What do you all think about a commission only Mortgage Loan Officer position in Virginia?

I have been offered a position with a company as a Mortgage Loan Officer. The training is not paid - the commission is 25 percent and there is Marketing dept in house that provided leads and completed the applications for the Loan Officers. How do you feel about the commission rate? If the Marketing dept is taking all the info. from the client - what is left to do besides close the loan? I dont have hands on experience but I do have a college education. I know how I feel about the position . I would like feedback from others that have been or that currently are in the position of Loan Officer. Please share experience with commission only positions as well. Thanks!
