I'm currently a private soldier with my local TA Infantry unit due to attend Liverpool University this September. I've taken two years out in between Sixth Form and Uni, most of which were spent in green on various exercises and Telic 7. Most of the officers that I've spoken to in both my unit and the Regular units I've served with have urged me to go for OTC under the TASO route, especially my PSAO who used to be the RSM there. I'm looking to get commissioned once I've finished uni and am waiting out for an RCB date before September. Question is, will I be selling myself short if I go to the OTC? I've seen some of them at it before (never Liverpool) and they've ranged from decent to downright choppers, and although the thought of spending my weekends getting bladdered and working my way through the female cadets like a dose of salts are appealing it's not going to be worth it if the training is pants. The Kingo Coy in the city is due to merge with my parent unit 4 Lancs later this year so transfering there wouldn't cause too much of a **** around. Any words from those who have been with LUOTC?
