Are you still on active duty with the USAF? If so, will you be getting out before you graduate and/or apply for the Army?

Thank you for replying and yes I am currently active duty. My plan is to try and commission through the AF and if it does not work then try submitting a package to go to Army OCS. I have a pretty clean record with a couple of decorations, nothing wrong with the AF just looking to commission, I just believe my chances would be better in the Army. Any feedback/advice you could provide would be much appreciated.

Sorry, to answer your question, I want to finish my degree or at least get to a year out from finishing and have my commander sign the form for release to go to OCS. I am currently re enlisting for 4 years this month
