Here's the situation: I'm 17 years old, 18 in November. From the ROI and sitting my Leaving Certificate in June. I've done my BARB test (80) and got L2 on the numeracy on literacy. I was always interested in Officer entry so my recruiting Sgt. put me in touch with a Lt. Col whom I had a meeting with today. We discussed my options: Join as a regular soldier and do two or three years and look for commission, or go on to do a degree in September and go for direct entry then. The thing is I hate school, although I'm intelligent I've always found it so easy that it bores me.. and I don't want to end up going to University with all my friends and end up drinking every night like is the normal here. What would you do?
