We vistited DS this last weekend. While talking about AROTC he mentioned a cadet in his class that is applying for WP. During the conversation he said the impression he was given was that WP ( SA grads) are more respected by other officers and enlisted. I told him I was not sure that was the case. I recall a presentation made by a recruiting officer while touring WP, he said the army gets about 70% of its officers from ROTC. It was his opnion that while the SA's may be more acadimecially challanging than most schools, ROTC does a better job of teaching time management and allows the cadets to develop independant thinking skills. While I agree that attending an SA may seem more prestieges, I would question that the SA's put out a better product. I would value others opinions on this.
