Hi all, I'm a candidate for the class of 2015. If I receive an appointment, I plan on going USMC. My goal is to become an EOD Officer in the Marine Corps. My question is do the people who pick USMC as their service selection actually pick what they want to do as a Marine Officer as well (infantry, aviation, etc.)? Or do they simply choose Marine Corps and get placed according the "needs of the USMC"? Everyone who goes Navy talks about what rating they want, but I never about USMC ratings being discussed. Also do they still have to go to OCS like the people from PLC, MECEP, and NROTC do or do they get direct commisioning?
