“The best management training program in America”

This is a communication to the student body on behalf of Captain (I deleted name), the Marine Corps Officer Selection Officer for New Jersey. If you are an American citizen, a full-time student, and medically & physically fit, then you may have the opportunity to lead the nation’s most elite fighting force.

Qualified applicants attend Officer Candidate School in Quantico, Virginia. OCS is one of the best leadership development courses in the country; its challenges will develop you mentally and physically. Freshmen and sophomores attend two separate six-week summer courses. Juniors, seniors and college graduates attend a single 10-week course.

Some of the key highlights of the programs are:


– Earn approximately $ 2,700.00 for each six weeks or $ 4,500.00 for the ten-week session.

GUARANTEED contracts available:

Yes, it’s legit.

By saying you have a choice, it means that you go through the training before you make a committment, and upon graduation you would become an officer in the Marine Corps.
