What impressed you positively?

"Very happy students, thorough tour, the school isn't anything like West Point or the other service academies - basically like a civilian school with people wearing uniforms. Each student gets their own bone kit (real, no plastic) to take home the first year." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Gray/old facility, food wasn't great, there was no resource for finding out more about Army- and PHS-specific career progression." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The whole school is a salute-free zone, it looked like most of the "prior-service" applicants are actually ROTC/academy cadets/midshipmen" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I stayed with a student the night before - very useful for information. The morning presentations gave a good overview of the school, and the tour was the most thorough and well-organized I've seen. One downside: there weren't any Army people to answer my questions. The two interviews were very low-key, with all the typical questions. I was disappointed that the open-door policy didn't mean much, since none of the people I wanted to talk to were in their offices anyway. But overall, I left with a much better impression of the school." Report Response
