I was just wondering what are the advantages and disadvantaged of going to a jmc than a 4 year ROTC college? I also have a few additional questions about jmc life. 1.) Do you rank up faster if you go to a jmc? 2.) What do you do for fun at JMC? Do you have any time for fun activities or is it mostly work? 3.) Do you get a automatic edge over ROTC canidants. 4.) I'm in the process of trying to decide what's best for me and I'm going to be honest, while I think it would be a good idea to go to a jmc I really don't know if I would like it. I know I can handle getting up early and having to march, wear a uniform and do pt everyday. I never fully experienced though being in a strict military environment... I think it would vr fun though to do extra military and combat exercises than normal ROTC. 5.) Based on question 4 is going to a JMC a can't miss opportunity and going to a 4 year ROTC would disadvantage me or is it all the same in the end. 6.) I talked to my local ng recruiter and he said unless your going to west point or are going to do your 8 years and out eventually though the benefits of going to a JMC(at least in terms of pay and rank advancement would even out once you start getting to higher ranks.) Would you believe this to be true. 7.) And here's my last question have their been a lot of generals who went to a normal 4 year university or do most come through the special military colleges like west point vmi and such. Also is this true for the higher ranks for officers? Basically I'm doing these questions cause I'm trying to soul search some, while I think going to a jmc would be awesome I'm just scared that if I went there I could end up hating it and I would rather not go to a place I hate for 2 years unless the advantages of going to such a place heavily outweighs doing a 4 year rotc program at a university.
