Would it be beneficial to memorize everything prior to COT? I'm leaving in a week for 14-02 COT. Anyone else here doing the same?
I will be at COT 14-02 as well. I am an non-prior service Reserve JAG officer. I have not seen anything suggesting The Hawk is required for COT. The COT website says the "OTS Manual 36-2604 provides all the necessary guidance to prepare you for the challenging training days ahead." I've given OTS Manual a quick read through in advance, but my understanding is that you are expected to digest the manual over the first few days of COT.
That being said, I will be printing and looking through The Hawk as it looks like it has a decent amount of background info that could be helpful.
Where are you coming from for COT? I'm driving down from Pittsburgh.
Thanks for the reply! Glad to hear I'm not the only one from TLS in the 14-02 class. I haven't seen any activity about it on the OTS forum.
I haven't decided whether I'm flying or driving from my location here in NY/CT. A road trip seems really appealing but so does the convenience of taking a commercial flight. Another consideration is the cost. I know that 3 days on the road will cost probably 3x more than flying, but I realize that we get reimbursed. I'm just not sure when
I hope to arrive the night before so I can unwind, grab a meal and maybe link up with some fellow classmates.
In any event, I look forward to meeting you. And here's to enjoying our last few days as private citizens
