Just recieved a letter from Recruiting HQ staiting that my application has not been accepted. This has caused me a whole list of problems as i have started my app way back in october last year. My job was in the balance as was my house, anyhow i stupidly knocked my job on the head to pursue an Army career once again. Anyway enough from me, I have previously been a naughty boy and am now stuck with 3 criminal convictions to my name, all of which for brawling whilst drunk, some of which was my fault others i like to think where not. These occurences were of almost 4 years ago and would like to somewhat think i have grown up cosiderably from then, all of which i told my recruiter. My Afco have told me i can wait until next year until one of these convivtions is spent, thus greatly improving my chance of being accepted or to "join the TA" as he put it. So..... what to do? How to do? If theres a higher chance of me being aceppted from joining the Ta then im all for it. Surely tho there standards ar the same as the regular Army( My recruiter did not say) As you can see this puts me in a right spot. Ta very much.
