Hello! I'm a 4/c Marine Transportation Cadet at Massachusetts Maritime Academy and I want nothing more than to get into a Navy commissioning program, whether it be NROTC, SSOP, OCS, SEA21 etc. I'm proud of my school and it's history but I'm starting to realize that it might not be the best place to be for those hoping to enter the armed forces as commissioned Officers. The Regiment along with my demanding major and poor academic work ethic have taken a huge toll on my grades, I'm currently pulling a 2.28 GPA and have been rejected by my school's Strategic Sealift Officer Officer Program as well as the Merchant Marine Academy (twice). I believe that in order to not miss my chance to become an active duty Navy Officer, I need to change something fast. I'm working hard to pull up my grades but the damage is already done. So I don't know where I should go from here... If I were to enlist active duty or reserve (and go to college as a reservist), maybe that would help me get into NROTC or another commissioning program? Or should I transfer to whatever NROTC school I can get into? Maybe take a year off to go to community college and just establish a good GPA for myself? If I do transfer to a normal school and try for NROTC, would I need to have a tough major, or could I study what I'm interested in? Does anyone have any advice? Thanks so much.
