    Worst...PT for sure. 4 mile runs uphill, how the hell do they grade ranges to go uphill both north and south with the same starting/finishing point?
    29 weeks wow 18 was long enough for me. The only thing I would have liked to see more of was scenarios, and driving training.

    I didn't think gettin OC'ed was that bad. I'd do it again for a c-note...haha.
    Best - Driving School (just finished our first day and its already #1), Role Playing Scenarios
    Worst - Any boring class directly after lunch or PT (ZZZZzzzzzzzz)

    Best: Driving, shooting, and playing on the FATS machine.....

    Worst: PT/DT with a demented instructor who spent waaaaaayyy to much time in the Army wearing one of those funny Green Beanies and killing Commies for his Mommy...... And God forbid he was in a bad mood....or one of the knuckleheads in class ticked him off.... Nothing like doing an hour of TMF then going on a 4 mile "jog" through the woods........

    Best: driving, firearms, SCAT and the camraderie

    Worst: instructors in your ear for not double knotting your shoes and the good ole' "You now have five minutes to change out of your (sweaty, stinky) PT gear, shower, and into your business attire....(five minutes have elapsed)...you now have two minutes to change out of your business attire and into your Class A uniform."

    Best:
    Firearms
    Driving (mainly poking the people that wrecked the cars or landed in the little lake on the track with a stick)
    Actually being interested in classroom learning for once. *I read magazines during college bore, snore*
    My glasses got broken during PT and the training center sent me to Walmart to the Vision Center and paid for the repairs because a big red rubber ball does make that "twangggg" sound against your face.

    Worst:
    Does anybody know how many different names you can give a cheeseburger and scrambled eggs? I do.
    SUPER DRY climate in the dorms. My roommate almost had to take me to the ER because I couldn't get one of my 1,000 bloody nose's to stop bleeding.
    Team based failed room inspections because people on your team are billy goats and don't know how to clean their room.

    I hated the stress of knowing that you would be singled out if you did something wrong (even things out of your control). I'm more of a fan of positive reinforcement.

    Best part? Shooting, scenarios, red man training, etc.

    Worst? OC is at the top of my list, but running and certain academic classes (sexual harassment, ethics *snore) are up there as well.
