Default What is the best way to fly for an airline?

I am currently a sophomore in college, accounting major. I have thought about either joining AFROTC and commisioning with their accelerated program and hopefully getting a pilot slot. I have also thought about enlisting in the ANG while in college and paying for some hours on the sides while eventually applying for a pilot slot after I get my degree. But I have heard that there will be a rise in demand for airline pilots in 2012 that will favor the civilian trained pilots that aren't committed to a military career for 10 years. If I do go civilian I would have to take out a loan to pay for it and add to the $50,000 in loans i will have for my degree. After training Im guessing Ill be in debt $100,000-$120,000, is it worth it? Should I train through military(AFROTC or ANG) or go civilian with a local flight school and build the hours myself?

I think you should have do civilian with a local school. With this you can be a pilot and you can fly the flight and touch the sky.
