From what I see in this image CBRN is the ONLY branch that you are guaranteed. This is because it has a zero percent BRADSO rate and someone that was 990 on the OML was able to branch it without BRADSO. I may be reading this incorrectly but that is what I see.
100% unless things change dramatically by the time you graduate. It is one of the recipient branches for Branch Detail - meaning they force people from other branches to serve their first tour in Chemical.How likely am I get the chemical branch if it's my first choice? Also, does my major affect my chances?
Major does not matter at all. But you may want to look more closely at what Chemical Branch does, just in case you think it might involve laboratories and test tubes. In reality it involves a lot of decontamination of personnel and equipment, while wearing protective equipment.
There are also a myriad of opportunities to balance being Chemical with operational to include chemical officers in each Ranger Battalion and Special Forces Battalion. A close friend of mine who was a Chemistry major branched Chemical and did 4 years in the 82nd Airborne and completed jumpmaster while there. He then got out and got a PhD in Chemistry and came back in the Army as a research scientist doing vital work on infectious diseases. I joke with him that he is the only Army scientist who can supervise a Mass Tactical jump if required
