    Where I was previously planning on being a rifleman in the Corps, now I am going down an extremely different road. After talking to a former Navy recruiter that my father is hiring as a store manager, it looks like I will be foregoing the Marines and actually going to college while participating in Navy ROTC. Apparantly I can go where I want, have it payed for, and be payed ~2k a month while in school.

    So now I have to decide what I want to do in the Navy. I would like to do something in Intelligence. My ASVAB score was a 92.

    Does Navy ROTC require that you join the Navy?

    Intelligence specialist sounds good.

    I was going off of what the recruiter said, so I guess it is competitive, but he didn't say that. What do I need to do to get it? My grades have been slipping lately, but I always pass and I get very high scores on the standardized tests.

    You can leave ROTC programs after one year with no strings attached, so yes, they will pay you for nothing, after that it gets more difficult I've heard.

    But yeah, NROTC is crazy competitive, good luck.

    not trying to be a dick here, but

    ASVAB is more for enlisted peeps, and ROTC is of course more of an officer thing. second you wont get jack as far as mony without a scholarship.....and just like the airforce the navy is downsizing

    No no... What I'm trying to get at is, does NROTC work like the Naval Academy where you can choose to become an Ensign in the Navy or a 2nd LT in the Marines once you graduate?

    Yes. I believe there is some additional training after graduation if you want to be a Marine officer, but the short answer is yes, NROTC->Marine Officer/Navy Officer.

    contact the schools ROTC program and find out about all the details. From my experience, A enlisted recruiter dosen't really know the full story and requirements for ROTC.

    :werd: there was some recruiter on here a while back insisting that the air force was critically short on officers and pilots (this is right after i read an article on voluntary separation and force shaping) and they were taking just about anyone who qualified... :nuts: talk to an ROTC recruiting officer (even if you arent only interested in ROTC) or an officer recruiter... in ROTC at least, there isn't as much incentive *cough, quota, cough* as an enlisted recruiter.... they are much more likely to give you the straight shit if they don't see you as filling their quota.
