I am a 2015 GLP selectee and currently preparing to attend Field Training this summer. I was wondering if anyone on this thread has attended Field Training as a law student and has any advice? You can PM me or reply to this post.
I attended FT last year as a 2015 GLP select (Cadre sent me last summer so I could get it out of the way). As far as advice goes, you will not be doing anything different than any other Cadet at Field Training. If you have been with your detachment for the past year then you will be more than prepared for everything that they throw at you so don't worry about it, there were about 5-6 of us who went down last year with only a couple of weeks training and did the FTAP program (an extra week of pseudo FT which includes AS100 and AS200 classes and some basic drill) and we all did just fine. Just make sure that you are physically in shape, have really great familiarity with your FTM and focus on being a good wingman and you will probably actually enjoy yourself.
To answer an earlier question, I believe from talking with my Cadre that there were about 15 selects between the GLP and OYCP for 2015. If anyone has any specific questions feel free to PM me.
