Ok this is another question that is probably stupid, is it the same in the coast guard where if one goes to college and gets a degree they can enter as an officer? I’m not exactly sure how it works, but my basic knowledge about the subject is that if you go to college you can be an officer. Does it matter what degree you get? [/quote]
To be an officer in any branch of the military, you must have a bachellor’s degree. It doesn’t matter what in. You’re degree won’t have crap to do with where they put you. You can also apply to get into any of the military acadamies (West point, Naval Acadamy, Air Force Acadamy, or Coast Guard acadamy) and get your degree on their dime.
The degree isn’t the only prerequisite, however. You must pass all the screening and background checks. Just go talk to a recruiter.
