Last year, I applied for OCS and I did not get selected so this year I decided to apply for both OCS and ROTC but looks like I got selected for both. Now I am not sure which one to choose. If I choose ROTC, I get to complete my masters with less interruption but I can got commissioned a lot quicker with OCS. Please, let me know what you would do in that situation. I am so confused.

That's a very personal decision only you can answer.

What's more important for you?

Earning a Master's or Comissioning immediately?

The other thing I would look at is the fact in OCS you are locked down and it's very structured and like a "gentleman's" basic training from what I hear.

It's really up to what you prefer.

IF things stay the same for the next 5yrs as they are now, you could go OCS, commission, go do your master's later on. You incur a "duty service obligation" if you go to college on the Army's dime later.

Be Proud of what you do- and do it Well! ~me
