    Re: anyone going to ADFA

    varies massively based on year/service/position

    but each state has a quota, and that quota is filled with BOTH direct entry and undergraduate sponsorship students, so its heaps more competitive.

    ah i see, well i'll just forget about it then. i only wanted to be in the raaf for the uniform and i'm pretty sure ADFA has an entire system to keep people like me out as so they should

    Tell me about it. I think what I said was firstly the cash incentive and guaranteed employment, then I paused for a second thinking of some other reasons, then I started bullshitting about wanting to help the country and wanting to travel and shit. Why can't it just be a simple process? We wouldn't be there if we didn't want to join.

    Re: anyone going to ADFA

    Apparently the Undergraduate Scheme is only for those aspiring to become SSOs now and not GSOs.

    SSO- Specialist Service Officer, an officer who has a degree in either Health, Engineering or Legal discipline and who has a career in the ADF relevant to that degree e.g. Medical Officer, Civil Engineer etc.

    GSO- General Service Officer, an officer who does not have a degree or an officer who does have a degree that does not pertain to their job e.g. Armoured Corps Officer, Infantry Officer etc.

    Basically the Army, Navy or Air Force will only sponsor you if you are studying a degree relevant to the job that you will undertake in the Defence Force. Say, someone doing a Law Degree will go in as a Legal Officer rather than a Grunt officer etc.

    By planes, do you mean as a pilot or as an aeronautical engineer?

    Re: Adfa

    brah those replies are from ages ago.

    protip for ossifer: do a ton of sports in high school and lots of extracurriculars while keeping your grades up.

    Being in year ten i think it's still a bit early to apply, wait till year 11 and finish off your OSB before year 12.
