China's military is crying out for better-educated recruits as its armed forces undergo transition. 2011 saw a series of new regulations with the clear purpose of recruiting more college students.

An amendment to the country's military conscription removed an article that stated that full-time students can defer their military service. It took effect on Oct 29, 3 days before the military recruitment started.

The amendment also raises the maximum age for recruitment to 24 years old.

I would join the army if I were young.

Actually I applied to join the air force when I graduated from middle school, but rejected because I was near-sighted.
