Joining RNR whilst on waiting list for RN?

As title says....

Is it possible?? I seem to remember someone saying something about it to me a while ago. However, would it not be frowned upon joining for say, 20 month then leaving to go in the RN?

Typical RNR, not only a drain on the RN resources, it's a drain on the RR resources... :D :D

As far as i'm concerned, there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn't join the RNR while waiting to go in full-time.
We have had quite a few people who have done just that in my unit - in fact it is a massive advantage as you will be more 'Navyised' than those who join with you - you will have already passed a fitness test, and have done 2 weeks at Raleigh.
Go for it - Join the RNR!!
