Sorry for the melodramatic topic name! I was still wondering about university. To make this short, as you get XP while in University, and thus can level (sometimes several times if done at 18) times.

What classes are the levels you gain taken in? If it's in your Core or Service Class, what if it's difficult to justify taking levels in them? For example, a Rogue or Barbarian? How does Multiclassing effect the levels you take while in University?

For example, a character who first serves a term in the Navy, then has a 2-term career in the Merchants, fails his Survival rolls and goes to prison, then spends a term as a Rogue, then a term as a Traveller (the intended character class post career).

But first, he goes to University at age 18 and makes all his rolls and getting 5000XP, thus making him 3rd level before he actually starts his career! Are these levels (and thus Feats and Skills) taken as Navy, his career immediately post University? Traveller, his intended campaign class? Or even Merchant or Rogue? Even academic?

Or, some time mid-career he goes to university, in between his 2 terms as a merchant. He goes to "merchant academy?

Help! I beseech you! Not to put it too bluntly, this is a crucial part of character creation that begs for clarification and has been a major pain in trying to figure out "what the heck did the designers mean?" I don't get too excited over minor errata and errors, but if the basic _character_creation_ gives people a headache, then it's a considerable roadbloack in starting a campaign...

Ok, waiting for the blue bolts to strike me down from heaven!
