My main goal is to be a commissioned officer in either the Air Force or Navy. Assuming that everything else is equal (e.g., I would be equally happy in the Air Force or Navy considering career options, life style, and culture), which of the two routes (NROTC or AFROTC) are most likely to lead to a commission? I have been awarded ROTC scholarships for both AF and Navy. My observation (right or wrong) on this board is that AF is in a significant downsizing mode and that even a scholarship cadet must get accepted to Field Training which can itself be challenging. From the Navy perspective, my understanding is that scholarship cadets, if they maintain minimum GPAs, will not have to face an equivalent Field Training hurdle (is this correct?). Obviously Navy can still downsize, but I’ve not seen nearly as much on these forums regarding Navy downsizing as AF. In addition, Navy ROTC cadets have the opportunity of summer cruises and according to my local AFROTC Detachment, similar programs do not exist for AFROTC cadets. So, what is the most likely route for commissioning, AFROTC or NROTC?
