How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read this site, read their site. Read up on the different branches of service, because they ask you to choose between Army, Navy, Air Force and Dept. Health Services that very day--big decision if you're taking this school seriously!" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"How relaxed and easygoing everyone was. It wasn't just that the students were friendly, but more importantly, that they looked comfortable and relaxed. I didn't see a single stressed-out looking individual, which bodes well for a high quality of life there. The interviews matched this attitude, and were very conversational and low-key but professional. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The facilities, like most schools, are pretty ugly and "functional" instead of pleasant. But there was nowhere that I thought of as horrible or unacceptable." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How much the yearly salary is! Apparently it's gone up to $43,000, which is really impressive. Also, the driving directions provided by the school are pretty bad, so make sure to consult a map before you leave the house if you intend to drive." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"If you can imagine practicing millitary medicine, this school is great. It boasts of a much stronger curriculum than other medical schools (with 800 more hours of specialized instruction), a great family-like atmosphere, a strong student support system and expert faculty. I was impressed with everyone who spoke to us, and really think that the little bit of freedom lost by joining the military is gained by all of the perks." Report Response
