Have been for about a month now, Ranger Jim. Got back from MEPS last week and have 68W for my contract, no Option 40 but hoping to either get it amended before my ship date or get recognition for consideration during Basic/AIT. Also talking to Ranger Battalion recruiters to get the ball rolling.
Have you taken your oath? Do you have a report date?

Have your recruiter call your MEPS counselors and they can check weekly to see if they can update your reservation with Option 40. Some counselors are lazy and won't do it or make excuses as to why they can't. I am not one of those counselors. Updating a reservation to option 40 takes less than 2 minutes. If your recruiter runs in to a wall let me know and I'll try and contact him.
