I am a Marine, I have been out of active duty for 3 years or so. I have been contemplating joining the USCG since I got out, and now I am beginning to think I may regret not joining. I had A LOT of debt when I was going to try and start my enlistment process. Now I am getting out of debt plan on being debt free in about a year unless my wife gets a better job.
Anyway I am currently in school full time for Business Admin. and I am curious about how commissioning goes. Is it easier to enlist then apply for OCS or is it easier to just apply and go straight for OCS? I am not dead set on being an Officer or anything, just trying to figure out what my best option is to become an Officer and I just want to get all my facts straight before I sit down with my wife and talk to her about this.
Thanks for helping out!
