    Hello, Well your EC looks really strong so that is great. Your GPA might be a question that comes up on the interview though so just be prepared to talk about it. My interview took almost an hour and a half so just be prepared for it to take a while. Be prepared to answer leadership type questions. For example I was asked as a Captain of my Cross-Country team what are some leadership situation I have been involved in and how did I handle them. Also bring a resume with you that you can leave with the PMS. Concerning dress don't overdress but don't underdress. I wore a dress-shirt and tie. Finally be respectful address your PMS as Sir or Ma'm.
