If you want some info about becoming a Ranger, PM me man. I'll tell you everything i know (which will be less than most people on this forum, but it will be coming from someone remotly more in your shoes.)
If you have questions about becoming a Ranger or the Ranger Regt. I'll be happy to answer them. Just make sure they are well thought out questions, and the answers haven't already been covered on this board. And be careful not to put out any misinformation out there, kids are signing away three, four, and sometimes six years of their lives away. They need the best and most correct information out there.

About going active right after AIT you have to get a conditional release from your state 6 months after being MOSQed, and depending on manpower situations they do not have to let you go.
Know of a lot of lads that got screwed on this, because their recruiters didn't give them this little bit of info.

Hey glad to see you want to go to the 75th; I will say this though: If you are not 100% dedicated to this, you WILL fail. I don't want to sound like an insensitive prick, but that's just how it is. Ranger school is very tough, I don't know anyone who hasn't recycled ever while going through the phases. You have to put all you have into it, or you won't make it.

Okay, after looking at the thread topic and seeing Ckim's post, perhaps I should explain what I've explained countless other times on this board.

There is no reason for anyone that is about to enlist under an 11X Option 40 contract to worry about Ranger school. The focus (45m target) needs to be BCT. Then BAC. THEN RIP. And after RIP, you better focus on staying IN the Regiment.

Rangers will NOT go to Ranger school until around a year in Regt. There is no reason to worry about the requirments or preparing for Ranger school until you are IN the Regt. Remember, Ranger school does not make you a Ranger .. only serving in the 75th Regt. will.

BCT = Basic Combat training ( The first training you will ever attend)
AIT = Advanced indivisual training (Job training)
BAC = Um... can't remember what it stands for... Basic Airborne Combat? Anyway, it's airborne training.
RIP = Ranger Indoctrination Program (Ranger training)

Its the training for your specific job. Like if your MOS was a tank mechanic, you would go to tank mechanic school. IF your MOS is a medic, you go to medic school.

AIT follows Basic Training, and is where you receive your MOS training, as FutureRANGER said. It varies in length (certain language schools can last up to three years, I've heard), and upon completion you will join your unit. Only enlisted go through AIT, the officer equivalent is OBC (AOBC for instance is at Ft. Knox, KY and is the Armor Officer Basic Course).
