I am interested if anyone would know what percentage of 2011/2012 NROTC midshipmen received their first or second choice Occupational Specialty Assignments. It was my understanding that top grades/PT scores from a top school would give you the best opportunity and first choice... but I have recently heard of someone with the above noted qualities being assigned to SWO Navy Nukes, which was their last choice. Is the need so great for Nuclear officers and the supply of technical/engineering majors so small that Tier 3 majors are being mandated to Nukes? My son wants EOD but is getting a strong impression that he too will be "drafted" into Nukes because of his strong academics and he does not know if he can do anything to about it. Thank you for your feed back/recommendations.
