Apologies in advance if this has already been covered; my search didn't turn up anything. I'm twenty-two now and it has been my hope to enter in about a year on the conclusion of a masters degree I'm undertaking. However, I've recently received an offer from an investment bank in the city and I'm considering accepting. It would run for two, maybe three years, after which I'd hope to enter Sandhurst. I think it would be no harm for later career options and personal development to have a couple of years in the banking sector under my belt and it would only delay the original plan by two or three years. My worry is that entering at twenty-five or twenty-six might be a bit late. I know that it's within the rules, but is it wise to delay entry until that age? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I expect to be sponsored by the Int Corps, for what it's worth.
