I know with a college degree that it makes you eligble to be an officer in the military, but I was wondering if it is common for people to just enlist with a college degree. The reason I ask is because I'm currently in college and am really thinking about going to the military for a while after graduation. The university I attend has army ROTC, but I want to join the Air Force. I don't want to transfer because I like my school and so I was going to apply to OTS in my senior year. I know it is a hard thing to get into so I figured I could just enlist if I don't get in.
