Officer Candidate School
Marine Option Midshipmen are required to attend Officer Candidate School (OCS) during the summer before their Senior year. This 6-week course is where mind, body and character are screened, evaluated and honed to a razor-sharp point. Where leadership is measured not by how well you follow procedure, but how you lead in conditions of uncertainty. Where decisiveness, judgment, initiative and moral courage are tested in the midst of chaos, exhaustion, indecision and scrutiny.
