Default Just graduated and heading to Monterey!

I'm willing to answer all questions since I feel over preparing is a good thing! My boot camp experience was reeeeeeaalllllly tame though so take my advice and stories but remember everyone's personal experience is different! ask away!

Word of advice - eat in the airport whenever possible! A lot of newbies get in really late at night when there's nothing open on base here. You can get reimbursed for it if you keep the receipts, I did when I got here.

Just to be clear, I'm talking about the flight from RTC to DLI. I can't speak for any other A schools, since I've never been to them.
