can somebody hook me up with Army ROTC interview pointers / questions??
Just make sure you look professional, and show up on time. One question that I had trouble with was: "What was your greatest challenge and how did you overcome it?" Give straightforward answers and remember to incorporate the seven Army values if you can in your answers.
what are the 7 values of the Army?
You seriously don't need to know this - there are many threads that have addressed interviews in the past.
Just be yourself, remember to say "Yes, Sir" or "Yes, Ma'am", practice greeting people, shaking hands etc.
You will be asked why you want to be in the Army or an officer etc. There is no "right" or "wrong" here - be honest. If you want to research Army careers and branches start here:
Go with questions. All interviews will give you time for questions - there is no such thing as a dumb question. If you don't know then ask. If you *think* you know then ask.
Everything that everyone else has said will get you set (except knowing the 7 values of the Army...not necessary). When I was interviewed, I was lucky enough to be questioned by a very polite and down to earth officer. Remember to ALWAYS be yourself, don't over-indulge or lie because you will get caught, be calm, be humorous but focused, remember your basic manners, sit up straight, have a firm handshake, and, most importantly, be sure to "study" yourself and your past extracurricular activity, including sports and volunteer activity, before the interview, as these types of questions make up an important part of the interview.
