    Hello all,
    I have had the craziest year so far from being awarded a scholarship to NROTC, to losing it to a medial DQ that was not waived, but then finding out that the AMI I submitted was not processed 6 months later... But long story short I'm now looking into the PLC program since losing my scholarship, and I was curious as to whether or not the PLC program is a guaranteed commissioning route upon completing PLC Jr's and Sr's as long as you succeed physically, mentally, and morally in each session.

    I have heard that technically the USMC does not have to grant you commission, however I have also heard that for the most part they do.

    Can anyone give some insight into this?

    PS - I realize this should be in the PLC/OCC thread, however I thought that more people would be surfing this thread than that one. Thanks.

    Explore all possibilities, but as was stated, you'll have to deal with the medical DQ. You'll have to get a waiver again. BUMED is BUMED regardless of commissioning path. As with anything, if you're going to pursue it, be persistent and explore all options.

    Good luck.
