I'm a junior in high school and i'm considering joining the air force rotc program. I want to major in business/finance and maybe even have a aerospace engineering/computer engineering background. I've always dreamed of going to NYU and interning with Goldman Sachs group and being a wall street player but joining the air force rotc program seems to be a lot more honorable, gives you excellent leadership qualities, and plus the engineering background would set me apart from my peers maybe trying to get a corporate job for a tech company or such. Otherwise i'm asking, do you have a better chance to make it in the finance world taking all that debt to go to lets say NYU get your MBA and go from there, or the air force ROTC route in which you not only serve your country but you get an education also. My only worry with the ROTC route is will there be "good" opportunities afterwords? Like a ROTC from Boston University or UNC is the education of equal quality as a regular student. And the ROTC business graduate programs...Will they open "good" opportunities or is it like a community college education even though you're attending a good school like BU or UNC. Academically I'm doing "ok". I have a unweighted GPA of 3.54 but that includes my freshmen year when my average grade was a 93.5 now the last two years my averga grade is in the mid 80's but i'v taken all Honors courses and 4 AP courses and I haven't took my SAT's yet.
