I read in another post about commissioning rates versus graduating rates for the NROTC participants. It is alarming that they are around 40ish percent. How can you complete the NROTC program and NOT be commissioned? OR are they dropping out of the NROTC program and just finishing their degree? A video my DS watched described how they attend Officer Candidate School the summer of their junior year - Is it possible to NOT pass this school? I ask because DS wants to be a commissioned officer upon graduation. It is VERY important to him - NROTC is not just a way to pay for college.
