Hi, am currently on a gap year from finishing my a-levels. I have a place at uni for september. I was all set on turning down my uni offer for the army, what i want to do. But im not sure if i would regret later in life not going, not having a degree to fall back on, not having the experiences of living alone and sharing a house with mates, the nightlife etc. Do many graduates join the army? Would i feel out of place joining around 22-23? I wouldnt want to join as an officer. I would just like to join the RE doing a basic trade and hopefully progress onto specialising into something etc. Any body here who went to uni before joining the army? Got any opinions/ advice? Thanks.
