I want to be a Marine Officer, and I plan on doing it in a rather unique way if I do not get accepted to the Naval Academy or NROTC Scholarship. I am going to enlist in the National Guard, and use state tuition assistance to pay for college while doing College Program NROTC for the first two years and applying to PLC, then taking the commission when I graduate and the National Guard obligation ends. I was considering USMCR but the college benefits would come nowhere near what the National Guard can get and what college costs. I talked to the National Guard and they said I could do the non-scholarship NROTC while enlisted and also the PLC course since it has no obligation. What do you guys think about this plan?
