I think your questions numbers 1 and 3 were perfect…on point and relevant. Any officer would be favorably impressed, I think. Good for you for thinking that far ahead.I conducted mine with a Supply Corps O6 in August 2013. The interview lasted approximately 30 minutes and there is a form they largely go off. We chatted for a little while about common interests (sports, etc) and then the Captain basically had me fill out my form verbally. I spent about 10 minutes asking him questions about the Supply Corps that I couldn't easily find the answer to online, and at the end he mentioned he would give me a good recommendation.
Lot's more stuff.
A FITREP ( AKA FITness REPort) is your annual (sometimes more often, based on departures of reporting seniors, your arrival/departure dates, etc.) "REPORT ON THE FITNESS OF OFFICERS" assessment. That's what mine were called…formal title may have changed…name may be different for Marine Officers.Thanks so much for the help JD. Another quick question, what is FITREPS?
That's a good point. I didn't even realize the unintended implication(s) until just now. Just goes to show you can never see every angle yourself!I wouldn't recommend worrying too much, or asking about, question #2. It's just too far in your future to be immediately relevant, and, with some, could send a funny [unintended] message. Just a thought.
Ahhh…don't sweat it now. The post was more relevant to others in your same position. I'm sure you knocked it out of the park…That's a good point. I didn't even realize the unintended implication(s) until just now. Just goes to show you can never see every angle yourself!
