    You'll probably get at least one difficult or thought provoking question. For example I was asked very straight forward questions about my record, but was also given:

    "What would you do if a commanding officer gave you an order that you considered to be immoral?"

    I also got

    "If you were in a combat zone, and one of your men was killed under your command, how would you react?"

    Be confident, be yourself, and it will be over before you know it!
    Best of luck!

    "Why should the American taxpayers spend $400,000 on you?"

    For my interview, they mostly asked me about my essay, and elaborate on certain parts of it. Be prepared to answer if they ask you "where do you envision yourself 5-10 years from now" as they look for longevity with service in the military.
