I plan on going for the Marine Option at the Acacdemy. I read in a book called "Brief Point", not Reef Points, that the academy will graduate no more than 20% of a class as Marines. Does anyone know whether this is true or not? If so, what happens if 50% of a class wants the Marine option? How does the academy decide who gets to go to the Marine Corps and who goes to the navy? Before reading that statistic, I was under the impression that there was no restriction on the number of Marines graduated, but that most midshipmen, perhaps 80% choose Navy and the rest choose Marine Corps. This also surprised me because my BGO told me at my interview that the number of midshipmen taking the Marine option is going up which leads me to believe that if there was a restriction, then there would not be a noticeable increase or decrease in those taking the Marine option. Please let me know what the deal is. Thanks in advance.
