As a perfectly healthy now sixteen-year-old, your character must take the Generalized Occupational Aptitude Test (G.O.A.T.) to determine what occupation he is most suited for, a conclusion based on how you answer a variety of questions (more on that in a bit). Scroll through all the response options to gain a bit of insight into the immersive story and choose the last option to let your father be. Grab the first bobblehead Bobblehead Medicine from his work desk and head out to the corridor-there's nothing much else to do here.
Outside the classroom, the overly obnoxious Butch and his silly little gang of sycophants, collectively called the Tunnel Snakes, mercilessly badger long-time friend Amata. Hey, look it's the Fonz! Really? Leather jackets and a 1950s hairdo in the year 2277? Geez, these guys don't get out much.
When you accost Butch in Amata's defense, he tosses a bunch of threats around and ultimately leaves you with two options: help Amata or beat it. However you choose to settle the brewing situation with Butch you will be positively or negatively affected either by the gain or loss of karma based on your choices. Playing the hero card will net you some karma, of course. Karma has somewhat of an impact on the game, including what quest or dialog options are available to you. Decide now how you want to align yourself. The easiest way here is to just utilize diplomacy by selecting the first option when prompted, and avoid bloodying your fists.
Take your seat in the classroom, and the GOAT will begin shortly, although you can skip the test altogether if you can cleverly talk your way out of it. The results of the GOAT lets the game calculate what Tag Skills you start out proficiently in based on the answers you give to a series of ludicrous questions that may or may not make sense to you. Choose the answer you think fits you best, and have fun with it.
Speak with Mr. Brotch at his desk in the front of the classroom to immediately get your test results. If you're not happy with the job title he stuck you with, you can now manually comb through the Tag Skills page and select the three skills you want your character to be proficient in. We suggest taking up skills such as Speech, Medicine, Repair, Melee Weapons, etc. to start out with.
Take confidence in your new skills and leave the classroom to end the tutorial sequences of the game.
