I find it interesting you say that most don't go to Annapolis to become Marines. Our Commander, First Sargeant in USMC (ret.), joined the army. His brother went to West Point. At the end of his brother's graduation at West Point, the USMC came to the graduating class and say "We need volunteers for the USMC. All interested come over here.'' And they took 16% of the graduating class. If not enough people volunteered they chose random. So, I find it interesting you say that about the Navy.

And I believe, from what I've seen, the USMC has their own ROTC. It's called MCJROTC. There website is posted in the forum title "How to get JROTC in my school" or something to that effect.

They have their own JROTC, not ROTC, I believe they go to NROTC. Correct me if I am wrong.

MCJROTC: Marine Corps JROTC

MCJROTC: Marine Corps JROTC
http://www.boston.k12.ma.us/madisonpk/JROTC%20Web/

(The second is a better source, all .k12.<state>.us websites are official government websites.)


But apparently it can be listed as NROTC or MCJROTC.

Couldn't you just become a marine officer and then switch over to the marines later on?
