    August 14th 2010

    I went to The Citadel yesterday. I was accepted there and I decided to attend. But one night decided to enlist and go to BUD/s. I got a little sad knowing that I wouldnt be going here in 2 weeks but it is what it is.

    STA-21 The Citadel

    Since STA-21 means I would be a full time student, could I go to The Citadel and be a part of the Corps of Cadets and do the whole 4 years like a normal high school graduate would and then go back to the fleet as an officer?

    Too good to be true?

    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...

    picking classes

    SF49ers thanks for that reply. Yeah, after knob year im guessing everybody is friends except with the knobs so that should be fine. When you apply for rank, is there a sheet you fill out where you put every thing youve done in the corps of cadets and then a board reviews it?

    Its even worse to ask a question then when you get an unexpected answer, tell everyone some bonehead at your school asked it and not you. Dont be shy to ask questions about the USNA process. Asking if it was easier to get in if you want to be a Marine was a legit question, just not the...
