At a recent familiarisation visit, I heard a quick comment during a briefing on army careers. The briefing officer suggested that years spent in university, could count in some way towards seniority in the army. Can anybody shed some light on this? The example given of someone spending 3 years in college and having 2.5 years seniority 'credited' to them. Not being in army (yet!) but having 5 years university under my wee civvie belt, I'm quite interested in the accuracy of the statement. Regards to all.
