Re: anyone going to ADFA

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

Re: anyone going to ADFA

Sorry for my ignorance but what do the abbreviations stand for?
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.

Re: anyone going to ADFA

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

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.
