I am currently a college student at a community college and just finished my freshman year. I’ve been accepted to Rutgers University with a 3.2 GPA in college and am a criminal Justice major. My Pt is good and can almost max out both by myself. Wondering if it’s better for me to go AFROTC and compete for an EA spot. I would want to eventually become a security forces officer if I went this route. If I join the AROTC then I want to know my chances of getting active duty. Would want infantry, artillary, armor, or mp.. both ROTC programs would be for a 3 year for myself. Which should I choose so I can become a future officer. Thank you

Only you can make that choice. We are not you. I had the similar decision to make from HS. AFROTC vs AROTC scholarship. My goals drove me to Army. I think you would have more options as an MP officer than a Security Forces officer just due to reletaive size of the force. But I am biased and not you. It's up to you.
Honestly? I would choose Air Force. Quality of life may be better as well as benefits and pay-those you will need to research though. I love being in the Army and have utilized my benefits but may have gone with the Air Force given different circumstances when I enlisted. Look at all of your options though before making your final decision.
