I have been reading faithfully, several times a day, for a while now, and thought I had this all straight. However, I just read something on the USMA forum that has me confused. I read that cadets at the SMC's are guaranteed a commission (provided they meet the qualifications, of course). I was thinking that there was no guarantee, that it depended upon performance in ROTC, and only a certain amount on the OML (depending on the needs of the military that year) would receive commissions. But, I'm thinking now, that it must be only ROTC at regular colleges that aren't guaranteed a commission? Can anyone clarify for me, or direct me to the information? My son wants to attend UNG, and I frankly, have been stressed about whether he was guaranteed a commission or not.
