    Warfare specialist

    I got my PRNC and my entry date for Raleigh but after reading a lot of posts on here I’m worried I’ll regret my decision, is it too late to change to a weapons engineer or should I stick it out? Could anyone try and put my mind at ease about WS or is It as bad as they say?
