"Yeah but I know that this is just the beginning," Aruko replied. "We still have to take the entrance examinations in order to actually be considered worth keeping."
When Ray gave him a blank look, Aruko explained, "It's like the old school in the States called West Point. Cadets were not plebes until they took their entrance exams. Besides I read the recruitment folder thoroughly and I noted the exam part." He hoisted the shoulder bag that housed his only computer and a few other interesting gadgets higher onto his shoulder before slinging his clothing bag up. He looked around and spotted more cadet first years judging from the fact that they were still in civilian dress like he was. He nudged Ray and said, "Best to go over there. Perhaps one of the instructors will tell us what to do next."
