My current college does not have any form of ROTC but I plan on joining after I graduate through OCS or ODS with the Navy as my first choice. I am applying to an academy for next year but if that doesn't work out what are my options. Can I still be a commissioned officer with out ROTC? I can't really transfer schools because I am an athlete where my school is being paid for. How does OCS/OCD work. I plan on being a physician or a normal officer. I haven't decided if Med school is for me or not.
