Please help any advice needed! Im a D1 athlete at the University of California, Berkeley. But after my freshman year I have decided I want to join the military. But I also have had a very positive experience at Cal. I love the water and to travel so I was instantly drawn to the Navy but am also considering Army. I would be extremely happy with either. Cal has an ROTC program that I'm planning on enrolling in but my question is: should I apply to the academies and "transfer" using athletics to help get in and have 6 years of college total or stay at Cal for 3 more years and join ROTC? Which option is the better one? Would I graduate with the same rankings? Is Cal's ROTC program good? Here is a little about me: Im a huge crossfitter on the side of playing a D1 sport so the Candidate Physical Assessment would go very very well(Im 5 11 female and can do 5 strict pull ups and have a 6:55 mile). My grades are okay I had a 3.2 unweighted in high school and 3.0 at Cal taking hard classes. I got a 27 on my ACT my sophomore year and am planning on retaking it. I have multiple leadership roles on my resume and reputable internships such as working at Harvard University. Do my chances seem high? Thank you!!
