                    Of the approximately 100 deck cadets that started college at the same time as me, 3 were female.

                        Of the 100 deck cadets? None were engineers. Funny that. :think:

                            ...meaning, that as there'd probably be even fewer female engineers (because fewer ladies tend to sign up to engineering courses in general AIUI)... I thought you were implying that 3% of cadets were female (which seems bit high).

                              I don't have hard and fast figures for this, but I'd say that 5-10% of the RFA overall is female. Not that the RFA is necessarily representative and it certainly varies substantially by department and grade. Females tend to be concentrated in comms and catering/supply.
