Ive heard of people with BA's going to basic, and then having their stuff changed to OCS once they get there... but you still need to meet all of the requirements. Officers do all kinds of stuff so it does depend on the job.
Well are you even qualified to be an offifier? US Citizen, not older than 30 (waivers for it have about a 1% success rate), good credit, next to no legal issues, and able to pass a physical training test, not colorblind, etc. The list is far more stringent than enlisted.

You should see a food allowance and most of it being taken back out for meal deduction since you will be eating at the DFAC (cafeteria)...if you are married, BAH (housing allowance) for your dependents, you also get free personal trainers, free counselors, free uniforms, free training, etc...
Lead by Example!!!

Talk to your Recruiter. Posting questions like the ones you have is what this message board is for, but there is a reason you are going in Enlisted into the Regular Army, and you should have discussed that with him prior to now. You made the decision to join enlisted. You will have the opportunity to go to OCS, but it may not be right after you graduate from BCT unless your contract is written for that.
If NCO's did their job, I wouldn't have mine.
