I am currently a senior in highschool deciding what to do, as i am 100% certain i want to go to the military. I believe both branches are the best for me, but i want to go in as an officer. Ever since i was a kid i dreamed of joining the military in some way. I was bullied as a kid and in freshman, so i became more agressive and short tempered, even abusive at times (which im trying to find a balance without being weak-willed). I am very driven as long as it is something im interested in. I have a low gpa (2.0) due to personal problems, but i am in no way incapable of recieving As and Bs. The only two branches/MOS im interested in is being an intelligence officer or infantry officer. Anyways my first option is to go to miami dade college they offer rotc and i can move to Uni of miami, which is the most efficient option, especially since ill also be in the national guard and be able to pay for college. My second but somewhat costly option is to do NROTC after highschool, but i d have to move all the way to tallahassee for their community college and do nrotc through a cross-town agreement.(not sure if i should go reserve marines also to pay off college and rent) Third option is to simply enlist active duty marines, and after duty go to college and no nrotc. Which option seems best for me? Are these options realistic? Which branch seems much better in terms of pride and prestiege? Please dont tell me you cant take rotc while in junior/community college, you can as i have friends currently in it.
