Can anyone state here, factually and without personal bias, the percent of cadets who graduate from the SMC's with commission? Along those same lines, what percentage of the cadets from the SMC's do not pursue the military as a career? I have just read three official documents that cite an 80%+ commissoning rate for VirginiaTech Corps of Cadets. These recent studies indicated a commissioning rate at VMI, TAMU etc. as betweem 35% and 50%. Is there anyone who would like to explain this? I am very interested in the disparity.
