Dont get in trouble. Never rent a room at a nearby hotel, especially the La Quinta (they have bat phones straight back to the 232). Don't get married while in training. Don't get tattoos until you ARE a Medic. Study hard. And for god's sake, NEVER, EVER, pass out drunk during flutter kicks, in front of the CSM.

Funny. I remember every weekend boat loads of people going to hotels. I'm surprised there weren't more pregnancies! There's always at least one couple that gets a newborn every cycle.

It's too easy to get distracted. Don't get caught up in the mess of what others are doing. You'll carve your own path, and really, you are the only one who has control over whether or not you'll be selected for the opportunities to go to Airborne school, etc. Take PT seriously, study, have fun, don't get into a relationship, and enjoy your time there. It will be worth it. The heritage of medics is something to be very proud of. Always challenge yourself to learn something new about the medical field everyday. Hope this helps, best of luck.

Stay awake and pay attention. Instructors will be highlighting what's on the test, so be sure you're awake for it.
