Hi guys, Firstly I will tell you a bit about myself, I'm 17 years old and have just started at college. I'm also in the middle of my application for the army, I am applying for EWSO in the Royal Signals. The reason for me starting at college was as a back up for me in case my application wasn't successful. But since I started at college it got me really thinking again about whether I should finish college and uni and then apply as an officer or carry on my application and join as a soldier. I have no doubt that I want to be in the army whatsoever, I am just not sure which route to take. I am really worried about what I should do as it is such a big decision for me. I would love to hear your opinions! I also have a couple of other questions I would like to ask: 1. Would my application for the army now hamper my application as an officer after I finish uni? 2. I know a lot of people are applying now for the army because of the current economic climate, and I am guessing it is the same for officer entry. So is there much chance of me getting a degree and then not being able to join down the line? Hopefully by the time I would have finished uni applications will be a lot lower again. I am aware that the best place to be asking these questions would be at my ACIO but I am worried that if I asked these questions it might somehow jeopardise my application. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
