"Arrive earlier the night before, too much can go wrong." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My first interview, but I really left with a good feeling from it. I absolutely recommend a student host to get the inside scoop ahead of time, to take you to campus and show you where to go, and put your mind at ease about the interview. Also, I arrived at 7:15am (check-in is between 7:30-8:15) because my host had to be at school early, and about half the interviewees were already there. Odd. The interviewers have no idea if you showed up on time though, so I don't see the big deal there. Be prepared to see several ROTC and current active-duty military also interviewing with you. Also, many people were already married. It's a very diverse set of individuals interviewing at this school." Report Response
