With over a thousand undergraduate students admitted to MIT every year, only a small percentage choose to begin to pursue a career in the military while still in college. While the ROTC programs at MIT have been in existence for decades, the number of students enrolled in each program –Navy, Army, and Air Force – is significantly smaller than it was years ago, despite the fact that the battalions at MIT also include students from neighboring colleges.
