I'm only 16 at the minute and in year 11 but I'm hoping to eventually join the marines after I've finished Uni. Was just wondering if there were many people planning on joining straight out of Uni? Or for those who have completed RT were there many there who had just been uni? I'm only 16 at the minute so got plenty of time to train and even change my mind. Whilst I'm here might as well ask, whats the average time from first submitting your application to beginning rt? Assuming you apply at the optimum time.
