What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I should have given it more thought as to how long it would take me to get there in the morning. Stay close by or with a student host." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Left the house at 520am, road the bus for 45 minutes to the metro, road the metro for another 75 minutes or so, then walked to the school. Got there super early only to sit around and look at other people in uniform. I was kind of suprised at how many of them there were. The presentations in the morning were a little long and kind of boring, that was expected. The campus was impressive. Lots of resources. The afternoon kind of drags on. You have to spend time at the security office for your security clearance paperwork, you need to stop by regarding our physical, and also fit in the two interviews. It was a long day but I felt I answered all the questions I had." Report Response
