I'm currently a freshman at a small university in Missouri (class of 2017), and I'm looking to transfer to a SMC next fall. I intend to commission into the Navy. Specifically, I'd like to know what transfer student life is like at the various SMCs. I've heard that transfers at VMI stay with the class they went through the ratline with (eg I would be c/o 2018, but would graduate a year early). Are they all like that? Or would I be "bumped up" after I complete my first year? Any advice on transferring would be much appreciated!
