I'm about to start my journey to "the dark side", and was hoping for some tips and suggestions. I'll be starting AFROTC in the Fall as an AS200. Anything you guys got that you think may help with my transition would be much appreciated. Like uniforms, should I/am I allowed to wear items that will make me stick out: non-issue boots, fleece, chloroframes etc. Also how should I act in class. Would people care for real-life examples, or would it be better if I kept it all to myself? Also, I will be a crosstown cadet at a det where 70% of the cadet core is from the host school, will this make getting a FT slot harder? AAS, is it worth it? Sorry for all the questions, just want to make sure I hit the floor running. I know most dets have one or two Prior-Es, so I'd like to hear about what they did right/wrong.
