I don't even think it's a requirement to go through ROTC if you're planning on going to Med School. Every Army doc that I ever knew was direct-commissioned.

Those going through ROTC are commissioned at the same time they receive their bachelors degree. I'm not sure what would happen if you planned on going to Med School as a Commissioned Officer at that time. What might be a possibility is that you would go to Med School while on active duty as a 2LT. I really don't know. I'm sorry.

I suggest that you contact the ROTC liaison at the college you'll attend & have it all clarified for you. That failing contact the Army Medical Department (AMEDD) & ask them. There might even be a program available for you.
