Hello, first of all I'd like to say that this is an amazing community and I come here very often to read about all things related to the Navy/Marine Corps. I have been wanting to be in the Military for a long time now, and I really do feel like this is the branch for me. First thing to point out is...academically, I haven't been exactly the best. As of matter of fact, I've been incredibly lazy my whole high school career due to a lack of motivation, yet whenever I took tests, i would do just well enough. As a current Senior in highschool, My highschool GPA is a 2.1, and my SAT scores are 1030 first time taking it (without studying). I am Planning on retaking it to get a higher score. Nevertheless my passion for being an officer is huge. The major I am going for when i go to college is whether in Business or in criminal law. My plans after high school is to enlist in the Navy (ASVAB score 52) and live out my life rather than go to college instantly. My question really is...what would be the best option in terms of going from enlisted to officer in the Navy? My first option is to instantly go to college so i can apply to Navy OCS, but once again, I don't know if college is something I'd do atm, and I'm not sure if my major would be good enough to get accepted (I want to get a Criminal Law/Business degree). Second option is to enlist in the Navy, get out after 4 years and go to college to get my major and then apply for OCS (since i would be much more competitive and have military experience.) Third option is enlist and afterwards go to NROTC...but financially, it's a burden. Anyone with experience or knowledge on enlisting first and afterwards becoming an officer is appreciated.
