I'm currently a freshman in college. I applied to West Point during my senior year and was QNS. I received an AROTC scholarship to a top ranked private university and am having success in the ROTC program. I didn't apply to WP again this year, but as the news of the ROTC branch selection and active duty slots diminishing is coming out, I am considering applying to WP again next year. I know I want to be an active duty officer and I am afraid that no matter what success I have in ROTC I will end up with a reserve officer position during my senior year because of the downsizing of the Army. Is it worth it to go through 6 years of college and apply to WP my sophomore year to guarantee my active duty status? Or should I just keep going with AROTC? Thank you.
