I'm a soon to be enlisted soldier in the Army. I will be going 11x airborne ranger, and I am heading out to basic training October 29th. I am currently 18 years old and tried to get into USMA last year but was not accepted. If I do decided to attend USMA in a few years would I have to redo ranger and airborne school? I have also been looking into American Military University to get in the future my bachelors in military history for Officer Candidate School. I could then be active duty while I pursued my degree to become an officer. Would OCS be the better option for me? Thank you.
