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.
