Hello everyone, I'll give a little introduction about myself and my current situation along with questions. I will also break the sentences up for everyone to read. Currently, I attend a community college in CT pursing an AA degree in Nuclear Engineering Technology. I have a 3.54 GPA as of right now. I've also been working at the nuclear power plant around here as an Engineering intern and a nuclear technical specialist. I have applied to Ohio State University and Texas Tech to purse a BS degree in Chemical Engineering. (most likely) I have been in contact with the NROTC recruiting officers at both universities for AROTC and NROTC. The AROTC told me (From both universities) that I would be guaranteed a commissioning position if I transferred as a 4 year student. The NROTC told me that I would have to transfer as a 4 year student to be practically considered for the Advanced Standing. If I recall, the officer stated that "3-4 freshman/sophomores were accepted into the Advanced Standing." Now here comes my dilemma. I want to serve in the armed forces regardless. Preferably I would like to pursue the NROTC route. If I decide to go this way and was denied Advanced Standing, would it be possible to switch over to the AROTC? The Army officer said it would be possible to "transfer and do the program as a junior but really tough" but I didn't ask about switching ROTC programs because I didn't want to ruin any chances of either program. My ultimate plan if everything fails where I couldn't get into the NROTC Advanced Standing, switch to the AROTC, or originally start from ARTOC, I would enlist in the Navy as a Nuke and go that route. I started this path with a recruiter and scored a 94 on my practice test but I was encouraged to go the officer route. Sorry for the long post, with all those breaks as well. Any information about anything is greatly appreciated.
