If possible, I'd prefer to move before the end of training so I'm not commuting nearly across the US just to sit reserve. Thanks!
That's a tough one. There are two weeks where you're at home studying systems on the iPad, but I can't in good conscience recommend taking 2-3 full days away from studying to move. The expectation is you working 4+ hours a day on Ethos, and participating in the group chats/questions posed by the instructors.

You will likely have some break between systems and EFPTs, unless you're in the first group to go. And again between your LOE and IOE, at least enough to move.

That would be my advice. Wait until you get your schedule, and plan to move before you start IOE. You'll likely have at least a few days. You could also probably work with our training logistics to create a gap.
