I have learned of two additional commissioning (or at least I believe are commissioning) options that I could possibly take advantage of in place of (or in addition to?) NROTC or USNA. One is called NUPOC, which I have heard glowing responses to. The other called STA (Seaman to Admiral)- which I have just discovered this evening. In what situations do these programs benefit an individual? How might one determine which program is the correct one to pursue?
