I'm starting law school at U of T in the fall but for now I'm just working in government/crown corporations for the summer, as I have the last few summers. I'm interested in pursuing a career in criminal law or perhaps corporate litigation.

The biggest part to remember when it comes to basic training is to think of it as a game. The instructors are there to reshape you (discipline, motivation, and a basic knowledge of how the military works). They tear you down first and then slowly build you back up again. They are nitpicky with things that you would normally think are stupid, like making sure folds in your shirts or underwear are exactly the same for all so they line up perfectly when you lay them on top of one another. They'll measure the folds in your sheets with a ruler to be sure you are doing it correct and if you don't, they'll tear the entire bed apart so you get to do it all over again. They'll give you tasks that they most likely don't expect you to complete on your own as they preach TEAMWORK constantly. One of my favourites was "Change parade" which usually happened when someone showed up with a crappy uniform. They'll want to inspect every single uniform you have so they'll have you get dressed in one uniform (usually with only a few minutes to get into it), march down to their office, get yelled at for something ridiculous, march back, change into something else, march down again, get yelled at, etc etc until everything you've owned has been worn and now you have to wash it all, re-iron it all and have it back in your locker before you go to bed which means the work they'd given you for the day hasn't even been started yet. MUCH FUN!!!!
That brings back some long repressed memories!!

They'll tell you things like "if you don't like the trade you can always remuster to a different one". While that is true, you can't do it for the first 4 years your in (based on your training) and there is a limited number of people that can do it based on what trade your in. It's very possible you may never get to do it. You have the luxury of the internet now to do some research. There should be information about everything.
THIS is very true and EXTREMELY important advice. I've been out for quite a while but I remember even when I was enrolling in high school I picked up on the fact they were doing this to people.

It would be interesting to see what every job pays per year. I am often surprised (assuming everyone is honest when disclosing) how much some people make and how little other occupations make.
