Scott A. Martin - Second Lieutenant
Major: Management engineering
What's Next: Six months of training at The Basic School, Quantico, Va., to be followed by 3.5 years of mandatory duty.
Salary: $40,000/year, plus meals, housing and clothing.
My WPI: "Everything I did at WPI involved working in groups. This taught me management skills; I saw how groups of people think and I learned how to motivate them. I learned not to be afraid of confronting someone who wasn't pulling his or her weight. As a U.S. Marine, I'll be in charge of a lot of people and millions of dollars' worth of equipment--that's a lot of responsibility. I'm ready for it."
The Real Scott: "At WPI I lived two lives: the gregarious student who helps out in the Admissions Office and the leader who isn't afraid to raise his voice--a lot."
Five Years Out: "Hopefully, owning my own business. I've always envisioned owning my own pub."
