A realistic job preview RJP was administered to Marine Recruits shortly after arrival at the Recruit Depot. A strong experimental design utilizing placebo and control groups and three replications led to the findings that the RJP treatment groups had lower, although not statistically significant, attrition at three months, 10.3 vs. 14.9 significantly lower six- month, 14.9 vs. 23.8 and one-year 22.4 vs. 33.1 attrition rates and significantly higher performance.
