How much freedom do soldiers have during AIT?
I understand that in Phase V soldiers receive a lot more freedom (like passes to go out, have personal belongings, etc.) but what about in Phase IV? I know in BCT they take away all your belongings, but will you have access to a cell phone and what not (or even a pay phone) to call back home? Is the first 3 weeks of AIT training tough? What is a typical day schedule like? What about weekends?

Also, this is a bit off topic, but is sexual assaults against women during AIT common (like more so than in BCT)? Just really paranoid here @_@

When I was Phase V they let us have overnight passes and we used to go to Tuscon, AZ and get hammered with the college kids. So yeah, it's definitely more than laid back then Basic.

There were no sexual assaults while I was AIT. I'm sure it has happened though. Sexual assault in the Army is 9 times out of 10 linked to alcohol abuse. If you keep your wits about you and don't drink to the point of sloppiness and loss of self control, you will be fine.

You can use a pay phone at any point that you have free time/can find a phone. I think you can have a cell phone/laptop after the first 14 days of school (or at least, I know a laptop is pretty much required at tech school for some jobs). Of course, the next question is how the hell do you get your cell phone and laptop two weeks into school as they no longer give you shipping allowances until your first duty station?

During tech school the rules are still really strict for fraternization, you have to announce yourself if you go to a female/male floor and keep the door open if you're in a room. You also have to lock the doors when you go to sleep, etc. so I wouldn't think sexual assault is too common as its pretty obvious if there's a girl/guy on your floor who shouldn't be there.

How AIT goes really depends on your MOS. Some give you freedoms very early and are very lax while others consume you. Infantry MOS's give you less freedoms than most others. Generally you get up early do PT get cleaned up and make your bed. Then have breakfast and go to school till lunch. Go to lunch then back to school till almost super time. Then you usually have time to shine your boots, iron your uniforms and visit or relax. Fire watch is about the only duty you have to pull. They are mostly civilian cook for AIT so no KP. Weekends are usually off time where you can go to the PX or bowling and you can always have food delivered. I have never seen sexual assult happen in AIT. I am sure it can happen but I have never seen it or heard about it.
