    Please tell me if this is seriously legit. Anyone with experience? I am attending The Citadel this fall and pretty much this says I'm guaranteed a Marine pilot slot if i want.


    "When you apply to the Platoon Leaders Class or Officer Candidate Course, you choose the area that you want to go into. "

    -Pilot - This is the only program of any service that will guarantee you a pilot slot as early as your freshman year in college if you qualify. If you make it through the summer training and take your commission as an Officer of Marines you are guaranteed to go to flight school in Pensacola, FL to become a Marine pilot.

    "If you qualify". That is pretty much the same for any MOS. If you are a good candidate for the job and you request it they will give it too you. I'm assuming that they would like to guarantee pilot slots early because of how much training it takes before you even come close to a cockpit.

    It is true. If you qualify then you are guaranteed a pilot slot. They qualify you before you contract, I believe. So, if you can't qualify then you can get out of your obligation.

    I'm pretty sure Marine PLC is the only way to enter the military with a guaranteed a pilot slot.
