I am currently at university studying criminology. I am at a split between entering the army (RMP) as a soldier or officer. Clearly there is a large difference in pay. And I'm sure most would assume that a degree means I should be applying as an officer. But would I see any benefits from having a degree as a soldier? (faster promotion? etc.) Few things about me: I'm also in the OTC but all we seem to do is the fun stuff and haven't actually gain any insight into a life as on officer. My fitness isn't a problem (8min 12sec 1.5 mille) Just my main concern is I do not enjoy organising other people. That's not to say I can't do it, but I prefer being setting a tasks and completing them. Anyone have any suggestions to find out if officer is for me? Or questions I should ask myself. Basically I think I'd be a average officer or a excellent NCO. From reading these boards the majority of replies are complete s***, only serious answers please.
