Also, I have heard that we could split each 45 day ADT into two (2-4 week) locations.
Is this correct? If so, it would allow me to rotate through more Army locations where I am applying to residency.
They don't have to be September and October. They can be any time early in your fourth year. If you need them to be August and September, then they can be scheduled that way.
There is a limit to how short you can make your ADTs. I think the shortest ADT you can have is 24 days (check the handbook to verify), so you cannot turn one ADT into two. You can do a full 4 weeks at one location, then have the remainder be school orders, even if you are not, in fact, at school, but on another rotation. If you do back-to-back ADTs, I recommend you do 15 days of school orders before the first one, then the rotation, followed by rotation number 2, and 15 more days of school orders. Net result, you are active duty for 90 straight days, and get two rotations fully funded, with an additional 4 weeks of active duty pay while at school.
Do ADTs at your two top places, then do NADTs for any further rotations that you may want (not always necessary).
