I'm ex-military who worked with a lot of GS personnel. If you can get a 13 slot, go for it. Otherwise, up to GS12, you're just a workerbee. Good luck!

Also a vet. Agree with the above.

EY1, thanks for the input. Do you happen to know how many years in public accounting will suffice for GS13? Or is it just what the interviewers will think of you basically? The application is cumbersome, so I just wanted to know if I'm even qualified or not. Though the work responsibilities are totally easy and doable.

This is why I feel like this interview was somewhat staged and that M&H are not exactly the most trustworthy.
