Does anybody know the average % of AROTC cadets that go AD VS NG/Reserve upon graduation?
I don't know about an overall national percentage, but that was definitely one of the questions my DS asked of every ROTC recruiter he met. Actually, his question was even more specific: he wanted to know the % that went AD that actually wanted AD. Some cadets request that they be given reserves instead of AD. The answer he received to this question gave him an idea of the strength & success of the battalion. Keep in mind, though, that with all the downsizing that's going on, I have the feeling those percentages are going to come down.
From a november post:
Key Accessions Statistics
2,623 Active Duty - 64% got first branch choice/91% got one of their top 3 branch choices/536 were branch detailed from a donor branch with Military Intelligence providing more than 1/2 of those branch detailed
2,609 Reserve Forces Duty - 1,285 Cadets who wanted Active Duty got Reserve Forces Duty
175 Army Nurses
71 Education Delay
In the reserves we are already bracing for a flood of soldiers going from AD to reserves for both officer and enlisted. Future numbers will not be like 2014, 13, 12 etc.
