Enlisting vs. ROTC for law enforcement career
Hi guys, currently I am debating between the two in my post title. My ROTC application is done, and I am expected to be on the board at the end of this month, where they will decide if I get a 4 yr scholarship. I am currently a HS senior. Many have told me it would be wayy stupid to turn down a free 4 year ride, and that an education is always a plus.
I know I could enlist, I would try to get a 4 year 68W, I could do that stay in if I like, or leave and attempt to get on a department. Versus, doing ROTC getting a college degree in something, being an officer for 4 years and then possibly pursuing the same career path, at which point I would most likely be around 26 which to someone young like me seems almost to late to start a LE career.
I would be serving even if I didn't want to do LE, this is just the path I want to take after wards.
