I can say that the application process went by smoothly. I was assigned to very accommodating advisors. They were able to help me from the start of the application until now that I am preparing for deployment. They were very eager to offer help, both in the technicalities of the application, and in terms of offering reassurances, encouragement, and push that I needed to get through the process.
Throughout the experience I learned the value of patience and faith. It may be a cliché, but I have grasped the reality that these two characteristics are very important. I have encountered several delays in the process and the key is be patient, while at the same time having faith that things will fall into place at the right time.
