    A little late but check this site for any pointers

    Record yourself answering questions to see how you sound, does the answer make sense, do you talk enough


    And than practice

    they are assinging the dates and times.. when the list comes out if you made it you will get your time and date. if you dont make it you will be on a second list.. i think everyone's questions are different but basically your answers are going to come from your life experiences, your personal values and beliefs.

    I'm pretty sure it's pretty darn accurate. How did Yalls interview to? I thought this one was particularly difficult. Maybe just me....

    The results will be posted on the 27th. Can't wait

    Any idea how the chief interviews go or how many they plan to move forward? Is the panel a pass or fail ?

    Have my interview tomorrow morning and don't really know how they score. They might look at overall scores throughout process to make some decisions (test scores for written and physicals). Don't forget the background will probably knock some folks out too. So I'm pretty sure all that comes into to play when they decide who to move on to command staff.

    That's probably why we don't get results til the 27th because they have to do everyone's background.
