My son has just started ROTC in college. Here is my question: Assuming he goes the entire 4 years of college and completes the ROTC program, will he AUTOMATICALLY get a commission? Or do they just pick and choose from the ones who completed the program? In other words, if he were to graduate at the bottom of his class, would he still get a commission? (Hopefully, that won't happen!) Will he automatically get his choice if he wants to be active duty instead of reserves? Kind of like the old joke: Q: What do they call the guy who graduates at the bottom of his class in medical school? A: Doctor. Is ROTC the same way? Thanks, in advance.
