    Hi I am currently thinking of a backup plan opposed to a service academy. Which do each of these have to offer in addition to my major in pre-med?

    Can you re-phrase your question? It's not at all clear what you're trying to ask.

    I think good advice was given on the other thread, where it was also suggested he move the question to the ROTC area of the forums, which I assume is why he opened the duplicate here. I think this is the right place for his question (perhaps) and since I can't close the other thread I'll just leave this one open so he can continue with his questioning here. Hopefully we can get the other thread closed.

    Army ROTC offers you the opportunity to become an Army Officer, if you meet all the requirements and complete all the training and graduate.

    Yellow,

    I think this is where you should have started your search. Take away the 5 service academies and that leaves 17 colleges which charge no tuition and don't tell you when to get out of bed in the morning. I don't think any of those 17 involve a military commitment.

    Let us know how the organic chemistry works out.

    LMAO cb!

    My DS is a bio Chem major. He was really concerned about orgo, due to everything he heard from others, but he did really well and actually looked forward to Orgo II? :eek2:

    My niece that is a pharmacy major OTOH prayed for the semester to just END!

    Orgo is truly a make or break impo.

    Back in the day, there was a bumpersticker that said, Honk if you passed PChem.
    Also back in the day, there was no such thing as a pre-med major. Maybe the world has changed.

    PChem turned me into a Broadcast Journalism major back in the day.

    I think back in our day pre med were bio majors, just like pre law were philosophy or poli sci majors.
    Theyellowfellow please don't see this as an attack. Just old folks reliving their college days.

    Back on track.

    You need to research how difficult educational delay(ED) will be for each branch on top of their ROTC programs and life after commissioning. What if you choose door number 3 because of ROTC scholarship, but they don't award you ED, will you be happy serving in that branch for four years AD? For AF/NROTC there is only active duty option, no Guard or Reserve choice like AROTC.

    Come back when you can answer a simple question...why that branch? You can want to serve all 3 because each branch us unique, you just need to say why.

    Most MOCs require essays and many of them ask why the SA? If the MOCs interview candidates, that is when they typically ask why that branch?

    Just asking you why ROTC, and why you would want to be in that branch? What if no ED? You will be interviewed in the ROTC process.
