    USMC PLC Juniors after Junior year?

    Hello all, I was just selected for PLC juniors this summer, active duty ground contract (295 PFT, 3.6 GPA). I recently changed my major and was down exactly 1 credit hour from a “junior status” according to the Marine Corps at the time of my application, making PLC-C not an option. After this...

    PLC but I won't meet the age requirements?

    Hello everyone! I am currently a junior in high school and I have been planning my way to becoming a pilot for the USMC. Part of my plan involves going to PLC during college to get a guaranteed flight contract. I want to do PLC in my freshman and sophomore year rather than the 10 weeks for...

    I am a HS senior and I want to fly in the military. To keep things simple I know that the Marine Corps has PLC and you can get a guaranteed aviation contract. I also know it is possible to get selected as a pilot with AFROTC. Is it possible to be in both at the same time and choose one before I...

    Question about PLC

    I know that this is unlikely, but is it possible for a person to already be enlisted in the military, and go through PLC? Let's say someone is working on their degree stateside and is able to take enough leave to enroll in the 6 week training routines in the summer. Is this allowed...

    I would like to be a pilot in the military. I will be starting at a university in a few months and I am trying to weigh my options. I am quite interested in AFROTC, but, I don't like the uncertainty of getting a pilot slot. A few weeks ago I found out about the Guaranteed pilot slot through USMC...

    USNA Marines

    Less Broad Questions: Are there any extracurriculars that would help for USNA training/NROTC/PLC/OCS? Or Marine Corps enlistment? If I don't get into USNA, should I enlist, do college part time with reserve duty, or go NROTC/PLC/OCS? Does Duke or NC State have good NROTC programs? If not...

    NROTC at UCSD or Platoon Leaders Class at Cal Poly SLO

    I have been offered admission to both schools as a political science major. I did not receive the NROTC scholarship but my friend who is in the San Diego unit said that I could most definitely get the college program scholarship within the first year of doing it. Therefore, both schools would be...

    NROTC- Marine Option PFT Score

    I have been told by my recruiter that anything below a 275 is pretty much uncompetitive and a 290 is still incredibly worse than the perfect 300. I used to be higher, but as of right now, I am at a 200-215. Is this too low? Also, is this PFT too low for PLC too?

    Marine PLC without enlisting?

    I am applying to the NROTC Marine Option Scholarship, but I do not know if I am all that competitive. My recruiter was always talking about enlisting and then going to PLC during college. I am all for that option, except I do not want to miss school. I would be missing my first semester at...

    ROTC no longer an option... PLC?

    Hello all, I have had the craziest year so far from being awarded a scholarship to NROTC, to losing it to a medial DQ that was not waived, but then finding out that the AMI I submitted was not processed 6 months later... But long story short I'm now looking into the PLC program since losing my...

    NROTC Marine Option Rejection

    I just received my rejection letter from the NROTC Marine Option 4 year scholarship board and I have a few questions: 1. Does this mean I will be deferred to the later board in February? The letter said I was not selected for the 4 year scholarship but it did not include anything about me being...

    What would be my Date of Initial Entry into Military Service if I joined Marine PLC my freshman year of college. I'm asking because I'm trying to find a way that I can join the Marines and have the option of either the new retirement plan or the old one down the road.
