"Nothing." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The morning session was very informative, with a series of speakers and presentations. As someone with no military background, I learned a lot about the logistics of being in the military. We went on a tour with a student, which was ok. We then broke for lunch, and finished the afternoon with two 30 minute interviews. Overall, this was the best interview organization I've experienced. The other schools where I have interviewed filled the day with useless BS like student panels and stuff. I liked how they just presented us with the facts, interviewed us, and sent us on our merry ways. " Report Response
