    Is it possible to go to graduate school right out of Kings Point?
    Would law school or med school still be possible for me even
    though I want to commission with the merchant marines
    or one of the armed services?

    There was at least one grad from 2011 going to grad school directly from KP - Harvard Business School. He heard it was easy after KP!!

    There is no such thing as a commission in the merchant marines. If you are talking about the newly renamed Strategic Sealift Officer community in the Navy Reserve, than yes you can pretty much do whatever you want professionally and it will not interfere. The only commitment is two weeks a year and keep up on your paperwork. If you go active duty in any of the armed forces you will be stuck doing grad school at night on your own time.

    Would that be the newly named SS Officers? I doubt that anyone with any knowledge of history will be thrilled to be called an SS Officer. Nice going Navy! Will their caps be black with a skull and crossbones emblem? Could you have thought for just a second BEFORE you came out with that new name? Just maybe a nanosecond of thought. Good grief. :frown:

    I bet you're going to be really upset when you see the videos of them goose-stepping around Captain Tomb Field on Acceptance Day ... sorry just kidding. :shake:

    Yes, you can go directly to grad school out of KP. There are some restrictions but it can be done. Law/medical school require a slight delay in order to go to one of those.
