The whole galaxy in Mass Effect 3 Legendary Edition is on fire and you have little time to pause. If you decide to intervene with Cerberus’ attack on Grissom Academy to save the students, you have a chance to add some biotic power to your war effort and catch up with Jack if she survives Mass Effect 2. At the end of the Kahlee Sanders mission, the one who sent the signal for help asks if students who graduated from Grissom Academy should be placed in a supportive role, or if they should go to the front and be ready to fight.

Should Grissom Academy students go into the role of support or artillery?

Support role

Originally, Grissom Academy students were always told to go into supportive roles. But based on his fighting skills and survival of the attack, Cerbera Sanders believes he is better suited to the front lines. However, Shepard disagrees and believes that students would like this choice and should stay behind, protect soldiers and improve their shields. If Jack is alive, he agrees to this decision.

For this choice you get 50 war assets and Paragon points.

The role of artillery

Shepard agrees with Sanders’ decision to place Grissom Academy students in the role of artillery. Unlike choosing support, they will have their own unit and will see a lot of action against the Reapers. Jack disagrees with this decision, but does not fight you in the selection.

For this choice you get 75 war assets and Renegade points.


You will see the waves of this choice at the very end of Mass Effect 3. If you decide to place students in a supporting role during the epilogue and Jack is alive, you will see a short film story of Jack, who spent time with after the war. However, if you decide to place them in an artillery role and Jack is alive, you can see that after the war, they are mourning their graves.
