There are a lot of things about MEPS that sucks, but it gives you a small taste of the military. I'll give you a run thru of what happens: Thursday: arrive at hotel and eat buffet, curfew is 10. Friday: Wake up call at 5 am, turn in hotel keys and eat breakfast buffet. Get on bus head to MEPS, arrive around 5:30am. Organize in front of meps in single file lines and get briefed by a drill instructer (make sure you have socks and underwear on). Take your belt off and any jewelry and head through metal detectors. Store your belongings in a room and head to the designated area. Quick run through was given to us about meps and then you begin. First you see your branch liaison(mine was air force) and he gives you your name tag. The first things I did was fill out paperwork. Next was a hearing test, vision test, and then depth perception test. Next you get your doctor interview which is private and yes you drop your pants and he feels your balls and you have to turn around and spread your cheeks. He doesnt touch your your butt though. He examines your body for scars and asks general medical questions. Next you get your blood drawn, then you have a pee test, everyone peed using the urinal and the proctor wasnt looking over our shoulders when we did it, but the bathroom was jam packed. They took my blood pressure and then you go in a room with about 10 guys, and you strip down to your underwear. They weigh you and get your height. Then you go through a series of movements (including the duckwalk) to see if your joints are good. The one that sucked the most was walking on your knees on the tile. Then if you pass everything you see your liaison and get your job and get sworn in. It sure was an experience, and I dont want to do it again. My biggest advice is to not stress it, its no big deal the test are easy. And just something i noticed, anyone who said they drink alcohol at all on the application got incomplete at meps because they have to go home and get counseling to prove they are not alcoholics and then they can come back to meps to finish. My opinion is to put zero times for the alcohol part, unless you really are an alcoholic, then i would try to get that fixed first.
