Hey, I'm currently in the TA signals and am at University in Leeds. However, due to University just being far too much expense for me (e.g rent and the costs associated with it), I'm considering leaving after finishing my first year and moving back up home and joining the army. The thing is, I want the physical challenge of joining the infantry, or wish to join the armoured corps (my dad was in for 15 years in the 9th/12th Royal Lancers), as I've always wanted to join the army from a young age due to my dad being in, and University and college has delayed this (I was intending on going in after University), but my dad says join and get a trade, as it's (and no insult intended to members of the infantry or armoured corps here) a bit of a waste going in something like the infantry or armoured corps without being an officer if you have A-Levels or a degree. University just isn't for me either, I'm bloody fed up of academia. Is my dads advice wise to follow if I do leave uni and go in? I don't wish to end up getting into arguments with my parents if I just disregard the advice either. Is it also wise to even leave University and go in as well? My dads now a police officer, and I was kind of thinking of joining the RMP as well, seeing as my TA Barb test score was high enough for all services. However, my dads even said 'RMP!? They're definitely not well liked! '
