Hey Guys, Just got back from my first FTX and wanted to point something out for anyone applying to schools this year. Make sure you do your best to visit your top choices of battalions and check them out. There are so many differences. We met our "sister" battalion for the first time on FTX. They battalion were so different from us. Overall, they had much more bravado and hooah. While we certainly had Hooah, we definitely concentrated more on getting the job done. Of course this will change depending on the Sergeants, Officers, and cadets in charge, most Battalions have a certain vibe. Make sure that it is a good fit. Overall, it just depends on who you are. Each battalion has pros and cons.
