    Is this possible? I'm not going to seeing as there are only two schools (McGill and Concordia) I am interested, but I did not apply to them, because, well... I did't apply to them.

    But anyway, is it possible to do an ROTC program for the US military in a Canadian school?

    I know its probably a dumb question, but I was just curious

    Ahh good question. I would assume you could go cross town ( or perhaps in your case...cross country) to another college that offers your branch of ROTC. I dont know why Canada would want a commissioning source for another country in their schools. I would call the colleges and ask them. I'm pretty sure even if there is none you could arrange something with a college back in the states.

    Yeah, thats what I figured it would be. Only problem is, Montreal is about an hour and a half away from the NY border, so IDK if that would be possible.

    none of those colleges are participants in the US Army ROTC program, so you aren't going to do Army ROTC....I'm willing to bet it's the same with the other branches. I'm not going to say this is a dumb question, but I would probably categorize it as a question from someone who is not very familiar with what we are about. If you like being close to Canada, I would tell you to look at St Lawrence or Clarkson...Do you play hockey:)

    I knew none of them offered it (that goes without saying) I just meant can you do like a cross town (or cross country) agreement with them.

    Tbh, it actually doesn't matter, seeing as I didn't apply to any canadian colleges. The only reason I even looked at McGill and Condordia is because the campuses are like 5 minutes walking from where the Canadiens arena is. Haha
