What are your general comments?

"Wonderful experience. Anyone already wanting to go there will only supplement their positive view of the school. If you're just wanting to go there because they pay your way and because there's no malpractice, they'll figure it out in the interviews and they'll weed you out. Only apply there if you're committed to military medicine (not the same as medicine in the military) and be sure to listen to the briefing." Report Response
