are and how you take Basic Training as a person

I think he was asking if he would be treated the same way in active duty as he was in bootcamp.

Oh, if that was the case the answer would be no. If I'm understanding correctly this time.
