I recently accepted a posting as an Infantrymen, and while I am very excited to be going and serving my country, I, however, had originally applied to become an officer. I do have a (4 year) degree, but was told I lacked the proven leadership skills and was told if they were to move me on I likely would not pass the next boards. This lead me to beleive that it was as much a personal decision on the career councillor's behalf as it was cf policy, which leaves me a little dismayed as I was not given the chance to even prove myself. I am happy with my decision to join as an NCM, but am wondering if I can put my education to better use and have a chance later on to become an officer, if I so desire. Appreciate any input.
