Are Officers who commission via OCS given the same opportunities for choosing their career fields as those who commission from the academy?
For example, does one who comes through OCS have the same opportunity to be assigned to an afloat billet as one who comes through the academy? Or are they more likely to see a different spread of career field opportunities.
I approach this as an active Army Officer who went through Army OCS, where it is generally accepted that West Pointers and ROTC get first pick of career field branch numbers, and OCS candidates get their "leftovers".
Generally, what career field opportunities are available to OCS graduates, and what are the average percentages of billets available of each per class.
