Titanfall has two campaigns, one for each faction, the IMC Campaign and the Militia Campaign. Is there anyway to choose your faction before matchmaking? It it helps, I've completed both campaigns.

You obviously can't (at least I haven't found any selection mechanism so far).

Basically, the first playthrough you'll be matched into one of the teams randomly (or based on some unknown formula). The second playthrough you'll be matched with the other team you're still missing completion. From then on you're matched wherever there is some room.

It's far from being perfect, but given the nature of the campaign and how the "unlocks" work (order of unlocked titan hulls is the same, no matter which faction you've played first), I'd consider it sufficient.

Your second paragraph is incorrect; you can get assigned to any faction on your first playthrough. –  peper757 Mar 19 at 7:41
    
Are you sure? So the very first selection might be purely random, but you'll stick to that faction till you've completed the playthrough? Can't test it for obvious reasons. :) –  Mario Mar 19 at 7:41
    
I was assigned to IMC on my first playthrough but then I had to stick to it. Still it's kinda stupid that I can't choose my faction. Especially if I want to replay a mission for a specific side... –  Toby Mar 19 at 7:54
    
Okay, so seems to be random then. Editing the answer. –  Mario Mar 19 at 7:56
    
This will make getting the achievement for winning all the campaign missions very fiddly. –  DavidYell Mar 19 at 8:16
