    Listen to the Drills and ignore the drill privates, DO NOT FRATERNIZE!!!!! You will get caught, had a battle get NSOed for that a week before graduation. Lastly, right place, right time, right uniform, right attitude.

    I know you didn't ask for advice but there it is. It's a great experience. Make sure you take time to enjoy it!!!

    ETA: There are SOME things you should volunteer for. Range detail usually is A LOT of fun, my Drill SGT even brought us ice cold gatorade from the PX during another detail. Just know whose detail you are on

    Several people have said it already but it bears repeating (and get used to repeating things, you're in the military now....) keep your head down, pay attention, and remember it will be over eventually.

    Most importantly, get used to "hurry up and wait" you will be doing that for the rest of your career.

    Best of luck and congratulations.

    Thanks for your service, and good luck! At least the Drill Sergeants can't hit you like the old days.
