Thanks for your advice on my previous thread everyone. I have two more questions if you people would be so kind and give your opinion? 1) I handed in my initial detailed information form to my careers office over a week ago, in line to arrange my first interview, but have had no reply yet. What is the usual time gap for them to get back in touch with you? 2) My Lympstone YO friend states i should try out for a RM commission (think I'm too old anyway) as the YO course is far superior to that of Sandhurst. I'm guessing he is obvisously bias, but it would be interesting to know the differences if any one could shed any light on this matter?
