the word corps in this phrase is pronounced more closely to the word "core". the corps is a military oriented student program at A&M that will straighten you up. You will go through PT, cut your hair in a crew cut, you will have to yell out you name, major, and city when asked to "whip out." A hella freaking crazy choice to go into while going to college. Mostly all white students who discipline each other and go through some rigorous training.
Person 1: Bro, Johny is going to A&M and he joined the corps!

Person 2: Holy sh@#! He is going to go through some serious stuff.
