Hello!
I’m a sophomore about to be a junior this upcoming fall.
I just joined up ROTC about two weeks ago in order to do the Two year route.
I was just offered a sport for Basic Camp this summer.
My question is if it is possible to attend basic camp and still not get contracted?
Considered I keep my grades up and stay out of trouble could I be sent to basic camp and still not a get a chance to commission?

Selection rates for which branch? If you must know the dirty truth here it is.... the people who majored in art and English will always have better chances in getting what they want because of their easily attained GPA, even though their major is useless and they chose the easy route. The smart kids who did rotc will be screwed even though they majored in STEM. Welcome to the sense of government ran organizations

If you keep your grades up, show up, and do your best, you will earn a commission if you are fully qualified for one.

Things have probably changed in the last 20 years but everyone who qualified and wanted a 2 year scholarship got one when I went through ROTC.

Their goal is to keep you in the program so you can complete it. The scholarship is a good tool to do that.

the Basic Camp will give you essentially a crash course in the Army. You should be able to contact at the start of your MSIII (Junior) year.

Your junior year has the biggest influence on your future. Failing LDAC at the end of your Junior year has potentially serious consequences- you will have to repeat your junior year of military science as well attend LDAC again at he end of your senior year. If you pass, you will be an end of camp commission.
