no; all mandatory ROTC would do is lead to more corruption as students who could afford to would buy their way out of ROTC.
and also lead to increased drop out rate as other students could not afford the expenses associated with ROTC.
longer term it would cause more middle class families to emigrate, as attending college would now come with the risk of inducted into the military, a very real risk given the GMA administrations pro-war policies.
and if she gets away with this her next move might be general conscription, as she mentioned "a citizen army" in one of her speeches
