Can I get into the ULOTC if I don't really want to purusue a career with the army? Watch
I'm off to LSE(hopefully) in september and I'm interested in joining the University of London OTC.
I've been in my school's cadets throughout secondary school and have really enjoyed it. I know on the official site it says there isn't an obligation to join the army in the future, however, I've heard that it can be quite competitive, so do I still have a reasonable chance given I'm not interested in pursuing a permanent career in the army?
Also, was just wondering if anyone knew roughly how many spaces there will be at the ULOTC this year?

Should I/is it morally right for me to apply for the OTC? I was under the impression it is a more serious version of the cadets and it isn’t there solely to recruit for the army.
There'll be hundreds of applicants. No harm in putting your hat in the ring.
