I am going to be heading up to Maxwell AFB for MEPS this Friday...is there anything I need to know or be prepared for? From what my recruiter said it is just a physical...no PT test or anything.
Is it a long process? Any info would be great. Thanks

if you have the minimum criteria for the HPSP recruiters, they can move forward with the paperwork and physicals and get you accepted to the scholarship. Then all you have to do is have acceptance in hand and you're good to go.

I went to MEPS at Maxwell when I enlisted in '07. I dont know if it would be different for you but I had to do the stupid little range of motion tests, drug test, physical, fingerprints and mountains of paper work. The whole process took about 9 hours and 75% of that is spent bored/waiting. Have fun.

Is it the same for officers? A 9 hour day? What time does it begin? I get out of class at 9pm on thursday and will be driving 3 hours to maxwell...so hopefully its not a 5am start.

I would mentally prepare yourself for a long day and an early start. Better off thinking it'll be worse than it actually is.
