Tarleton state vs ung

UNG is a Senior Military College, Tarleton is not. There are many advantages to attending and graduating from SMCs.
 
This is a good overview article from an unofficial source, though usually reliable. It covers the 6 SMCs, and draws comparisons to service academies and college ROTC programs.


You can also research the 4 junior military colleges.

Tarpeton is not one of those specifically designated.

I enjoyed reading about Tarleton - quite the history on its corps of cadets. It looks like it’s part of the Texas A&M university system.

If you are looking to commission via the ROTC programs there, and it seems like a good fit for you academically, culturally and monetarily, then you should get the same service ROTC syllabus and training used for programs at other universities. All commissioning programs - whether service academy, ROTC, SMC, OCS/OTS or others - produce outstanding, good, fair and poor officers. Once you get out into your service, the key is performance, performance, performance.

Edit: I just looked at your other recent posts, especially WRT VMI, The Citadel, etc. Help us out here. If you don’t think you can commission, what are you looking for? What is the goal? What need/want are you looking to fulfill?

A structured environment and a job in the federal service
 
Hard to say without knowing your specific goals. What major do you want to pursue? Is it offered at both UNG and Tarleton? Importantly, would both schools make sense financially? If you want to go into public service, are their programs at either of the schools that could help set you up for a career? UNG is an SMC so it lends itself to a structured environment. Although looking at the "Cadet Life" section on the Tarleton State website, they appear to have much of the same structure as well. In that case, you should decide which school is your best fit financially and academically.

If you are interested in federal service, Virginia Tech - another SMC - offers the Defense Civilian Training Corps through the DoD. The scholarship pays full tuition as well as a stipend and summer internships, and after graduation, you would serve a couple years in the DoD. Just something to consider.
