Hello, I'm currently an enlisted first term Marine and I'm trying to plan out my future at the moment... My dream is to become a Navy officer after my service as an enlisted Marine is done (I know it's kind of odd but that's just how it is lol). To do so, I'm thinking of using the GI Bill to finish college at any fine university with an NROTC program in California, since I already have an Associate's Degree. I would want to finish my Bachelor's in History. So going to college for NROTC with 2 years left (or 3, since I would have to fit calculus and physics into my schedule, correct?) and an associate's degree and being prior service, (and I have a tattoo on my upper bicep/shoulder, well within regs and invisible under the PT shirt, is that disqualifying or waiverable? Is that waiver hard to get?), is this a realistic plan for getting into NROTC? I don't care about the scholarship, the GI bill has me covered, I just care about becoming a naval officer. On my side: I have pretty good test scores (31 ACT, 2060 SAT, 99 ASVAB). I could easily knock out the Navy PRT. Prior service experience. So how would i go about getting into NROTC and securing a slot to commission? Any ideas, feedback, or tips would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
