    Do the officer candidates; the ones at The Citadel getting commisions through STA-21 and such, i realize they are not part of the corps of cadets, but just attend ROTC...i was wondering what is life like for them.. Do they live in the campus dorms and how is their participation with the corps? I would like to be part of the corps of cadets but am sad that as an enlisted trying to get a commision, I wont be allowed to. Do these people have a brotherhood with the corps or no?

    The active duty or veteran students are not part of the Corps of Cadets. For the STA program, since you would still be enlisted, you would be living on the economy and being paid at whatever rate the program pays.

    If you wanted to be a part of the Corps, you'd have to leave the Navy and apply just like any other student to the Corps would for admission.
