Hi everyone, I would love some advice! I am currently studying cyber security at a community college. I would ideally like to finish the associates and transfer to complete my BS in two years, starting fall 2020. I would love to do NROTC marine option - however, I would like to do advanced standing because I don’t want to go on scholarship. Is this possible for marines or just for navy? And Can I start my last 2 years, or would I have to have been in the program for all 4 years? I am willing to consider just transferring this fall and getting a three year degree, however, I still would want to do college option/advanced standing, because I want my AD to be 3 years, not 5. I would also consider plc, if NROTC is not an option. I know I can apply for that my junior year for sure. This option does not obligate you for anything unless you take financial assistance, right? But they will pay you for summer training info regardless, correct? How competitive is PLC? Is it like ocs/NROTC, or less competitive? Last question: is it possible to do plc or occ this upcoming summer as a sort of internship, one which doesn’t commit me to anything? Can one do these while in community college with the intent to transfer?
